Whales at Cape Cod

An excellent whale show continues at Cape Cod, visible from shore.  On 24 April, Sean Williams and I had 7 species of cetacean from Race Point Beach, highlighted by 8-10 Northern Right Whales, the closest of which was less than 100 feet off the beach.  Federal regulations prevent whale-watching boats from intentionally approaching within 500 yards, so this is a unique viewing opportunity (also, the beach is much better for scoping–we got great looks at the baleen plates!).  Additionally, we had multiple individuals of each of: Humpback (1 breaching), Fin, and Minke Whales; Pilot Whale (presumed Long-finned by location); Atlantic White-sided Dolphin; and Harbor Porpoise.

 

Cheers

    I’m tempted to go there in the next few days; it’s just 12 hours driving time 🙂
