What Not to Do if You See a Whale

A jet skier in Australia has been fined $15,000 for his second trailing of a whale while on his jet ski. He is the second person in Australia fined for getting too close to a whale with personal watercraft.  A boater in western Canada was fined for doing the same in 2008.

Whale watch tour operators in MA have all undergone Whale Safe training and typically do an excellent job of abiding by all rules set forth for the industry. In fact, they will call authorities when they see any occurrences of individual boaters getting too close to whales or other marine mammals.
