What an amazing experience! I wasn't really excited about it aside from taking a boat ride, but it turned into this amazing experience. I don't know if I can say amazing enough. We had a great whale expert onboard helping to identify the whales we...More

This tour is incredible! We were out to see for a good while, but we were on a mission considering there were sightings earlier that morning. Honestly, it was so beautiful out on the ocean that the whales were a bonus. We were lucky since...More

This was amazing! We saw fin whales, minke whales, and a basking shark. I love that it goes to a different place in the ocean than the one I usually take out of Boston. We saw more and different species. Just one caveat - the...More

It was a great trip! Watch out, if you get sea sick, the boat is rather small and the ride is bumpy. (they sell pills for 50 cent on the boat, those really helped me) But that what’s makes it a great experience. And it...More
