From Naturalist Beth

This morning we traveled down to the southern end of Stellwagen Bank. After a few days onshore due to bad weather, we weren’t sure where the whales would be. We found Firefly and calf traveling with Nile. We were able to get great close looks at the trio along with a few whales traveling through the area. Firefly and Nile were feeding

This afternoon we traveled down to the southwestern edge of the bank. We started with a humpback whale feeding at the surface. The whale was blowing bubbles and came up open mouth for a few surfacings. We moved on to a group of four humpback whales including Pele, Jabiru, and Eruption. The group was deep feeding. We ended our trip with great looks at Firefly and calf along with Nile. We also saw a few minke whales in the area as well!
