The blow of the Humpbacks!

Whale watching at the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.

 

Well, It was an awesome experience. First the High Speed Catamarans speeding at 40 knots was a special little experience in itself.

 

And then these humpbacks were very co-operative. We saw close to 10 of them within a short span of like 30-40 min. They dived and breathed a lot. But the only gripe is they didn't breach! That would have been a GREAT catch! Apparently, they do it very often only around the breeding season. Unfortunately, they migrate to the Caribbean during that time!
