2013 Sightings | July 8

We enjoyed a four-species day on the southwest corner of Stellwagen Bank today! First, we found a very cooperative finback whale, deep feeding and cruising slowly at the surface near the boat. There was also a grey seal spotted in the area around the finback. On the way back to Boston we spotted a different finback whale and a minke.

But the humpback whale sighting stole the show. We found Nile as she was demonstrating textbook deep feeding. On one surface, however, she lunged out of the water and slapped her chin on the water, then she did a series of full breaches right next to the boat!

This was one of the best trips I’ve been on this year!
