June 27th whale watch aboard the Captain John Boats

An exciting day of wildlife observation aboard the Captain John Whale Watching boat. Coral, a humpback whale provided an exciting view of lunge feeding and straining as sooty shearwaters flitted across the water sharing in the feast of bait being pushed to the surface by bluefin tuna.

Also in the area was a handful of Minke whales, smallest of all the baleen whales. Please join us as we look forward to seeing you and sharing these wonderful experiences off our coastal waters with Captain John Boats and our crew.

9 am whale watch on the Tails of the Sea with Nick

Nick and Leah had a fabulous day offshore with feeding humpback whales aboard the Tails of the Sea, a commercial whale watching vessel owned and operated by Captain John Boats. Thank you Captain John for making positions available for our interns aboard your whale watching boats. What a great experience and opportunity.

And thanks Nick for a great job on recording these types of behaviors from very endangered and rare animals. Great job!

Seabird & Whale Tales excursion

Update on June 12, 2011 at 6 am:

As of this morning, the trip is still a go. It will be a wet day so please dress appropriately.

Again, we plan on heading down the backside of the Cape since this is where the majority of the whales and seabirds have been sighted. Yesterday, there were great sightings of humpbacks and seabirds just off Highland Light. The word from the captain was that the whales, seabirds and the bait were moving to the north! Yeah!

We ask that all registrants please meet down at the Town Wharf in Plymouth by 7:30 am. We need to leave the dock by 8 am sharp for we need to be back at the dock by 4 pm sharp.

Call our Trip Manager, Krill Carson (508-566-0009) if you have any problems or concerns tomorrow morning.

Dress for the weather (rain and a bit windy).

Best, Krill Carson
President, NECWA
