We had a really enjoyable trip. Great weather. Interesting trip despite not getting to see any whales. We saw a sunfish, a pod of dolphins, a 30 foot basking shark. And true to their advertising they gave us coupons to come again for free.

What You'll Get


While whales spend much of their time underwater, they still must occasionally breach to breathe and test whether their wings have reached maturity yet. Watch them take the leap with this Groupon.

About Capt. Bill and Sons Whale Watch


Capt. Bill and Sons Whale Watch started more than 50 years ago, but the late Captain Bill Cunningham can't take full credit for his business' creation. In many ways, the whales themselves founded the company, though they still made Bill do all of the paperwork. Capt. Bill and Sons originally chartered deep sea fishing trips, but the anglers would often get distracted when a humpback or minke whale breached the surface. Seeing how the majestic mammals awed his passengers, the company decided to stow its fishing rods and set out on whale-watching tours instead.

Today, the Capt. Bill and Sons team—which includes son Marc—welcome whale-watchers aboard their two-tiered ship, the Miss Cape Ann. Once they head out into the water, the experts share tips on spotting whales and insights into the animals' behavior, biology, and social structure. Passengers should look sharp for other species as well, as the waters around Stellwagen Bank and Jeffreys Ledge are also home to Atlantic white-sided dolphins and harbor seals.
