B. MacLean took lots of photos on a whale-watching cruise to Stellwagen Bank the other day.

Thanks for the comment! I did mean to get a flukey fluke shot :)
Anyone know . . .
. . . the chances of seeing whales on one of these tours? I've always wanted to do a whale watch tour but I don't want to end up just seeing miles of blue ocean and no whales. How common or rare is it to see whales on such tours?
Largely a matter of luck
Usually one sees at least some whales (maybe only at a distance -- but there is no guarantee. We once went on a whale watch along the most whale-populated stretch of the St. Lawrence (north of Quebec) -- and saw nothing at all. We had better luck here -- and had a pair of whales diving under our boat and back -- and breathing their very stinky whale breath right at us. ;~}
I've been out on the Aquarium's whale tour boat three times over many years and saw whales each time, albeit only once up close. The other two times they were at a distance (closest maybe 75 yards) and so it was cool but not incredible. Taking the ferry down to P-Town I've seen dolphins bounding alongside the boat and whales (at a distance). Then got to hang out and have something to eat in P-Town and see more wildlife on the ride back (not to mention the wildlife in P-Town).
