Boston Whale Watching Cruise

Boston Whale Watching Cruise

Beginning at Central Wharf in Boston, hop aboard a high-speed catamaran and embark on a 3-hour whale-watching cruise to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, a 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 naturalist from the Whale Center of New England. They will share their knowledge about the animals’ behaviors, conservation status, scientific tracking and more.

In 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.
