Like celebrities, whales frequently bask in the flash of onlookers' cameras but will retreat to their underwater caves when overwhelmed. Spy sociable whales with this Groupon.

$29 for an Adult Ticket for a Whale-Watching Cruise (Up to $48 Value)

This ticket is good for any of the cruises in the 2013 season. At least once a day, the Hurricane II puts to sea in search of whales—and you're guaranteed to see one, though not necessarily the minke whale that swallowed James Thurber in 1961.

Student, senior, and military discounted tickets are available but this Groupon still offers the best deal available. Children 3 and under are free except on weekend afternoons through the end of September.

Cape Ann Whale Watch

Since 1979, the whale-watching pioneers of Cape Ann Whale Watch have escorted more than half a million spectators fascinated by the sea's magnificent leviathans on three- to four-hour treks 15 miles off the Gloucester coast, earning it a spot on the Top 5 American Whale-Watching Tours by Joshua Horwitz, author of War of the Whales. Aboard the lightning-fast 115-foot Hurricane II, passengers can witness the natural grace of humpback whales, finback whales, dolphins, and pirates disguised as mermaids feeding and frolicking just feet from the boat. In the course of the approximately 30-mile circuit, a naturalist from Whale Cetacean Alliance narrates excursions, illumining the sight of each water dweller by discussing why whales breach, how to recognize individual humpbacks, and various feeding styles.


Reviews

It was incredible. We saw so many species of whales, even the endangered right whale and tons of humpbacks. They came very close to the boat too!

WE saw about a dozen humpback whales. It was really a fun adventure. Our captain was very aggressive chasing these enormous creatures...loved that!
