Beschreibung

Set out into the open sea to go whale watching before visiting the diverse collection of marine species at the New England Aquarium!

Departing from Boston, board a fast catamaran that will swiftly transport you away from the coast and onto the open sea. Aboard the boat, you'll have access to an air-conditioned cabin with comfortable seats, as well as the outer decks. Drinks and snacks are available to purchase throughout the cruise.

Set sail for a popular feeding spot where you'll be able to observe numerous species of whale: humpback whales, minke whales, pilot whales, fin whales (20 meters long on average), southern right whales, and many more. You will also come across dolphins, sea birds and other marine animals!

The onboard team of ecologists trained by the New England Aquarium will share with you their knowledge about the behavior, conservation and migration routes of whales (in English). You will even learn how to identify the different species.

At the end of the cruise, you can continue your encounter with the marine world at the New England Aquarium, which is located right next to the pier at which you arrive by the boat. The aquarium houses some 20,000 animals from 600 species! You can also attend shows featuring seals, giant turtles and penguins.

The aquarium is an institution that is heavily involved in the protection of the environment and marine life. You'll be able to learn more about their different campains thanks to a range of thematic exhibitions.
