If you love whales, this is your chance to see these incredibly intelligent mammals up close!

This is our most adventurous tour and has something to offer for everyone! From the sightseer, the thrill seeker to the marine lover, our whale watching tour in the Gulf of Maine is the way to go! On this 3-Hour adventure our boat puts you up close and personal with the beautiful creatures of the ocean without the hassle of the crowds! With just a maximum of 14 people per boat, every seat has 360 degree views.Last year we had a 97% sighting rate – If for some unusual reason we don’t see any whales you’ll be offered a non-sighting pass which you can use forever until you see a whale!

In the Gulf of Maine we are lucky enough to encounter many different species of cetaceans. During their migration we commonly see the following mammals; Humpback Whales, Fin Whales, Minke Whales, Northern Right Whale, Atlantic White-Sided Dolphin and the Harbor Porpoise. We are also lucky enough to occasionally see the following; Sei Whales, Blue Whales, Sperm Whales and the Long Finned Pilot Whale. These whales pass right by us offshore!

This is your chance to have some amazing face time with these majestic animals that will on occasion come right up to our boat. While Whales are the main attraction you can also plan on seeing a gorgeous sunset and stunning views of the Southern Maine Coastline.

If you love whales, this is your chance to see these incredibly intelligent mammals up close!

      3. FREE PARKING located at 169 Port Rd. Kennebunk, Maine. ***This is first come first serve so a parking spot is NOT guaranteed for you.

Refund Policy

New England EcoAdventures reserves the right to cancel a tour due to unsafe sea or weather conditions or maintenance needs which does not allow the boat to operate properly. In such a case, New England EcoAdventures will try to reschedule the tour if possible. If it isn’t possible passengers will receive a full refund.

All Cancellations must be made at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled departure date. If canceled less than 48 hours or if a no show occurs the customer will be responsible for the full amount of the excursion.

As we have minimum space on our boats when a customer reserves a specific date and time that booking is held exclusively for that customer and no longer available to other customers which is why we need a minimum of at least 48 hours to potentially fill the canceled seats prior to the trip.
