What You Can Expect

Boston Whale Watching Cruise

Boston Whale Watching Cruise

You'll visit Stellwagen Bank, the East Coast's most famous whale watching destination. Stellwagen's heavy concentration of humpback, finback, and minke whales guarantees an adventure filled with opportunities to view and learn about whales as they frolic in their natural habitat.

Each Boston Whale Watching Cruise is narrated and guided by a naturalist from the noted Whale Center of New England (WCNE). The WCNE has been studying the whales of New England for more than 20 years and its members are recognized worldwide as authorities on whales.

One of the whales you're likely to spot during a Boston Whale Watching Cruise is the humpback. These Northern hemisphere humpbacks reach an average length of 50 feet, and a weight of about 37 tons! Sadly, they're also among the most endangered, and its estimated that only 8 percent of their original population remains.

With the data collected on each cruise, WCNE is able to further the understanding of whales and their world. And, their presence on board ensures that your whale watch will be an exciting and educational trip.

Whale sightings on every whale watch. If you do not see a whale on your trip, you will receive a free ticket for a future Boston Whale Watching Cruise.

The catamarans feature 3 outside decks for optimum viewing capability. Inside you will find climate controlled cabin space with cushioned seating, tables, state-of-the-art audio-visual, and a galley offering snacks and beverages for purchase.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Great cruise, we were so lucky we met several minke whales and seals but most of all 7 humpback whales in total, alone or in small groups, mostly mother and calf with another female. The staff was quite experienced in spotting the whales and pointing them to us and also recognizing them by the tail, so calling them by name and explaining a little af what is know of each individual.
We could see them swimming close to the surface for breathing and then diving looking for food showing their tails, unforgettable experience.
What I also liked is that all this was done paying attention at minimizing the impact on the animals, keeping distance and using a waterjet propelled boat.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

An amazing experience, even though it was quite cold. Several whales spotted and they were magnificent... A couple were quite close to the boat and thus able to appreciate how big they are. Would definitely do it again and recommend to anyone visiting Boston.
