August 12-14, 2012 at the Great South Channel10 year old humpback whale named Wave

18 HUMPBACKS, 4 FIN WHALES, 1 MINKE WHALE, 600 COMMON DOLPHINS, AND THOUSANDS OF PELAGIC BIRDS
Another successful Great South Channel trip (our 12th trip since 2002). We are still at 100% success at finding whales on our offshore trips. On this trip we found 18 humpback whales (12 have been ID'd by Orla O'Brien of WCNE and others). Only one of these have made it to Stellwagen this year. Also found a few fin whales; a voraciously surface feeding minke whale; and an aggregation of about 600 common dolphins.

We have now encountered 655 humpbacks in our 12 trips to the Great South Channel.  With the assistance of the Whale Center of New England, the Center ofr Coastal Studies, and the FlukeMatcher groups on Flickr and Facebook we have photo-identified 269 different whales during these trips.
