Today was a beautiful day to go on a whale watch. The weather was clear, pleasantly cool, and the sunshine felt wonderful. In addition, Stellwagen has really started to come to life. Over the last week there has been a noticeable increase in birds, bait, and best of all, whales! The calm seas made for great viewing of the humpbacks beneath the surface. Hancock and Shuffleboard both spent time feeding and coming close to the boat. There have also been a number of basking shark sightings on the bank over the last week, and today was no different. Basking sharks are the second largest fish (after the whale shark), and one of three plankton eating fish. And, I haven’t even mentioned the eight minke whales, and 10 fin whales that were in the area, as well.
