    I've been daydreaming about a Beluga encounter after TWO news reports that they're in Massachusetts waters (same one, maybe?)! How incredible would it be to be visited by one of these guys on a dive? I've heard a few stories (on facebook) from New England divers who have had very friendly run-ins with these gentle giants.

    Beluga sighted in Gloucester 6/22/14

    Beluga sighted in Taunton River 6/25/14

    Anyone run into one in New England waters?

    Yes, I had one join me for 2 scallop dives off Salem, Ma in 2004. I was going to link my story/pictures but my website seems to be down.

    This happened in 2004, the year before we got SCUBA certified. Priceless!

    That is the whale i dove with. When i got back to shore after the dive, I called the NE Aquarium to report it and sent pictures. They told me all about him which made the dive even more memorable. Sad that he died alone.

    That would be just amazing. Very jealous of your encounters!

    I saw what looked like a dead dolphin at Cathedral Rocks last Sunday.
