on a whale watch 20 miles east of boston ma. u.s.a.
Time and money prevent it at the moment..but it is on the list of to do's.
Not hard to do Heather!
This trip is on my bucket list...
Oh so lucky!!!! The perfect combination calm uncrowded and plenty of reason to run from side to side. Can't get over how bath tub like this mouth is. Tempted to dive in... well if it weren't so cold and about to close
Gale we left from gloucester that day the ocean was as smooth as a pond there were only a dozen people on the boat so we could run from one side to the other
Tom looks like you are on or a little north of Stellwagen bank. Did you leave from Gloucester or Provincetown?
Oh neat Tom. It looks like a fun trip. My "locations" get messed up sometimes too.
i think i fixed the map
heather we were on the atlantic ocean
Huh! Check your map again I think you might have put it in the wrong on the google map
Its Pacific @Heather
I'm a little confused. Is the note, or the location wrong? This is an awesome picture, but is it Atlantic or Pacific? I know my location entries get messed up sometimes when I tab to a new field...but not usually the other side of the world.
Yep,I noticed,but I though you were near some island like Mariana's or something,I guess my doubt is that if you were in a boat trip. Is just really cool that you were in a remote place and able to see this beauty! :) Thanks
A Spectacular sighting.. Just Awesome! Looking closely, one can see some of the fish fry in the gaping mouth..
we were on a whalewatch cruise off the coast of boston ma. u.s.a. i don't think we went to japan that day .thanks for the comments.
Tom would you like to add this photo to Marine Mammals of the world? http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/6544...
K.c. Tryax...If you zoom out on the google map you will see it was SE of Japan.
Awesome pic! where was the pic taken?
Wow. Impressive picture. I loved beeing there in that moment.
Just checked... off Japan?!?! Wonder if it was effected by the volcano, the tsunami and now nuclear runoff?
Where was this whale photographed? Do you know about http://www.coa.edu/html/nahc.htm ... they have the catalog for all the North Atlantic Humpback whales... Individuals are recognized by the patterns on the ventral side of their fluke, there are whales that have been followed since the late 1970's (some females are great grandmothers).
