2013 Sightings: June 15, 3 p.m.

Today on the Asteria we headed to the southern tip of Jeffery’s Ledge where we found Pinball actively feeding by blowing bubbles and kick feeding. She even dove under our boat and popped up on the other side just feet from us. All the passengers on board got up close looks as she lingered at the surface and took short dives!

Pinball’s giant blowholes
As a Mysticete whale (baleen whale), she has two blowholes while an Odontocete (toothed-whale) like a killer whale only has one blowhole.

Overall, it was a beautiful day out on the water.
