2013 Sightings | September 20

We went north past Cape Ann and towards Jeffrey's Ledge today and ended up just north and west of the corner of the ledge in New Hampshire state waters. On the way, we saw three individual minke whales, a school of tuna breaching in the distance and a pod of harbor porpoise!

We kept on our way toward where we heard there was some humpback activity and found Valley and her calf, deep feeding in association with Cacophony. We got consistent flukes from all three whales!

On the return trip, we stopped to view a pod of Atlantic white-sided dolphins. Oh, and Captain Tom spotted a grey seal next to the boat to top it all off!  It was a six species day, not including birds.  We saw a couple gannets, a lot of gulls, and a few shearwater.
