What a scorcher on land!! It was great to beat the heat offshore! We found an area that seemed to be filled with minke whales today!! At least 4, maybe 5, whales were in a small area near Jeffreys Ledge. At one point, you could see a minke whale in almost every direction! We spent some time with one that seemed to be at the surface a little more than the rest. This one was familiar- I'm pretty sure we've seen it in the past few weeks. Minke whales are not very distinctive, but it is possible to differentiate between individuals based on scars and markings.
