In search of Moby Dick


Who has not dreamt of crossing paths with one of these majestic marine mammals?

Off Boston's coast, in Massachusetts Bay, the waters of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary teem with plankton and other sea creatures, which attract many whale species. They feed here for several months, before heading to warmer waters.

From the port, a three-hour cruise by catamaran will bring you face to face with minkes, humpbacks, pilot whales, rorquals, and other black whales. The spectacle of these huge mammals is utterly fascinating. The naturalists from the New England Aquarium on board will answer all your questions. A truly unique experience, from March to October (several departures per day).
