We started our trip expecting to see a few whales, take a few pictures, and freeze our butts off. All of these ended up coming true, however, we saw a LOT of whales, took a ton of pictures, and had such a great time we forgot we were freezing. We were on the final whale watch of the year, only a day or two before Hurricane Sandy hit the area. The Hurricane seemed to suck all the energy out of the air, which caused for an amazingly flat waters. The waters were so flat we were actually able to sport a blue shark at the surface and spend a few minutes observing it. After seeing that shark we saw a few whales on the horizon. We rushed to their location and after observing them for a while, the excitement of the crew started to hit the passengers, there were many whales in the area, we saw many humpbacks, a few Fin whales, and a hand full of minke whales. I was amazed how close the whales were to our boat, and how incredibly elegantly these giant animals can maneuver the seas. Thanks Cape Ann.
