Whale watching
Humpbacks, Fin whales, and Minke whales again

Our 21st consecutive trip with whales started with a breaching humpback near Montauk.  This young humpback, like so many others showed signs of entanglement.  We headed to another area (about 11 nm out) where we found 2 whales that we believe were fin whales, but couldn’t get good enough views to confirm absolutely. On our way back in, we found another breaching, flipper slapping humpback and a minke whale.
