Annual Earthday Whale Watch this Saturday

Please help spread the word about our annual fund-raising whale watch trip this coming Saturday (May 5) from 9 to 4.

Last year’s trip was our best ever, with sunshine, flat calm seas, over 40 surface-feeding humpback whales, over ten feeding North Atlantic right whales, more than 20 fin whales, and hundreds of dolphins throughout the day. This was the kick-off to a tremendous season that lasted throughout 2006. We’re hoping to have a similar kick-off in 2007, and a repeat of the activity on this year’s trip!

As in past years Chief Scientist, Mason Weinrich will lead the trip. Mason has been with the Whale Center for over 25 years, and will draw upon his varied experiences and familiarity with New England’s humpbacks. You will have a day during which you will see great whale activity and learn a lot about the whales we study.

The trip costs $50 for Whale Center members ($60 for non members); $40 for all children under age 12. You can join when you make your reservation and get the member price for the cruise. We will provide free hot drinks; there will be a full galley on board if you choose not to bring lunch. The large cabin on the vessel will provide ample cover from the cold, but we suggest you dress warmly!

To make reservations for the Earth Day Whale Watch, please call our office at 978-281-6351 or e-mail us at Space is limited, so make your reservations early. We look forward to seeing you on May 5th!
