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.

We had an exciting cruise! We watched 2 humpback whales, Nile and Pitcher, for 30 minutes or so as they surfaced to take in air and then descended to feed. It was fascinating to be so close to these huge and impressive animals. Our tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and provided excellent insight into this fascinating species!

Got to the harbour early and they allowed us to go on the earlier trip. Out on the water for over three hours and saw six whales. Lovely views of Boston on our return into the harbour.

We saw about 20 whales on this trip. It was an amazing experience. The tour guides on board were very knowledgeable and made sure everyone on the boat could see the whales by slowly turning the boat side to side. Would definitely recommend this tour.

We had a fabulous time. The weather was great and the seas calm. My English cousins had never seen a whale. We were all thrilled to see about 5 humpbacks and two seals. Three of the whales were hanging together showing lots of flippers and tails. We stayed out about 4 and half hours. Very well worth it.
