This morning on the Cetacea’s 9 a.m. whale watch, we headed north towards Jeffrey’s Ledge. On the way, we encountered thick patches of fog, limiting visibility greatly. We moved around quite a bit to continue searching, but unfortunately there were no whale sightings. All passengers were issued rain checks, just like the 10 a.m. trip.
