Before tours, groups are briefed on the common whales, dolphins, and porpoises that migrate throughout New England's waters. They then meander through a sea of educational displays such as marine charts, diagrams, and disco-era whale-song recordings. After boarding the boat, sightseers launch from Plymouth Harbor and into Stellwagen Bank, passing by islands and a lighthouse. Naturalists narrate the four-hour expedition as groups view humpback whales, fin whales, and white-sided dolphins along with landmarks such as Gurnet Light. Tours typically last 3.5–4 hours.

The tentative start date for the 2013 season is April 6, though it is subject to change based on weather conditions.

The ocean's waves and a seabird's occasional rock ballad are all that interrupt the silence across the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. Suddenly, a humpback whale leaps from the water and crashes back down, sending a plume of whitecaps into the air. Aboard their boat, a tour group snaps photos of the breathtaking moment as a crewmember narrates it all.

The US Coast Guard–licensed captains at Capt John Whale Watching and Fishing Tours aim to create once-in-a-lifetime experiences like these everyday. Their boats serve as floating classrooms, aboard which they teach deep-sea fishing some days and pilot groups into the habitats of everything from dolphins to minke whales on other days. The marine educators also lead kids' programs that let the students explore an on-board tidal pool to feel the texture of spider crabs, sea stars, and baby submarines.

Customer Reviews

Krill, the researcher on the whale watching tour was very informative on every aspect of the trip from Plymouth Harbor, providing essentially a guided tour of the harbor and the history of the area during departure. She also narrated all of the boat's activities to keep the guests completely informed on progress during the search for whales. Her description of the animals and birds encountered, their behaviors, and their place in the habitat made this a real learning experience and made this experience more interactive with the environment. Overall, the tour company went well out of their way the provide an exciting and unique experience.
