Cape Ann Whale Watch
For more than three decades, Cape Ann Whale Watch has escorted spectators fascinated by the sea's magnificent giants on three- to four-hour treks 15 miles off the Gloucester coast. Passengers on the 115-foot professionally piloted Hurricane II can witness the natural grace of humpback whales, finback whales, dolphins, and pirates disguised as mermaids cavorting in the depths. In the course of the approximately 60-mile circuit, a member of Planet Whale narrates excursions, illumining the sight of each water dweller by discussing why whales breach, how to recognize individual humpbacks, and various feeding styles.

The cruise is at 1:30, Google thinks that it will take about four hours to get to Glouchester/Cape Ann from the Albany area. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I'm posting this super-early because right now (Feb 12) there is a Groupon for half-off adult tickets for the whale watch.
