Atlantic Queen June 19, 2013

A bit of a blustery morning, but we braved the occasional splash over the boat and headed out towards Jeffreys Ledge. We started to make our way out to Jeffrey in search of some whales and decided to head to southern Jeffreys Ledge because there had been sightings in this area over the last few days. It was very quiet at the ledge as we continued to search for animals. Luckily after the long wait we came across a spout in the distance and decided to investigate. It was Satula, a male humpback whale that we see regularly on Jeffreys Ledge.

Satula gets his name because of the distinct marking on his left fluke. What does it look like to you? Supposedly it is supposed to resemble a saddle.

Satula is also one of our adoptable whales. If you would like to adopt Satula or one of our other whales you can visit

Thank you to the students from Strafford Elementary for making today such a great trip!
