In the past week, there has been a frequent sighting of whales off the coast of Plymouth. There, a whale hit a fishing boat last Sunday.
Among the many fishing boats nearby, a whale was breached. A fan took pictures of the whale during the entrance. The whale seems to hit a boat and the bow falls into the water.
Two people on the boat are running forward and backward on the boat.
The area is a feeding and breaching area for Whale. Residents bring tourists to the area in hopes of catching marine animals and fish.
Most of the whales are humpbacks, measuring up to 55 feet and weighing 40 tons. According to Whale and Dolphin Conservation, a non-profit organization dedicated to whale conservation.
Photos from other scenes show the whales “feeding,” the group said. This is when the whales swallow a mouthful of fish and water and pass through the whales.
Suzanne O’Shea, a wildlife photographer, said she heard about the whale sighting recently. Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, she said, she grabbed her camera and went back to the beach.
She was there when a whale put on a concert for a group of people on a small boat. Hopefully you’ll get that image when it’s just clicked when it’s breached,” O’Shea said.

” I didn’t check that thing again right away, so I’m not sure if they’ll show up again. So I checked after a while. And I thought, ‘Oh my god, I got the picture.’
A week ago, a paddler reportedly had a close encounter with a whale off the coast of Manomet.
This thing came out of the water, it was like 25 bases in the air. It had fish flying in its mouth,” said rower Michael Manfredi. “It was amazing and unbelievable. It was one of those moments I will noway forget.”
The Whale and Dolphin Conservancy also says boaters should give the whales a buffer zone of at least 100 feet.
“Whales are often seen by fishermen who come here to catch fish. They want people to have fun while they’re in the area, but it’s important to do it safely.
The jumbos move sporadically as they try to catch fish. That’s why boaters in that area should be at least five boat lengths away.” About this, Monica Pepe. Whale and Dolphin Conservation’s Safe Policy Manager advises.
