You've heard about the Stellwagen Bank, but have no idea where it is and why it's special. The Stellwagen Bank is a National Maritime Sanctuary that lies roughly between the northern tip of Cape Cod and the southern end of Cape Ann, pretty well covering the entire entrance to Massachusetts Bay and Boston Harbor. The sanctuary encompasses 842 square miles and is the seasonal home to a large variety of sea life, including several endangered sea mammals. The Stellwagen Bank's website contains a map of the area and lots of educational information.
