Beginning at Central Wharf in Boston, hop aboard a high-speed catamaran and embark on a 3-hour whale-watching cruise to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, a stretch of open water at the mouth of Massachusetts Bay that serves as a rich feeding ground for whales, dolphins, sea birds and more.
From the ship’s three outdoor decks, view humpback, fin, minke and pilot whales, plus Atlantic white-sided dolphins, harbour porpoises and more with the help of a naturalist from the Whale Center of New England. They will share their knowledge about the animals’ behaviors, conservation status, scientific tracking and more.
