A whale hit a fishing boat off the coast of Plymouth, Massachusetts on Sunday in an area where whales have been spotted several times over the past week. The whale landed on one of the boats, causing the bow to plunge into the water. Two people on the boat braced themselves as the boat tipped forward and backward. Plymouth officials posted a photo of the boat showing the damage. The harbor master’s boat assigned to the area to look into possible marine mammal violations responded to check the ship’s occupants. The operator reported no injuries and no major damage affecting the boat’s seaworthiness, officials said. “The Plymouth Harbor Master’s Department recommends a distance of at least 100 meters to minimize potential interactions with whales. This interaction, while rare, is a reminder that these interactions can be dangerous for both boaters and whales,” officials posted. from Plymouth on Facebook. The environmental police is investigating the incident. Whales feeding and breaching in the area have brought residents and tourists to the area in hopes of catching a glimpse of the marine life. Most of the whales sighted are humpback whales, which can measure up to 55 feet and weigh 40 tons, according to the Whale & Dolphin Conservation, a nonprofit group dedicated to whale conservation. Photos from other sightings show the whales “falling out,” the group said, which is when the whales round up baitfish and dive through them to swallow a mouthful of fish and water. Wildlife photographer Suzanne O’Shea said she had heard about the recent whale sightings. She said she grabbed her camera and headed to the shore on Tuesday evening and again at daybreak on Wednesday morning. She was there when a whale put on a show for a group of people aboard a small boat. I hope you get that photo,” O’Shea said. “I didn’t check right away because then you won’t if they break again. So I checked a little later. And I was like, ‘Oh my god, I’ve got the picture!'” One week ago, a paddleboarder had a close encounter with a whale at Manomet. “The thing comes out of the water, the thing is about 25 feet in the air, there’s fish flying out of his mouth,” said paddleboarder Michael Manfredi. “It’s just amazing, it’s unbelievable. It’s just one of those moments you’ll never forget.” The Whale & Dolphin Conservation said boaters should give whales a buffer zone off the coast and want people to enjoy it while they’re here, but it’s important they do it safely. The whales move sporadically while trying to catch fish, so boat operators in the area need to be proactive and make sure they are at least five boat lengths away,” said Monica Pepe, WDC’s Safe Boating Policy Manager.

Damage to a boat after a whale broke through and landed off the coast of Plymouth.
