Valley and her calf spent most of their time at the surface. Even when they dove, they were only underwater for about 4 minutes at a time. The calf seemed especially content to stay at the surface. Just about the whole time we watched it, it rolled lazily on the water surface, often giving us a great look at its flipper that it would wave in the air before flopping it back down to its side.
Since they weren't too far offshore, we got to spend lots of time with Vally and her calf, but eventually it was time to head home. As we turned west, we saw another humpback dive just off the port side of the boat! We waited nearly 10 minutes, but the whale never reappeared.
After a nice cruise through the Isles of Shoals, we were back in Rye Harbor after another fantastic weekend of Fall whale watching! Thanks to all who came aboard today!
