We took our family of seven on the Whale Watch Dophin Fleet yesterday. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The events were narrated by a young woman who is getting her PhD in Oceanology/Whales (some more specific topic which I can't recall) and she was excellent. She pointed out many things we would otherwise have missed (tuna, dolphins, sea birds, etc.) Of course, the hope of the trip was to see some whales and we certainly did! Our first sighting was a pod of seven humpback whales which included a calf. Each time the pod surfaced, the crew brought the boat gently right up close. Several times a whale swam right under the bow of the boat. We stayed in that area and watched them surfaced about 5-6 times. Each time they dive down for about 10-15 minutes and then come back up. We then went to another area and found two more whales. The whole time, the guide was telling us information about the whales, their migration, their mating habits, what/how they eat, how they give birth & raise their young, etc. The boat ride itself was relaxing and pleasant. It did get chilly and I was glad to have a jacket to put on. Best place to see the action was at the front of the boat where you could sight the whales on either side of the boat. All in all, it will be the highlight of our week in Cape Cod. Expensive, but I'm very glad we decided to do it.
