Conservationists and Tourists Go On a Whale Watching Adventure in Bar Harbor, Maine

We follow the Atlantic whale migration trail to Bar Harbor.

We travel up north to visit Bar Harbor, Maine, near Acadia National Park, and it's a beautiful day to take a boat out for whale watching.

A naturalist from Bar Harbor Whale Watch tells us how whales came to be so abundant in the area. It turns out that a current stemming from Nova Scotia rushes to Maine and produces a large number of plankton for whales to feed on.

Whale watching is not just for sightseeing. Scientists observe and document environmental and ocean patterns. As for tracking whales, they follow them by recognizing the different tails.
