Whale watching at Cape Ann in Gloucester

After spending the morning visiting Gloucester and its fishing port, we arrived at the scheduled time to the place from where our ship sailed to make the whale watching excursion.

He Hurricane II It had a length of 115 meters and a capacity of about 300/400 people, as I could calculate. After boarding, it had an expected duration of about four hours.

The ship departed on time and we spent some time navigating inside the beautiful Gloucester natural harbor, and then we had to make a great tour until we could see the whales.


Boat for whale watching excursion at Cape Ann in Gloucester

This new day of our coast to coast travel in the United States He offered us an indescribable day, totally sunny, with the flat sea as a raft.

The Whales that we saw were in a group of 3 to 5 copies, that when we approached with the boat they made a couple of strong inspirations and expirations, with the typical water spout, and placing themselves in an upright position, they submerged themselves using the well-known shot that we all photographed between Oh s!!! of admiration. oh !!!

Although in other circumstances these cetaceans may not be breathing for many more minutes, within 3 or 4 minutes they would reappear more or less near where they had sunk. For an hour and a half we were approaching the groups of whales that were appearing everywhere.

The truth is that we reached see many whales, sometimes closer to the ship, sometimes a little further. It was curious to see so many people enjoying the whales as if it were a sporting, musical show or an amusement park.

Little by little, the sun was going down the horizon, which gave us new excuses to continue photographing the whales, now backlit, taking advantage of the sea's brightness.


Excursion to see whales in Cape Ann in Gloucester

We begin the return to the port, which lasted almost two hours. The entrance to it was also beautiful. The sun had given us for many hours, that is, we came out a little more tanned than we entered.

In the end the excursion had lasted about six hours from the ship's departure, two hours more than planned. The company we hired to go see the whales guaranteed that we would see them, and if there were not, they would give us a year to repeat the trip for free.

After disembarking, we walked a few minutes through the store where there was a variety of whale-related souvenirs

As there was still daylight, we took a car ride along the coast north of Gloucester, where we could stop in front of a rocky beach and admire the sunset. We did not applaud but it was to applaud this gentle nature for a long time.

Then, satisfied, with our soul at peace, we returned to dinner at the hotel room, where we returned to see the photos we had taken, and from where we connected via internet with the rest of the world.

It has made us sunny !! Wonderful.
