Tour Details

Don't miss this exciting Boston whale watching tour in a high-speed catamaran!

Whales cruise off the New England coast from April to November, gathering at the major feeding grounds of the Massachusetts coast. These huge mammals reach more than 65 feet in length. Even a fleeting glimpse is a thrilling and very memorable experience. Among the species that can be seen are finback, humpback, minke and right whales. These Northern hemisphere humpbacks reach an average weight of about 37 tons and are among the most endangered. It is estimated that only eight percent of their original population remains.

The high-speed catamarans used for this tour are the fastest, most comfortable way to view the ocean's most fascinating and magnificent creatures. Getting you to and from the whales in less time means you get to spend more time actually watching them. The awe-inspiring sight of these majestic, giant creatures breaching and spouting nearby is more than exciting. The World Wildlife Fund named Massachusetts as one of the world's top ten whale-watching spots.

Set sail for the whale watch experience of a lifetime. Your destination: Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary, a rich feeding ground for whales, dolphins, sea birds and other marine creatures. You’ll have a good chance to view several different species of large whales, including humpbacks, finbacks, minkes, pilot whales, and the critically endangered right whales. On this tour, you may also see white sided dolphins, which are found only in the North Atlantic. You’ll learn about these amazing creatures from New England Aquarium naturalists who are always on board to share knowledge, answer your questions and explain the mind-blowing behaviors of these truly magnificent mammals.

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

Professional researchers from the Whale Center of New England, the region's foremost authority on whale populations, are onboard for every trip to provide narration. Want to feel what it's like to join them? Then this is the tour for you!
