Experience: Marine

Explore the waters of the world by cruise, kayak or surf board


Our whale watching cruises are both an unforgettable and educational experience. Researchers from the Whale Center of New England, the region's foremost authority on whale migrations, provide expert narration on every trip, teaching everything from whale behavior and migration patterns to marine biology.

Our high-speed catamarans are the fastest, most comfortable way to see the most magnificent creatures in all of the seas. Getting you to and from the whales in less time means you get to spend more time actually watching the whales.

Our catamarans sport three observation decks for optimum whale watching. Inside you'll find a climate-controlled cabin space with cushioned seating, free Wi-Fi, tables, state-of-the-art sound and video systems, and a galley offering food and beverages (own expense). Relax on deck and keep an eye out for humpbacks, Minke whales, finbacks and Atlantic white-sided dolphins.
