2013 Sightings: May 30, 12 pm

Today on the Aurora we saw 3 minkes, 2 finbacks, and 1 humpback whale. We had a finback whale pop up in front of us as we headed out to Stellwagen Bank. We then continued out to the middle of Stellwagen Bank and found two minke whales deep feeding and changing course a lot.

We next found a single humpback whale named Diablo who was taking pretty short dives and changing direction very rapidly. She even surfaced with water spilling out of her mouth indicating that she was in fact deep feeding.

Diablo is 30 years old and was born to a whale named Five-J. We got some great looks of her as she continuously surfaced really close to the boat. A fin and minke whale surface a little further away.
