From Naturalist Beth:

This morning we traveled to the southern end of Stellwagen Bank, there we started our trip with two humpback whales, Timberline and UFO. Timberline came right over to the boat, tail breached off our bow, and hung right underneath our boat. Timberline turned over to get a better look at our boat, we could clearly see the whale’s eye! Close to boat behavior is one of the most amazing things to see out on the water. That would have been enough, but we moved into an area with another 12-15 whales. Three calves in the area, Cajun’s calf, Hancock’s calf, and Perseid’s calf were all tail breaching. The adults were deep feeding, one of the coming up filtering at the surface. We also saw Aerospace, Etch-a-Sketch, Eruption, and Venom. It was an incredible morning!
