Whale Watch Charter Huge Success

Thanks to Cape Ann Whale Watch for the charter trip aboard the Lady D with Captain Nick and Laura today under threatening skies and choppy seas to seek whales. We had a hugely successful (although a bit wet) trip and felt completely safe with the crew taking appropriate precautions to protect all of us against the virus.  Our masked family group of only 5 (the limit) enjoyed every minute.  The weather wasn’t perfect and the captain was careful to temper our expectations and make sure we were comfortable aboard choppy waters. He was even wonderful enough to turn back to the dock when one of us forgot their camera………good thing he went back, or there wouldn’t be this post today! (thanks Capt Jim for the hand there)

We enjoyed 2 separate sightings with a pair of whales in one area and 3 playful whales in the other area. There was even a full breach!!!! None of us was quick enough to get it on camera, but we got to see that as well as another “nose” breach.  It was a private 4 hour trip which cost a bit more than 4 tickets for the Hurricane II, BUT the experience of being close to the water made it an entirely different trip and totally worthwhile……PLUS we got 5 tickets for a future whale watch. So I feel it was worth the extra cost for the experience we had. I will be booking another. 

As you can see here, the skies were a bit grey so some of these photos almost appear to be black and white, but I hope they tell the story of a great day of sighting whales.
