Cape Ann Whale Watch Back on the Water!

We took a whale watch tour on the Hurricane II yesterday to experience the whales (of course) as well as to experience the COVID era whale watch. Their tours are currently running at 30% capacity which means about 100 people. All must wear masks unless seated, the crew sanitize high-touch areas every half hour. Six foot distances are marked to assist with keeping your distance while aboard and most passengers seemed to be compliant and aware. Measured boarding and debarking are in place. It was my first experience with a larger sized group so I was a little wary, but I felt safe especially outside in the fresh air while under sail.  Tickets and additional info here.

We saw 5-6 whales, including a mother/calf combo. We thank Capt. Johnny, Jessie, Cole, and Kaitlyn (I am sorry I did not catch all the names) for the great trip during which we felt safe to observe Bayou (tail slapping)  and Spell, who was lunge feeding. We also saw mother humpback Twine and her 2020 calf.  The day out there was a little bit grey but we did get a few good shots.
