- See magnificent whales up-close
- Fast catamaran gets you out to see quickly
- Professional marine researchers aboard every trip
barely seen whale surface. 4 hours cruise but once we got there only 2 whales barely surfaced. Way too expensive knowing there is a chance you will not see anything
The waters off Boston are a popular feeding and breeding territory for several species of whale, including humpbacks, minkes, pilot whales and the critically endangered right whales. Seeing these immense creatures in their natural habitat, exhibiting typical behaviors, is a breathtaking and life-affirming experience, and this tour lets you get a superb view, with three outside decks available as well as comfortable seating indoors. It’s also common to see white-sided dolphins here, which can make for a nice bonus.
In our opinion though, what makes this Boston gift experience really stand out is that every voyage is accompanied by marine researchers from the Whale Center of New England. Got a question about whales? These guys will be able to answer it. See whales breach the waves, spurt vast quantities of water from their blowholes and flick their powerful tails as they dive - utterly mindblowing. This sustainable, whale-friendly sailing trip uses a fast catamaran too, allowing you to spend the maximum time alongside the whales.
