I had a great experience and the staff were very friendly. They waited for us to board the boat although we are late and the staff answered all our questions. I did feel like the bathrooms could be improved

Echoing what another reviewer said about the bathrooms - The bathrooms were very poorly designed and not clean in the sense that there was no soap or hand sanitizer (there was however, a very empty bottle of hand sanitizer in each bathroom). Additionally, the locks on the bathroom did not work, so you had to quickly grab the door if someone was opening it while you were inside, to let them know someone was inside. Also, the “flush” button was extremely hard to find (it was on the side of the sink, of all places and the “press here to flush” button located at the front of the sink did not include an arrow, so I spent some time searching for what “here” meant). This resulted in many people, understandably, not being able to find the flush button, so when I went inside to use it, I was greeted by a gross nonflushed toilet. The lack of soap or sanitizer was the real issue here though. You better hope the galley crew are washing their hands elsewhere, maybe the kitchen, before preparing your food.

We had a wonderful time on this whale watch due in large part to the naturalist Kaylee. She is a marine biologist, who shares her knowledge with humor and complete lack of pretension. She is clearly passionate about the whales, other marine life, and the ocean. She gets as excited as the customers when she spots a whale!! She was an absolute joy. The boat is clean, the crew helpful and quite pleasant. Honorable mention to the Galley crew- Polly, and a young man whose name I don't recall. 😖 The first mate Dave, a Mass. Maritime graduate keeps everyone safe on land and at sea. Thanks Dave!! Lets not forget the whales!! We saw humpbacks and minke. And a sunfish. Spectacular!!! What an amazing day! We can't wait to go back again. Thank you Newburyport Whale Watch!!

My friends and I had an awesome time on the whale watch trip. We saw three humpback whales and the boat was respectful of their space. The naturalist, Kaylee, did an amazing job of providing interesting and informative facts about whales and different whale species that we could see while in New England or around the world. The crew was friendly and we had a wonderful time. I'd recommend bringing layers and sunglasses depending on weather conditions. The groupon also substantially helped me afford the trip so check that out, too.
