Trident the Humpback Whale
Trident was born in 1982 to a whale named Flag. She was named for a faint mark on her fluke that resembles a three-pointed fish spear carried by Neptune. It is near the cut in her fluke but cannot usually be seen in pictures.
Trident has been entangled in fishing gear on more than one occasion. The resulting cut on her fluke makes Trident an easy whale to identify on fluking dives. She was last rescued from an entanglement in 2003.
Trident was also seen with a fishing line on her fluke in 2008.

You will be delighted to spend 20 minutes of excellent footage of Trident and her calf, Chaos. You see both mother and calf very close to the boat for a long visit. Before they leave, you see both lobtailing, defined as slamming their tails on the water.
