A humpback whale breached onto a small boat off a Plymouth beach Sunday morning, another close encounter between whales and humans as sightings of the giants surge in the area. The whale breached and landed on the bow of a 19-foot vessel off White Horse Beach at about 10 a.m. on Sunday. A Plymouth Harbormaster boat responded to check on the boaters, and the operator reported no injuries along with no major damage to the vessel. The boaters then safely brought the vessel back to the Plymouth Boat Ramp.
