Whether it's 10 minute+ drum solo epics, heavy sludge metal masterpieces, or whatever this song is, the great whale has been inspiring artists of all different molds from the earliest days of heave rock & roll. Now, through special day-long boat rides offered by Boston Harbor Cruises, you have the chance to see what all the fuss is about and see some leviathans for yourself. Here’s a quick guide on what a day out on the water with these animals will have for you.
What’s it like?
Whether it’s a couple’s days out or a family trip to Boston, whale watching is a beautiful, and uniquely Boston way to see this city. These cruises take you out to the major whale-watching spots near the tip of the Cape, where you’ll see some of the most majestic animals in all of nature in their native home. What’s more, the boat comes with a bar offering some amazing spots to relax on your way in and out of the harbor.
$55 (But be sure to check the website for things like senior & student discounts!)
Everyday, cruises typically leave at these times during the peak summer:
Check the website for more times, including non-peak summer hours. The cruises typically last between 3.5 to 4.5 hours, with a little over an hour spent taking you to and from where the whales are. The rest of the time is spent out in the water with them!
Tip: If you can, head out on one of the later boats. While you’ve got a very high chance of seeing whales on every trip, the captains on morning rides will touch base with the afternoon ships and let them know where the best spots are.
Whale watching is an iconic Boston tradition, and one that anyone visiting for a few days had to put on their to-do list. And if you're looking for a place to stay for your next Boston trip, come check-in with us! Reservations can be made HERE, or directly over the phone at 617-566-4500.
