With just 40 miles of coastline, it may seem surprising that Rhode Island is “The Ocean State”—that is until you spend just a few hours on a boat.
Minke whales, humpback whales, Atlantic spinner dolphins, basking sharks, and mola mola are all frequent visitors to the Rhode Island coast. But when the calendar flips to June, it’s all about the summertime blues.
Just a two hour-drive north of New York City, underwater photographers have the opportunity to mingle with dozens of graceful blue sharks (Prionace glauca). Reaching up to 12 feet in length as adults, the blues are curious creatures, often touching their lengthened noses to the reflective dome port of the camera. It is simply a must for any underwater photographer in the Eastern United States… or any shark photographer, for that matter.
