Those Summertime Blues
By Joseph Tepper, June 25, 2014 @ 09:06 AM (EST)

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.

Oh, and did we mention there are mako sharks too? For more information on these expeditions, contact Brian Raymond at pelagicexpeditions@gmail.com or visit the Pelagic Expedition website.
