From Naturalist Beth:

Today was a great day out on Jeffreys Ledge! The weather was perfect for whale watching. We started our trip with a pod of around 100-150 Atlantic white-sided dolphins milling in the area with a fin whale. The dolphins surfaced right next to the boat, the water was calm so you could clearly see the characteristic white stripe that gives them their name. The fin whale surfaced next to the boat, we got great looks! We passed by more fin whales in the area on our way to watch three humpback whales, Spoon (Bilbo), Cirrus, and Willow (a new whale for me!). They spent time resting at the surface right next to the boat. Amazing way to end the trip!
