Whale watching excursions are affordable, family-friendly nature cruises that search for the majestic, massive, marine mammals just off the New England coast. Whale watching fleets offer excursions guided by naturalists who teach passengers all about these peaceful, endangered creatures, and know where to find them. Meet the finback, humpback, and minke whales of the Atlantic Ocean, and take home rare souvenir photos of waving whale tails and breaching blowholes.
