We went whale watching today with some friends up North in Gloucester, MA (pronounced GLAH-stur). I honestly was not expecting to see anything, and at the very most to see a spurt of water from their air hole. However, we came upon a group of 4 humpback whales that were breaching (jumping in the air) and slapping their fins on the water. As we got closer they stopped doing this, but we were able to watch them swim and fluke their tails for about 45 minutes. It was amazing! I highly recommend going whale watching (however we did get it for half price, so it was even more worth it).
