During the summers of 1986 and 1987, I worked as naturalist on a whale watch boat in Southern Maine. Most of the time we went out to Jeffrey's ledge which is where we saw Fissure. He was a two year old when we first saw him. We knew he was two because he had been seen as a calf with his mother Veil #0130 in 1984. Allied whale has catalogued over 6000 humpback whales in the North Atlantic!

Over the two summers we encountered this young male six times.Each time we met him an amazing interaction occured. I will tell the stories of these meetings.
