Join this 3-hour cruise for the opportunity to spot whales off the coast of Boston. See these magnificent creatures close-up from the deck of your ship. Spot Humpback and Finback whales and see White Sided Dolphins frolicking in the waters.
What to Expect
Our high-speed catamarans are the fastest, most comfortable way to view the ocean's most fascinating and magnificent creatures. Getting you to and from the whales in less time means you get to spend more time actually watching them.
Our catamarans feature 3 outside decks for optimum viewing capability. Inside you'll find climate-controlled cabin space with cushioned seating, tables, state-of-the-art sound and video systems, and a galley offering snacks and beverages for purchase.
Professional researchers from the Whale Center of New England, the region's foremost authority on whale populations, are onboard for every trip to provide narration. Want to feel what it's like to join them?
Get the chance to see:
The humpback’s name comes from the way its back arches out of the water when preparing for a deep dive. “Megaptera” is its true scientific name which means “large-winged,” in reference to its long flippers.
Finbacks are second only to Blue Whales in overall size, measuring in at 45-70 feet in length and weighing approximately 40 tons as full-grown adults.
A sleek, small dolphin-like baleen whale, Minkes are the most abundant whale in the world today with a population numbering well over one million worldwide.
White Sided Dolphins
Found only in the North Atlantic, in waters just south of New England north to Norway, these playful mammals feed on single prey such as squid, unlike whales that feast on large numbers of small fish.
