Live music can set the mood on a cruise and overpower the sound of curse words that whales have incorporated into their songs after centuries of hanging out with sailors. Take in less salty tunes with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $19 for a whale-watching cruise for one ($33 value)
- $25 for a fireworks cruise for two ($44 value)
During the whale-watching cruise, the boat travels to the whales, located 10 to 40 miles from the shore. The fireworks cruise provides a narrated tour of the Isles of Shoals and plenty of sing-a longs before stopping just off Hampton Beach to see the fireworks.
Al Gauron Deep Sea Fishing & Whale Watching
Al Gauron Deep Sea Fishing & Whale Watching’s three boats ferry up to 60 passengers out into the Atlantic’s cobalt waters during fishing excursions, and up to 150 while whale-watching. The fleet also escorts passengers across the ocean on evening fireworks cruises.
Al Gauron’s sea-seasoned team takes fishermen miles offshore on 2-, 4-, and 8.5-hour deep-sea fishing trips that have yielded fish up to 20 pounds in the past. Anglers have even been known to catch up to 100 mackerel on four-hour trips. The fleet can also make 12-hour fishing-marathon trips in order to give anglers a chance to fish in waters that are farther out.
For close encounters with humpbacks, finbacks, minke whales, and giant sharks, the ships sail up to 40 miles offshore on five-hour whale-watching trips. All information the crew gathers from the whales, such as pod size and each whale’s sweater size, is given to the Blue Ocean Society in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
