July 13 Atlantic Queen

It was a completely different day out at Jeffreys Ledge yesterday. The day before was gusty and wavy, but yesterday was as calm as glass with a subtle breeze. A beautiful day for a whale watch. We left the harbor and made our way out to the northern region of Jeffreys Ledge near Boon Island. Not long after arriving we came across a minke whale. This minke whale was feeding in the area and gave passengers some wonderful looks. Weather like yesterday is perfect for minke whale watching.

After spending time with the first minke whale we decided to head a little further north where we came across a second and third minke whale. 

While we were watching the minke whales we saw a spout in the distance. It was a fin whale by the name of Streak who was first seen back in 1982. It's always exciting to see such a large whale out at Jeffreys Ledge.

There was also a blue shark sighting, a few harbor seals, and lots of juvenile gannets in the area. Happy to see so much life out at Jeffreys Ledge.
