2013 Sightings | September 14

Today on the Asteria we headed to Jeffrey’s Ledge and were able to find two scattered fin whales in the area! We also spotted a small pod of harbor porpoise on our way north. It was great to finally find some whales after our drought this week.

A fin's whale: note the distinctive chevron pattern

W spent time with one of the fin whales, that was taking 5 minute dives with short surfacings. Passengers were treated to a fantastic look of the whale’s right side near the end of the trip, so we got a great look at its distinctive chevron pattern. Near the end of the trip the whale became a bit more sporadic with longer dives, so we then began our trip back home.
