Naturalist Notebook

Naturalist’s Notebook – August 20, 2016 to August 26, 2016

This week, the numbers of finback whales between Race Point and the Station have continued to increase.  They have continued to feed, sometimes lunging at the surface and sometimes beneath it.  But their dispersal has been evolving.  At first, most of the finbacks were moving around on their own, but as the weeks have progressed, […]

Naturalist’s Notebook – August 13, 2016 to August 19, 2016

I think the best way to describe the week’s whalewatching, this week, is to tell you about a couple of the trips I was the naturalist on.  Let’s start with Saturday morning, August 13. The day starts sunny and bright.  There is a light breeze but the air is warm.  The water in the harbor […]

Naturalist’s Notebook – August 06, 2016 to August 12, 2016

On Saturday, August 6, we were, alas, unable to repeat the experiment from the past two weeks.  That was because the finback whales were far closer in than they have been.  We started seeing finwhales off the Herring Cove bathhouse.  It was so early in the trip, in fact, that I had to explain to […]

Naturalist’s Notebook – July 30, 2016 to August 05, 2016

This week, I overheard some passengers asking if they could get tickets to go on the Dolphin VII.  They were told by the ticket person that they didn’t want to go on “that boat” because it is such a “little boat.”  The Dolphin VII is ten feet shorter than the other boats.  That is true.  […]

Naturalist’s Notebook – July 23, 2016 to July 29, 2016

“Amazing”, “Crazy”,  “Fabulous”, “Spectacular”, “Wonderful”, and “Extravagant” were some of the words used by Dolphin Fleet naturalists to describe the sightings of  feeding whales this week. On July 23, Mike described the surfacing of a group of five finback whales that were feeding beneath the surface as “what a way to end the day!”  Though […]
