The boats out of Dana Wharf Sportfishing &Whale Watching got a unique surprise on July 6. Instead of spotting blue and fin whales, who normally inhabit the waters outside the harbor, a humpback whale breached out of the water several times, allowing passengers to catch a glimpse of almost its entire body.

“It’s very rare for us,” Dana Wharf Sporfishing & Whale Watching general manager Donna Kalez said of the sighting. “We’ve never seen a (humpback) whale where you can see his eyes and everything.”
