Cape Ann Whale
Watch, through with the Ocean
Alliance�s CETA program (Cetacean Education Through Awareness), is the only
whale watch company in the Northeast to feature a comprehensive educational
program completely integrated into the whale watch.
Throughout the trip, on both the ride out to whales and the ride back in to
Gloucester our on-board educators will provide hands-on learning tools for both
children and adults alike to learn more about the whales they will be seeing
during the trip, their ocean environment, and about some of the
face. In addition to providing something for both children and adults to do on
the ride to and from the whales, this gives everyone on board the opportunity to
take advantage of the unique educational opportunity
that a whale watch provides. We believe that education is
the key to
conservation, and that the fate of whales and their environment lies largely in
the hands of our passengers. Hopefully the education in combination with the
wonderful experience of seeing a whale in the wild will instill awe in our
passengers and encourage many people to want to work to preserve whales for
future generations of whale-watchers.
Both the education and the commentary on our trips
are based on three primary themes:
Whales are amazing animals
- Whales are dependent on other life in the oceans
- Whales are an indicator of the overall health of the
Some of our learning tools include:
Whale baleen and teeth, to learn about the
ways in which different types of whales feed.
A 3-D model of Stellwagen Bank, to learn
about where the whales are found and
why they are there.
A CD containing the songs of the humpback whales,
to learn about one of the most amazing and unique features of humpbacks.
