Humpback Whale- "Gemini"

Megaptera novaeangliae

Description:

A male individual as per the naturalist on board the whale watching vessel.. It was with one other male.. His name eludes me and they both came upon a quite larger female which never got identified.. Gemini parted company from his male friend and followed the female..

Habitat:

Off the Mount Dessert RockLighthouse.. Maine

Notes:

The encounter lasted for about an hour with multiple sightings for all three and multiple dives.. Mount Desert Rock is a remote, treeless island situated approximately 25 nautical miles south of College of the Atlantic, in Bar Harbor, Maine. Since the early 19th century the island has had a light tower, and various buildings to house light-keeper families. In the 1950s the island was occupied by the United States Coastguard. Now it is the home of the Edward McC. Blair Marine Research Station.
