    Belugas!

    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.
    Eagerness does not always equate to ability but it sure makes rescuing you interesting .

    I have a perfect record of never having left anyone at sea ...accidentally

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

    My ever growing collection of assorted ramblings on scuba topics can be read here.

    No sequence of classes will make a good diver out of you, if you aren't actively diving and practicing in the meantime.

    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.
