Humpback whale excursion

August 11, 2013

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of taking part in an all day whale-watch excursion organized by NECWA. NECWA is a non-profit organization based in south-eastern Massachusetts, dedicated to the protection and conservation of  the marine wildlife in the coastal waters. Twice a year they offer a wonderful all day tour to observe seabirds and whales.

After a rainy and stormy week we ended up with a beautiful day and pretty calm waters. About 3 hours into our trip we hit the jackpot! Whales were bubble feeding all around our boat. An amazing sight! Here are just a few images of a wonderful day on the ocean off Cape Cod. (you can click on each image for a larger view)
