In an effort to promote environmental sustainability, the restaurant will plant one tree for every treetini served.

A selection of gastropub dishes?available after 5 p.m.?rounds out the menu. Diners can enjoy burgers, pasta, and grilled seafood on plush, outdoor couches while roaring fire pits and patio heaters keep chilly ocean breezes and confused snowmen from Antarctica at bay.

Dana Wharf Whale Watching's expert crews and skippers glide their watercrafts on the open seas so visitors can soak up sunshine while searching for rare and endangered whales as they migrate south to avoid tax season. Expert captains steer crafts through frothy spumes and narrate each trip, educating passengers on the abundant life beneath the glassy waters. Voyagers can either venture into the boat's full-service galley for a hot meal or bring their own food and nonalcoholic drinks to stave off hunger and resist eating the ocean's jagged, hamburger-shaped coral.
