Some sad news has hit the Capt. Bills community. After 30 years of humpback research and education, The Whale Center of New England has decided to close their doors. We, at Capt. Bills, are hoping to continue the mission of the WCNE and are committed to both the conservation of whales as well as the education about our areas’ abundant marine life. We are currently exploring all avenues to keep the whale exhibit and humpback whale skeleton known as “Inland” intact and accessible to the public for educational purposes. We would like to thank Mason Weinrich and the rest of the staff for their hard work and compassion, and keeping this organization going for as long as they did.
