May 24

From Naturalist Dave:

It was a beautiful day on the water. Hardly a cloud in the sky, although Mother Nature made us work pretty hard for our 11 humpbacks today, battling through a fairly strong wind and building sea. We steamed 30 miles from port to the southern end of Stellwagen, but were rewarded for our efforts with some great close up looks at Jabiru and her calf. A welcome surprise as this is the 1st time Jabiru has ever been sighted with a calf in the 13 years since 1st being identified back in 2002. There were nine other humpbacks in the same general vicinity of Mom and calf this afternoon, but the calf’s curiosity around our boat and frisky behavior kept our attention for most of the trip. All and all, a great day on the water!
