Whale Watcher Cruises Opens Season With A Right Whale Showcase!

The North Atlantic Right Whales were so visibly abundant at one point during the first of the season voyage of the Whale Watcher Cruise that even the ship’s Naturalist, Jon Brink was impressed. “We’re seeing what only 1% of the world’s population will see here in Cape Cod Bay….there are 150-200 of the Right Whales in our area out of a total of 400 world-wide” he added. The Whale Watcher Cruises (269 Millway, Barnstable) leaves out of Barnstable Harbor, goes past Sandy Neck (a great photo shoot in itself,) and heads into Cape Cod Bay…Right Whale spouts were spotted almost immediately…eventually we headed towards Provincetown for more viewings of a Finback Whale, some Dolphins and a variety of birds, before returning back. It’s a bit chilly on the water, but it’s only going to get warmer…the whales are there…bring your camera-with a telephoto lens…it’s a fantastic experience…Enjoy!

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown. As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis. Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
