Sunset Whale Watch

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 our boats put 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.

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! We can not guarantee whale sightings – they are wild animals and we can’t tell them where to meet us but I promise we’ll do our best.

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 we will visit Boon Island Light which is buzzing with seals and other wildlife. You can also plan on seeing a gorgeous sunset and stunning views of the Southern Maine Coastline from the ocean, too!

If you love whales, this is your chance to see these incredibly intelligent mammals up close! ($99.00/pp)  ***Tickets must be purchased in advance***
