Sperm Whale on Jeffreys Ledge!

For the past few weeks we have been traveling to both Jeffreys and Stellwagen with lots of various and great sightings!  If you have been following us on Facebook or twitter you probably already know, but on July 7th we were very lucky to find a Sperm whale on Jeffreys Ledge!  This is a very rare sighting for us seeing as Sperm whale are usually found in much deeper and colder waters than here.  Last time we got a report of a Sperm whale was in 1995, so if you were on the boat this day consider yourself very lucky to have witnessed this species!  Many thanks to the New Hampshire whale watch boat Granite State for sending us a picture of our boat with the Sperm whale.

    Glad such a rare sighting was able to be seen by multiple boats! From all of us on the Granite State, thank you for sharing your photo with us as how often does anyone get a chance to get a picture of their vessel with a SPERM WHALE?!? What a memory!
