Despite the bumpy seas today, we still had a great trip! We started out with a small pod of Atlantic white-sided dolphin, a species of toothed whale we tend to see more often a little later in the season. We continued on and came across a mom/calf pair of humpback whales that turned out to be Cajun and her calf. Cajun never ended up showing her tail, but I was able to identify her by her dorsal fin and her calf’s very distinctive tail fluke pattern. The calf was doing a bunch of “headstands” where it came up tail first and held its tail up, holding the position. The calf also did a couple of tail breaches, which is always exciting!
