July 7 Atlantic Queen

A very still day out at Jeffreys Ledge today! Unfortunately it was still quite hot out on the water, but it was very calm waters making for an enjoyable trip. We started to head out past the Isles of Shoals when we spotted a disturbance in the distance. We had a very quick sighting of a pair of harbor porpoise. Shortly after we had two sightings of harbor seals, my first seal sighting of the season. Making our way out further to Jeffreys Ledge we spotted a spout in the distance.  It was Comet, one of our adoptable fin whales. Comet was giving passengers some wonderful looks!

We then decided to press on and look for some other species. We came across a minke whale that was circling out boat. We had some wonderful looks at this whale.

Then we saw some disturbance again and what we thought were fins. It turned out to be a school of blue fin tuna. Our fishing crew on board was so excited to see some tuna out at Jeffreys Ledge.

We then decided to make our way back to Rye Harbor with a quick stop with Comet again. While we passed the Isles of Shoals again we had another harbor seal sighting. Overall it was a wonderful trip. Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed it with us!
