This whale likes to eat! It’s no secret that Stellwagen Bank is a productive feeding ground, and Shuffleboard regularly takes full advantage of its fruitful waters. Over the past couple of seasons she’s been one of our most frequently spotted humpbacks, and is often observed kick feeding and using bubbles to corral fish under the water. She’s a favorite of many local whale watchers, who enjoy watching her powerful surface lunges that send fish flying. In the summer of 2018, Shuffleboard was outfitted with a temporary satellite tag. Her movements and data will be used as a part of an ongoing study into the humpbacks’ health and habitat use. One of our most memorable sightings of Shuffleboard from the 2018 season was of her cooperatively feeding with two other humpback whales. All three wowed us by lunging through bubble clouds alongside the boat!
