From Naturalist Dianna:

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Our trip this afternoon took us to the southern part of Jeffreys Ledge. Seas were much nicer than I had anticipated and the sun was shining! Still, it is a bit cool out there as the water temperature is only 50 degrees.  Lots of whales of several species were spotted near and far. We spent most of our time with four humpback whales including one who is named Shuffleboard, another who we have just identified as Scylla, and then we saw Owl with her newest calf!

This was especially exciting for me, the co-founder of Blue Ocean Society, as Owl is one of our adoptable humpback whales! We love seeing her return year after year. You can adopt Owl by clicking here.

Also spotted was a sly sei whale, and a minke whale. A harbor seal pup came up to us curiously to check us out, and the northern gannets were circling above, searching for fish to catch.

I am looking forward to getting back out there tomorrow!
