Latham Students Attend Plymouth Whale Watch

Six students and two staff braved the elements on a chilly Cinco de Mayo and rode on the Tails of the Sea out to Stellwagen Bank in Cape Cod Bay to see the whales. The day was not promising and we did not think we would see many whales. As it turns out we must have encountered a bunch of Hispanic whales celebrating the day, breaching and broaching their way in a feeding frenzy.  The kids loved all the action and were extremely well behaved and courteous to others.  It was obvious the whales, (humpbacks and Minke) did not enjoy food security as they feasted their way in green, bubbled water, with tons of gulls following their every move.  Poor Jake’s legs were as blue as the water.  Little did he know that he would be spending his day on the high seas.
