Boaters in Cape Cod Bay are being urged to use caution after 14 right whales, including 5 mother-and-calf pairs, were spotted on Thursday, April 21, about 2 miles from shore between Plymouth and Sandwich.

The MA Division of Marine Fisheries is asking boaters to voluntarily reduce speeds in the area to less than 10 knots and to post lookouts.
