That’s Bahstin Hahbah to you, pal.
Boston Globe reporter Steve Annear (a fellow Roger Williams alum!) tweeted on Tuesday that humpback whales had been seen in Boston Harbor. As a result of the sightings, the U.S. Coast Guard was urging mariners on Tuesday to be careful in the area. Apparently multiple people have reported seeing the whales splashing about in the harbor since the weekend.
“There’s a humpback whale in Boston Harbor.”

People were pretty excited about the sightings.
Have you heard the news? There’s a humpback whale in Boston Harbor! With recreational boats & shipping vessels, Head Naturalist Laura Howes is hopeful that it will return to safer waters soon. Its location has been reported to both the @uscoastguard & the @NEAQ rescue team. pic.twitter.com/YA7ujo43Cq

It’s worth noting that Annear seems to be Boston’s unofficial whale and marine life beat reporter — he’s the one who broke the “Baby Wheel” story. (Click the link to revisit that video. It’s peak Boston.)
