2013 Sightings: May 28, 12pm

The Asteria had a great day on the water. The seas were calm, and there were many Northern gannets as well as several different species of gulls in the area. Passengers enjoyed seeing several species of whale—while we spent most of our time with a humpback, there was a fin whale traveling not too far off from us most of the time, and a minke whale popped up right next to our humpback, and close to the boat.

Springboard's fluke

Our humpback whale was female Springboard, who was first seen in 1997. Springboard was feeding using a low bubble cloud, lunging below the water out of sight, but surfacing regularly and fairly close to our boat.
