Excerpt from a story on whale watching in Boston starting in the Boston Harbor and heading out to Stellwagen Bank . It was quite the year for spotting amazing whales.

After three attempts to venture out on a local whale watch that was canceled due to six feet swells I finally picked a perfect day at the beginning of the season in March. My early attempts were much too soon for spotting whales anyway. They weren’t quite back from their 2500-kilometer journey from the Silver Bank near the Dominican Republic where they breed, fast in the crystal clear waters, and give birth. We were on our way to the Stellwagen Bank, an underwater plateau at the mouth of the Massachusetts Bay that attracts a wealth of fish and thus an endless buffet for these marine mammals. Such is the order of the ocean.
