Olympia the Humpback Whale
Olympia was named for five barnacle scars that looked like the rings of the Olympic symbol. These scars have since faded and are no longer visible. But her tail pattern is unique and I have seen her many times on Stellwagen Bank. She is the second most favorite great-grandmother of the seven known in the world. Salt is the most famous of all.
Olympia is an adoption whale at Ocean Alliance
