 Her Story

Nile’s fluke pattern

Nile was born in 1987 to a well-known humpback named Mars.  For years, Nile was thought to be a male, but surprised researchers by bringing a small calf into the Gulf of Maine in 1998.  Nile was named for the long, black mark on the left side of her fluke that splits much like the Nile river in Egypt.

Nile’s  personality seems to reflect that of Mars‘ because Nile brings her calves up to the whale watch boats on a regular basis.  Nile’s popularity is the result of her being very active and surprising boats full of people by breaching, lobtailing and flippering when near boats.

Nile breaching this close really surprised all on board the boat that day!
