Boston-whale watching

We went whale watching while in Boston. Wasn't sure if we would really get a good show...lucky for us, it rocked! We saw at least 20 different whales. They migrate to this area from Bermuda during April and stay until October. 26 miles off the coast there is a plateau 600 ft. under water. It is just shallow enough that lots of plants can grow there attracting fish. The plateau is 26 miles long and 2 miles wide. Over 11,000 thousand whales migrate here for summer feeding and during this time they will gain between 10,000 and 12,000 pounds...that is an insane amount of weight!! I was totally stoked about this, I have always been fascinated with whales and seeing them in the wild was amazing.
