2013 Sightings | August 5

We found FOUR humpback whales in the southwest corner of Stellwagen Bank today. Pinball and Nile were moving around quite a bit in the same area as a pair of whales named Geometry and Etch-A-Sketch. The dynamic duo was bubble feeding and coming up to the surface with enlarged throats. Their heads came quite a ways out of the water, giving passengers some incredible looks at their pleats!

A surprise close encounter with our pair Geometry and Etch-A-Sketch as they swam at our boat and dove under us

Geometry is a male born in 1997 to a whale named Star, and Etch-A-Sketch is a female born in 1998 to a whale named Thalassa.

Since the whales were all changing directions and moving around, we were able to get great looks at all four and have whales on both sides of our boat at once! It was a very exciting and busy day out on the North Atlantic—spectacular weather with blue, sunny skies and lots of whales.
