What better way to view the magnificent marine mammals that reside in Atlantic waters than aboard one of Boston’s finest maritime vessels—a Boston Harbor Cruises high-speed catamaran? Spend less time getting to the whales, and more time getting to know them when you take a cruise aboard one of Boston Harbor Cruises’ top-notch vessels!
Boston Harbor Cruises’ catamarans feature 3 outdoor decks to give passengers optimum viewing options, and also have a comfortable indoor climate-controlled cabin for an optimal experience no matter the weather. Make yourself comfortable amidst cushioned seating, tables, top-notch sound and video system, and an array of snacks and beverages available for purchase.
Your Whale Watch excursion will be led by professional researchers from the Whale Center of New England, New England’s leading authority on whale populations. These knowledgeable guides will answer questions, narrate the tour, and assist passengers in knowing where to look to spot the beautiful whales that are the central focus of this exciting cruise.
Short of actually swimming with whales (which sounds a little cold and dangerous, doesn’t it?), New England Aquarium by Boston Harbor Cruises offers you the most appealing opportunity to sail in their midst and marvel at the giant mammals that dominate the depths of our oceans. Here’s a little preview of the creatures you may behold on your New England Aquarium Whale Watch voyage:
Your New England Aquarium Whale Watch by Boston Harbor Cruise promises to be…a whale of a time (well, it had to be said), and you will leave Boston Harbor with a newfound appreciation for the grace and antics of the mammals that swim beneath the surface of the cold Atlantic. Enjoy the views from your high-speed catamaran as you cruise out to the deep waters, and let the fun begin!

Comments about Smart Destinations :
I've done this whale watch every year and it never disappoints! Boston Harbor Cruises has the best vessels and the most educated on-board naturalists to narrate the tour. I've gone on whale trips with two other companies in Boston, but have learned that BHC is superior. That's why I wasn't surprised to learn that they are now operating the whale watch for the New England Aquarium. Each time I have gone, I have seen whales. I understand that they guarantee it or your money back, but I've never had to apply for a refund. I've done whale watching in Seattle and in New England and I love this tour!!
The Boston Harbor Cruise (BHC) Ticket Center is located on Long Wharf, to the left of the New England Aquarium. Present your pass to any ticket agent, board the cat and enjoy!
Whale watch is approximately 4 hours long.
