Boston Super Saver: Whale-Watching Cruise plus Admission to New England Aquarium

Boston Whale Watching Cruise and Admission to New England Aquarium

Beginning at Central Wharf in Boston, hop on a high-speed catamaran and embark on a 3-hour whale-watching cruise to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, an 842-square-mile stretch of open water at the mouth of Massachusetts Bay that serves as a rich feeding ground for whales, dolphins, sea birds and more.

From the ship’s three outdoor decks, view humpback, fin, minke and pilot whales, plus Atlantic white-sided dolphins, harbour porpoises and more with the help of a trained naturalist. Between whale sightings, relax in the comfortable, climate-controlled indoor cabin, which features state-of-the-art sound and video systems, the New England Aquarium Education Station and a galley offering food and beverages for purchase.

This Boston Super Saver also includes admission to the world-renowned New England Aquarium. Informative and entertaining live animal presentations happen here every day, allowing visitors to get up close and personal with their favorite aquatic animals. Watch fur seals interact with their trainers. See sea stars, sea urchins, sea lions and sea dragons, not to mention snails, hermit crabs, horseshoe crabs, shorebirds, lobsters, goosefish, octopus, piranhas, anacondas, salmon and many more.

The largest “touch tank” on the East Coast features more than 100 animals, including cownose rays, Atlantic Rays and sharks, and the centerpiece exhibit, a cylindrical 200,000-gallon Giant Ocean Tank featuring turtles, sharks, eels, stingrays, tarpon and many more.

Whale watching was all we expected. We even got to see a cow and her calf. The calf came alongside the boat before Mamma, who was a little shy, but baby put on quite the show.

The aquarium was wonderful, we were there for a quick 4 hours. It didn't seem that long as we were all very engrossed in all the exhibits. We advise anyone visiting to follow the outside path climbing up to the top, then come down around the central core where all the varieties of sea life can be seen. This is one stop not to be missed.

The tour was fun and informative. There were a couple of biologists roaming the boat to answer questions and chat about the whales. We saw 3 finback whales on our tour. They were amazing! The kids loved it!
I would recommend sea sickness pills though...

Great tour and value for a three+ hour whale watching trip and ticket to the aquarium. You save alot of money by booking his way, rather than straight through he museum. The aquarium ticket is good for 48 hours so you do not have to do both the same day!

Cold and rainy day,but was able to see plenty of whales. Very exciting and fun experience!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

We had a fantastic trip and were very entertained by the whales at close quarters for about 2 hours. The staff were very informed and caring, however, if you are hard of hearing you may not be able to hear the commentary when the boat is moving, which is a shame as the information was excellent.
We also had a double ticket for the aquarium and this was also a really good experience. A whole day of whale watching and the aquarium was fantastic and great value for money
