Today was my first trip of the season and although the circumstances weren’t perfect, it felt amazing to be back out on the water!
In total we were treated to several Minke and Humpback Whales, dolphins all throughout our travels, loads of seals, a single Fin Whale, and a pod of Harbor Porpoise right in the harbor of all places!
The individual pictured here was our best whale of the day, but unfortunately it never showed us its fluke pattern so its identity remains a mystery. This whale was very slow moving and approached us closely multiple times for several minutes. Eventually, it went on about its day which allowed our captain to slowly move out of the area as well.
It was great to see Stellwagen Bank with so much life and if it’s a sign of what’s to come this season, we’re in for a great year! I’m already looking forward to next weekend!
