End of Whale Watch Season - Halloween Whale Watch

NECWA and Captain John Boats collaborate on a Marine Wildlife Internship program. Captain John provides two free tickets each day for NECWA interns to accompany whale watching passengers offshore. NECWA interns assist with educational outreach while offshore and when on the whales, they collect sighting data and photographic/video information. Later, NECWA interns will analyze this information and share their findings with other research groups in the area.

This internship program is a wonderful way for students and professionals within the New England area to get experience in the field of marine biology and marine science. We want to thank Captain John Boats for providing this opportunity to NECWA interns since 2005.

This Sunday, October 31st, is our last day of whale watching for the 2010 season. To celebrate this event, Captain John Boats is offering a Halloween special (see below). We hope you can join us this Sunday for our last whale watching trip. By supporting Captain John Boats, you help support research, education and conservation activiites that NECWA staff and interns conduct on behalf of the whales and other unique coastal marine wildlife that feed off our New England shores.

Best, Krill
President, NECWA
