Every August I go to Massachusetts for a quick, end of summer get-a-way. This year the weather was bleak and rainy for nearly the entire trip. On the one clear day, I was fortunate to again go whale watching between Provincetown and Boston.
During the trip, we saw more than 40 whales and 10 dolphins. The ship captain reported that we were fortunate, as it was rare to see the whales feeding on the surface. We were fortunate as nearly a dozen were feeding – including several that came right up to the edge of the boat – just feet from me! Below are some pictures and video of the experience.
