How long is New England Aquarium whale watch and what will I see?
Get ready for an adventure of the saltiest kind when you board a high-speed, luxury catamaran and set a course for the rich waters of whale central - the Stallwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary. Up to 400 passengers can ride in comfortable style in a climate-controlled interior cabin with soft seats as the vessel zooms along at 35 knots (38 mph) toward these protected waters that are prime feeding grounds for whales, dolphins, sea birds and other marine life. Many different types of whales call these waters home throughout the year, including finbacks, minkes, humpbacks and pilot whales. If you're lucky, you may even see an endangered right whale. But don't worry about identifying them all, because our on-board aquarium naturalists will be on-hand to identify the whales, explain their amazing behaviors and answer all your questions on this three hour tour.
