Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, you will board a whale-watching vessel and sail the waters of Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary! Many species of whales, dolphins, and other sea-life come for the bounty of calorie-rich fish that burrow in the grainy sands. Wildlife is unpredictable, but this cruise gives you the best chance to spot these wondrous beings!
