“All depends on what you see...”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

By definition whale watching is good if you see things, not much if you don't. First time out we saw nothing, but they gave us free passes for another trip, no expiration date. Next time out was great. Saw Finn Backs, Minkes, dolphins, seals, an 8' Swordfish, and a 30' Basking Shark. Awesome finds. Vessel and crew both great. First come for tickets. Toilet and sodas available. Worth a 1/2 day while in Kennebunkport. Enjoy.

“A beautiful day on the water for whale watching”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This trip was 4 glorious hours on the water with 3 whale sightings, 1 breach near the boat, and a tour of the lighthouse island with a large seal population. The captain explained that the whales we saw were minke whales,which are smaller than other whales. He was very knowledgeable about the environment and really made this an enjoyable tour as well as educational. Couldn't have been better-a sunny day with no wind and calm seas. Well worth the time and money.

“excellent”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We had a great experience on this boat. Our captain informed us of many interesting facts along the way. We got to see an humpback whale he named Pinball. She was leaping and even breached for us. Just beautiful. Very accommodating crew.
We highly recommend it!

“Great experience and educational trip”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

This cash only about 4 hour trip was well worth the money. Very experienced captain that was also very knowledgeable about the locations that the whales, porpoises, and seals would be. Very comical commentary that the captain gave about what to look for, where to look, and what was going on. There was plenty of room to observe at the rail for photos etc. The only drawback was with the head. For some reason the restroom didn't have toilet paper, that is a little too much roughing it for me.
