This was an amazing whale watching cruise. We saw over 10 whales up close and personal. Several in the distance. I would highly recommend this tour. They guarantee whale sightings and will give you a free cruise ticket that never expires if you don’t see a whale. They drive you out to a protected area 1 1/2 hours out. You watch for whales in this protected area for an hour. Then another hour and a half back. It could last 3-4 hours depending on how long it takes to find them. You could see the sprays in the distance of the humpbacks. Three huge humpbacks surfaced within a few feet from us and lazily took in air and you could see their blow holes so well. Then they dove down. What an incredible experience! There is a great guide from the New England Aquarium on board keeping you posted on where to look.
The trip was great and we did see some whales and dolphins!! Unfortunately as we were outside we could not hear any of the commentary at all. When we mentioned this to one of the crew they said if we wanted to listen we had to sit inside, no-one had mentioned this and a lot if us were very disappointed. Also we were not given the guide book/leaflet which again was disappointing. Having said that it was an amazing 4 hour trip which we would thoroughly recommend.
We really enjoyed our trip! I'm so grateful we took Dramamine! Many people were getting sick! The guides were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. They told us where to look and what to watch for. They also explained a little bit about the whales, dolphins, birds and points of interest on the way out as well as giving us some history. Thank you so much!
We had a great time. It's a long boat ride out and back (tough for little ones) but our trip was well worth it. We saw a lot of whales and they even breached at the end.
The trip is a little boring but it is worth it once you see whales. If you ever done this type of whale watching before, there is no need to do it again.
