Whale Watch Cruise

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 off 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 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.
