Whales are strange and beautiful mammals. Being some of the largest and most intelligent creatures in the animal kingdom (seriously, their brain power can rival ours in some ways), they truly are a sight to behold.
Fortunately for us here in the Boston, MA, area, Massachusetts is one of the top 10 whale watching spots in the world. And these boating companies are more than happy to help you explore it.
Boston Harbor Cruises | Connect on Facebook
Boston Harbor Cruises has long been known for their excellent boat tours. But since partnering the with New England Aquarium (NEAQ), their whale watching outings have really grown into something special.
On each tour, you’ll have a NEAQ naturalist close at hand to give you an in-depth lesson on the behaviors of every whale that you see. It truly makes for a fascinating afternoon.
Massachusetts Bay Lines | Connect on Facebook
When it was founded by a U.S. Navy veteran more than 50 years ago, Massachusetts Bay Lines was little more than a small family-owned company out to help Boston residents explore the sea.
Although generations have passed, the company has never changed hands, and remains with the same family to this day. The only thing that’s really changed is the size of their impressive fleet, which has expanded to five different vessels available for both public and private tours.
Night Rider Charters | Connect on Facebook
If you’re interested in exploring the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary with no one but your close friends and family around, then you’ll want to consider Night Rider Charters. They specialize in exclusive, private tours for every occasion.
When you embark on one of their whale watching jaunts, you’re bound to have a more up-close and personal view of the whales. Not only that, but you’ll have some great food and drink to enjoy, too. It’s truly a VIP experience!
Thar She Blows!
It’s one thing to see a whale on television. But seeing it right before your own eyes? Well, that’s a truly special moment that you won’t soon forget.
