We, at Shearwater, have been involved with many fine research organizations over the years to further the studies of Seals, Whales, Birds, Scallops, and other Coastal Projects. Some of our ongoing research includes helping Whale and Dolphin Conservation identify and catalogue Humpback Whales off Nantucket, which is out of their study area. Interns identified many Humpbacks which would not have shown in their northern database without access to our whaling grounds.
Here is a link to a PDF showing this work for the 2015 Season for the Whale & Dolphin Conservation.
Our vessels are always available for hire to any research organization wanting to collect data in the area. We are proud to list these research organizations we have worked with below.
