Whales have been amazing lately! Yesterday was a bit tough for us since the whales were spending most of their time underwater, but today was incredible with at least 20 humpback whales just a dozen miles from Gloucester!  We had several groups of humpback whales and some solitary ones. Several times today, the whales surfaced right next to us, covering us with their blows! It’s not every day we can say we were spit on by a whale!  Some of our whales today were identified as Bayou, Pitcher, Bungee, Flamingo, Kappa and Victim.  The pelagic birds were amazing as well with dozens of northern gannets, Cory’s shearwaters and great shearwaters soaring about.
