Crow's Nest Looking Aft

Crow's Nest Looking Aft

During all daylight hours while underway, it is necessary to post visual observers whose responsibility is to locate and keep track of whales at the surface. At 72 feet off the water, the visual range from the crow's nest to the horizon is about 10 nautical miles, maximizing the area of detection around the ship.
