Day 6 Tue 7/28 Humpback Whales

We started sailing from Provincetown across to the central coast of Maine. A few hours out, we were in an area with a natural shelf from the 80 foot seafloor to several hundred feet, called stellwagen bank, and spotted a humpback whale. As we got closer, it’s pouted and then dove underneath the boat, to rise up and splash his tail right by the stern. Later two whales floated by us, nearly close enough to touch, quietly sunning on the surface of the water.
