Looking for a whale watch that requires less travel time, offers the most comfortable ride available and gives you more time viewing some of the world's most magnificent creatures? Look no further!

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.

What a fantastic excursion. Definitely one for the bucket list for all animal lovers. This was my main reason for visiting Boston last year and I was absolutely made up to see around 20 whales on my day out. The staff were extremely friendly, enthusiastic and helpful.
This is a memorable experience, not to be missed!

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.
