What You Can Expect
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 a fantastic day out in search of the humpbacks and what a surprise we got when we came across 4 or five of them, all breaching and doing their thing! The crew on board were extremely knowledgeable and no question was too much for them. It was a pretty cold day on 20 Oct and the boat goes at quite a speed ... very exciting. We stayed on top for a while but then ventured inside to keep warm. Take hat, gloves and wear body warmers. My husband had his GPS on the whole time and we did a 99 mile round trip! All in all a fabulous day and amazing breaching whales who gave us all a wonderful show.
Smooth tour and saw a number of whales which was great.
Difficult to hear the commentary on the outside deck.
This is a must see for anyone who wants to be amazed. We saw at least ten whales. Don't miss thi great deal.
We took the noon tour on October 7th. It was a bit crowded but I think most everyone who wanted to got a chance at the rail and exciting views of at least a dozen or so humpback whales. Lots of fluke action and the crew provides interesting facts about the whales, most of whom they know by name and characteristics.
Stupendous trip!!!Five whales with lots of breaching and tale slapping. My trip was very rocky with lots of motion sick people and the staff was just fabulous with everyone.
I would advise making sure to take a motion sickness pill before you go just in case so you can enjoy the trip. The company handled everything from tickets to the cruise itself perfectly. Thanks for making my trip!!
Fantastic trip all round the whales were all around the boat on a beutiful October day the whole trip is highly recommended .
One of the best sightings of the season. Saw a steady group of 10-12 whales close to the boat diving and feeding. It was awesome! At least 20 whales off in the distance blowing mist. The crew was adorable, enthusiastic and sounded very knowledgable about the whales we were seeing. Would definitely recommend!! Definitely the highlight of our son's visit!
Great trip, though I wish there were a bit fewer people. The crew was very knowledgeable and we saw whales! These Viator tours and so simple to book and great to have these awesome tours planned in advance.
Amazing views - saw a bunch of whales. Our guide was very knowledgable and was thrilled with the number of whales we got to see! Bring a hat and a jacket - very fast boat and it's windy out there! We were gone longer than the 3 hours because we couldn't pull away from the whales! My family of 5 would recommend this highly. P.S. Arrive at least 45 min ahead of time to get a good spot in line - you'll get first pick of spots on the boat.
Apart from the choppy waters, which couldn't be helped, this tour was brilliant. Saw lots of whales so close to the boat.
