   Local whale watchers got a rare glimplse of a group of sperm whales when the mammoth deep ocean divers made famous by Herman Melville's Moby Dick were spotted in the Bay of Fundy recently. Two boats carrying whale watchers initially spotted the whales on June 21 at the mouth of the bay. No sperm whales have been seen in the bay in nearly 10 years and they almost never venture into waters so shallow, said Shelley Barnaby, chief naturalist with Brier Island Whale and Seabird Cruises in Westport, N.S., who was on the boat for the first sighting. "We were quite shocked," she said.
