Thursday, July 21, 2011 (11 am whale watch)
11 am whale watch - Dianne
The weather forecast predicted that today would be the hottest day so far this year, and we all know how hot the Town Wharf can be. So imagine the relief everyone felt when the cooling breezes picked up and made it one of the most beautiful summer days ever!
As we left the harbor and moved out into Cape Cod Bay the winds unexpectedly picked up some more and seas began to build. Our passengers had a rocky and rolling trip out to the back side of the Cape. As the seas continued to build and the seas rose the conditions became more and more difficult for spotting *blows*.
Luckily, another whale watch boat was able to radio the location of a whale and we were able to get a look at a Finback. Soon after ,we spotted the blow of a Humpback and were treated to a series of tail breaches! Our passengers were elated after enduring a salt sprayed ride out!
