Owl A female humpback born in 1986. This social female had a new calf in 2013!
Pinball Female humpback born in 1989. Pinball had a calf in 2012!
A male humpback first sighted in1988. He was named for the Finnish word for "saddle"
Hornbill was first seen by researchers in 1977. This mature male has been visiting Jeffreys Ledge frequently in recent years. Although a bit of a loner, Hornbill often surprises visitors by surfacing close by without warning.
Comet is a female fin whale who surprised us with a calf in 2007! She was one of the first fin whales we began tracking and is a sporadic visitor to the Ledge.
Ladder is a male fin whale first sighted in 1984. He is easily recognized by his distinctive prop scars.
Fjord is one of our most frequently-seen fin whales! He is a male with a distinctive, huge notch in his fin.
Dingle was first seen by researchers in 2003 and has been seen on Jeffreys Ledge frequently ever since. Dingle appears to be quite social, sometimes spending time with other fin whales and even Atlantic white sided dolphins occasionally.
Scar was first seen by researchers in 1995. This whale’s deep and distinctive scar, possibly caused by a collision with a boat, has not changed since 1995, leading researchers to believe it was acquired quite some time ago.

These colorful coasters are designed and created by Liz and Mike of Mainely-Fish Prints using 100% RECYCLED float-rope found on the Maine Coast. Throughout the years float-rope has been used by lobstermen to tether together their buoys to lobster traps on the bottom of the ocean floor. As the rope becomes worn, it is not longer usable and often ends up in local landfills. With each coaster set you purchase, you are keeping a little something from ending up in the landfill!
Because of the nature of collecting and using the recycled rope we can not guarantee the colors that will be available at any given time. Colors range from orange to green to blue and everything in between! Coasters are shipped in sets of 4 in various colors and color combinations. Available sets: Single color, 2 color combo or 4 color combo
Please allow up to 2 weeks for your coasters to ship.
