|A fin whale near Scituate|
About 15 miles southeast of Boston near Scituate, we spotted the blow of a large fin whale, and shortly after we spotted another. At first these whales were sporadic and taking quick dives, so we headed further south for a bit in search of something else. While we did spot a minke whale and possibly the blow of a right whale, we decided to head back to where the fin whales were and ended up having great sea conditions to watch them! We observed one larger adult and a smaller juvenile, both deep feeding and traveling in the same area.

Also the northern gannets were spectacular today! Several diving gannets feeding around the fin whales, overall making it a great spring day on the water.
