Your whale watching trips begins with a scenic tour of Boothbay Harbor. Our Naturalist will point out various islands, homes, wildlife and historic lighthouses as we begin our journey in search of the whales.
Once we reach the whale’s feeding ground we encourage all our passengers to help in our search looking for any spouts, backs, bodies, tails or splashes. When we have the first whale in sight our experienced captains maneuvers the boat close for all to see! Our Naturalist will entertain and inform you with many interesting facts and figures about the whales you are viewing. Whales we may encounter include Finbacks, Humpbacks, Minkes, dolphins and porpoises. We also may see harbor seals, sharks, ocean sunfish and a great variety of open ocean birds. Remember that humans are merely observers in the whale’s world, so we never know what they will do or what we will see. (courtesy of Boothbay Whale Watch)
