We headed a bit north of the southwest corner of Stellwagen Bank. A few miles west of the bank, we passed through an area were over 50 small fishing vessels were fishing for giant bluefin tuna. These giants are the most commercially valuable species of fish that migrates great distances to feed in our productive waters offshore.

Here are some photos of this same experience. How trusting this mother is as she and her calf continued to nurse so close to us.
