Owl Pinball
A female humpback born in 1986. This social female had a new calf in 2013!
Female humpback born in 1989. Pinball had a calf in 2012!
Satula Hornbill


A male humpback first sighted in 1988. He was named for the Finnish word for "saddle"

New for 2014: Hornbill

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 Ladder


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 Dingle


Fjord is one of our most frequently-seen fin whales! He is a male with a distinctive, huge notch in his fin.

New for 2014: Dingle

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.


New for 2014: Scar

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.
