First Whale Watch Trip Report for 2022

I was anxious to get out on Cape Ann Whale Watch’s Hurricane II, but wanted to plan my outing carefully watching the weather conditions. BUT they had such a successful first outing that I just had to go out on Sunday despite the “Choppy Seas” warning and the grey skies. (not to mention the cold!) I was very glad I went.

Though we did not see a repeat of some behaviors seen the day before, we did get to watch a happy young calf breaching several times seemingly with great joy and abandon. We saw many whales including mother/calf pairs; more seals than I have ever seen out there; and a pod of dolphins as guides. Their interns (shout out Keirsten) are stellar at the education portion of the trip and the naturalist Tina was friendly and informative. The seas were, indeed, choppy, so an additional shout out to friend Jake for helping me stay firmly on my feet.

I easily made online reservations at Cape Ann Whale Watch; parked in their lot on Main St and relaxed in their care for a couple of hours. See additional story details and pictures at Pat D’s Photos and Adventures on Facebook. I hope to meet you out there someday! Even if you’ve been on a whale watch, each is unique and entertaining.
