  • A Closer Look at Humpback Whales

    Whale watching can be an exciting experience—not only for the sights, but also for the sounds. They are enjoyable to listen to, but no one knows why they do it. Watch this video for a look at humpback whales.

    Humpback whales make sounds that can travel for miles. They slap against the water with their massive bodies as well as “sing” with their larynxes. Whale songs sound like loud moans and squeals, and it is unclear what purpose they serve. Male humpback whales learn from other males and develop new sounds throughout their lives.

We offer Pollack fishing as well as flounder fishing, and our whale watching tours are always exciting. Feel free to visit our website or call us at (508) 927-5575 to find out more about our tours.

  • A Look at Whale Behavior

    Deep sea fishing may be the more active pursuit, but a whale watching excursion in Plymouth can still be very exciting. The waters off Cape Cod, especially near the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, offer some of the best whale watching in the country.

    Many species of whales, especially humpback whales, exhibit exciting behaviors such as jumping and tail slapping. To have a look at whale behaviors so you’ll know what to expect on your trip, watch this video.

  • A Guide to Ethical Whale Watching

    When you embark on a whale watching excursion near Plymouth, remember that these marine mammals are living creatures in their natural habitat. You should aim to disturb them as little as possible. Some species, such as the North Atlantic right whale, are actually endangered, and federal regulations limit how close a whale watching tour boat can come to them.

    It is very possible to have a wonderful whale watching experience while being ethical. In this video, you will learn how whale boat and fishing charter captains can offer you a good experience without disturbing the whales.

  • Up Close with Humpback Whales

    If you want to go whale watching, your best bet is to charter a boat. This is the safest and surest way to get as close as possible to the world’s largest marine mammals. The waters of Cape Cod just off the coast near Plymouth are often full of humpbacks, right whales, and other related species.

    Adult whales weigh many tons, so it’s important to keep a respectful distance from these creatures, especially since they like to jump out of the water and splash around with their massive tails and fins. Watch this video to see a hair-raisingly close encounter with a group of humpback whales.

    For a safe but still thrilling experience, call Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours at (508) 927-5587. We also offer chartered deep sea fishing excursions that depart from Plymouth.

  • Humpback Whales Feeding

    Between South America and Antarctica, the cold waters produce nutrients that feed billions of tiny krill, whose collective weight surpasses that of the human race. Humpback whales come down from the north to feast on upwards of 2 tons of krill each day. To round up the little fish, the humpbacks form air bubbles that pull the krill to the surface. The video talks more about the humpback/krill phenomenon.

    To learn more about humpbacks and to see them in their natural habitat, book a day trip with Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours .
