On a New England Aquarium Whale Watch, you are guaranteed to see whales.

From Boston, Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary is just a short ride away.

One of the world’s most active marine sanctuaries, Stellwagen Bank is abundant with whales, dolphins, sea birds, and other marine life.

If there are no whale sightings on your trip, you will receive a free ticket for a future whale watch with us.
Just look at what other passengers have seen!

This area is home to several kinds of large whales, including acrobatic humpback whales, finback whales, minke whales, as well as pilot whales and the critically endangered right whales.

White-sided dolphins may also put in an appearance.

Learn about all these fascinating marine mammals from onboard naturalists trained by Aquarium experts.
