Fringe the Humpback Whale
Fringe is a fantastic mother. She has more calves than all the other whales except one, Istar. Every two or three years she brings a new calf back to the same feeding grounds she has frequented since 1979. She was named for the black fringe that borders her entire fluke. I think Fringe will continue to come back to this same area with even more calves in future years. Her family tree is below.

The story of Fringe and her family is four minutes in length. You will meet eight of her ten calves (Tassel, Sirius, Thread, Tornado, Brittlestar, Molar, Fiber and Freestyle).
You also meet three of Fringe’s grandcalves by Tornado.
Highlights of this segment include Freestyle standing on his head, breaching and lobtailing with his mother, Tornado close to the boat, Sirius with his black flippers and Tassel on a close approach, doing a headstand and coming up out of the water tail first!

If you adopted Fringe from any of the Adopt A Whale Programs in the US or UK, you can meet her!
We selected the very best clips of Fringe from 17,096 trips to the feeding grounds where this whale can be sighted from April thru October.
You will be delighted to spend 20 minutes with Fringe feeding very close with Silver. The feeding is very close to the boat at times. Both large mature females have calves with them too.
