We started off the trip with the best minke whale sighting I've had in a long time. This minke whale was just past the Isles of Shoals, and surfaced off the bow of the boat several times, giving us great looks at the "minke mittens" on its pectoral fins! (I was sorry I didn't get any pictures of this great minke whale!)
Then we headed down to an area on southern Jeffreys Ledge, where we found one of our favorite whales, "Pinball," who's also one of our adoptable whales! This 24-year old female humpback was cruising around, not seeming to pay much attention to the fact that there were a number of boats (and probably hundreds of people) watching her.
