Join us aboard an offshore power catamaran with Capt. John T. Pirie on a private tour available only to Hunt’s Photo Education attendees. We plan to immerse you in the cetacean feeding frenzy that occurs each Spring as these hungry giants return from their long migration and 4 month fasting period. One can expect to see a variety of cetaceans, birds and occasionally fish such as tuna and sharks. Whales such as Humpback, Minke, Finback, and the endangered Right Whale frequent the Cape Ann waters during the Spring migration. We often see large schools of Atlantic White-Sided Dolphins who are always willing to come play around the boat. The shy Harbor Porpoise may be sighted as well as seals and a large variety of pelagic birdlife.
We will depart from Cape Ann Marina onboard the “Orca”– a 26’ twin engine custom-built catamaran. We will spend 6 hours at sea during prime light and viewing hours. The trips will be limited to 6 photographers so that your experience is both intimate and personalized. You will have the opportunity to practice and improve your photography skills while enjoying a remarkable experience amongst feeding cetaceans.
More details, including what to bring and what to expect, are listed below.
If you are attending this workshop, we will send out more specific instructions to you a few days prior to the workshop. However, be advised we will be meeting at Cape Ann Marina in Gloucester, MA at the time listed. Please note: Some slight details above can be subject to change. This email will detail any of those minor changes.
