June 1 Atlantic Queen

What a beautiful day out on the water. It was so nice to escape the heat on land. We headed out of the harbor with a little southerly wind which kept everyone nice and cool during today's trip. Today we traveled about 24 miles off the coast of Rye, out to a place called Jeffreys Ledge. Jeffreys Ledge is one of the primary feeding grounds for the Gulf of Maine whales, and a great place to go when you need to eat 1 to 2 million calories every day!

We started the trip off with Boomerang. She is a female humpback who recently had a calf last year. She was looking good, and gave the passengers a few great looks at her fluke.

After spending some time with Boomerang we decided to move on because we saw another spout in the distance. This spout belonged to Pinball. Pinball is another female humpback whale who also had another calf last year! Pinball is one of our adoptable whales. If you are interested in adopting Pinball or any of the other adoptable whales, you can visit

While we were waiting for Pinball to come back to the surface from one of her dives we also had a quick minke whale pass our bow. You had to be equally as quick to see the little whale, as it zoomed past our bow in search of fish.

Thank you to everyone who made today's trip as enjoyable as it was. It was so nice to be back out on the water.
