Looking for a whale watch that requires less travel time, offers the most comfortable ride available and gives you more time viewing some of the world's most magnificent creatures? Look no further! Here is Boston's ONLY Whale Watch on a high-speed catamaran. They will get you to and from the whales in half the time, which allows you more time to watch the whales.

Set sail with us for the whale watch experience of a lifetime. Our destination: Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary, a rich feeding ground for whales, dolphins, sea birds and other marine creatures. You’ll have a good chance to view several different species of large whales, including humpbacks, finbacks, minkes, pilot whales and the critically endangered right whales.

The location of the whales may require more travel time, extending the trip beyond three hours. Please allow for additional time in your schedule. The average trip is between 3.5 to 4 hours.

The staff is amazing unfortunately my 1 year old got sick due to the motion they were wonderful didn't get mad helped with anything that they could even gave him a free ginger ale to help comfort his stomach. Seeing the whales was great but the staff made it that much better.

Memorable experience. The ship can go fast but smooth. The personnel is very professional and the naturist ladies are extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. We highly recommend it!

The naturalist or guide was awesome. Not only was she informative and instructional without being condensing, her genuine enthusiasm when spotting a whale made the trip for everyone! The ride is pleasant and there was enough seating for everyone. Great tour, great people!

This was amazing and well worth it. Our guide/speaker was fantastic. We saw 3 or 4 different humpbacks surface and dive 15-20 times. Also saw an ocean sunfish (mola mola) and some type of shark (possibly a great white). Beautiful day well worth the money.

It was an amazing experience!! We all decided it was worth doing again. Even though we went for a summer learning experience foe then7 year old all members of our party (up to age of 77) had a great time. Some of the stories they told even allowed us to add in some math. Thank you

The most whales we have ever seen! This was an amazing experience. We spent a decent amount of time watching the whales. Even saw a few calf’s. Guide was very knowledgeable!

We saw whales in three different areas. The last sighting included a female and her 2018 and 2021 calves is that stayed near the boat for close to a half hour. Absolutely amazing! Make sure you take a warm jacket along. We left in sunny, hot weather but when that boat is moving over the Atlantic, it is chilly!

It was an epic trip. We saw a mom and calf pair of humpback whales, and the calf was extremely playful and active. So we saw various activities. The naturalist was very knowledgeable, and my kids learned a lot of interesting facts and environment conservation tips. Would highly recommend to everyone!

We were very lucky to be able to see numerous whales. The mom and calf continued to surface! From what the guide said, it’s rare to see so many. They usually only see one. This was the 11 am tour from The NE Aquarium.
