Two Blue Whales in GOM!

Posted on August 26, 2016

Not one, but TWO blue whales spotted in the Gulf of Maine off of the NH Coast… amazing!! We wish we were there to see that!

Did you know that Blue whales are the largest mammals on earth and can reach lengths over 100 feet long? Wow!

This from the Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation: Two BLUE WHALES seen off our shores today!! The crew aboard Granite State Whale Watch saw a pair of rare, endangered blue whales traveling off the coast this morning. Blue whales are the largest animal to ever live on Earth! They can reach lengths over 100 feet! Blue whales are rare in our area, and are usually found off of northern Canada.
