SEA Currents: SSV Robert C. Seamans
August 06, 2018
Today we went on the Plymouth Whale Watch. While boating out to the shelf, where whales usually to go get food, we saw a calf and her mother. The mom's name was Venom and was nursing the baby whale, Diad. It was cool to see real life things that we had been learning in the classroom. We saw two humpback whales with their babies and a minke whale. The second humpback whale we saw was hunting small fish and it was interesting to see how the whales use their baleen to filter feed. Overall, the whale watch was an fun and educational trip where we learned a lot about whales and their history.
