Finally, it feels like summer has begun on Stellwagen Bank! For the last week we have been witnessing an increase in, visible, bait, birds, and whales. However, we still had not seen an abundance of humpbacks (aside from our ever reliable Hancock and Shuffleboard), until Saturday. Our morning trip had five humpbacks, including Milkyway and calf. But, we could see loads of humpbacks further to the east of us. In the afternoon we went back to roughly the same area, and had a whole new set of humpbacks that we didn’t see in the morning. It was nice to see some of our “regular” Stellwagen whales, like Anvil and Cardhu, I had been missing them so far this season!
