“What a brilliant experience, would definately do it again. We saw 12-15 humpback whales, the sea was dead calm and the sun shone the whole trip. The narration from the aquarium guides was first rate. Could have spent the whole day out watching wish we had booked a second cruise while we were there. ...Phillip S., United Kingdom – See more reviews
What To Expect
Boston Harbor Cruises' high-speed catamarans 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 to spend more time actually watching them.
Our destination is Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, a rich feeding ground for whales, dolphins, sea birds and other marine life. This area is home to several kinds of large whales, including humpback whales, finback whales, minke whales, as well as pilot whales and the critically endangered right whales. White-sided dolphins may also put in an appearance.
Our catamarans feature 3 outside decks for optimum viewing. Inside you'll find climate-controlled cabin space with cushioned seating, tables, state-of-the-art sound and video systems, a New England Aquarium Education Station, and a galley offering food and beverages for purchase.
In addition to providing great whale watching, our catamarans also come equipped with naturalists trained by the New England Aquarium. They'll share their knowledge about the behavior, conservation status and migration patterns of whales, dolphins and sea birds. You'll learn how to identify different species, how scientists keep track of individual animals, and more.
