Cape Ann Whale Watch

Cape Ann Whale Watch believes that education is the key to conservation, and thus provides an excellent way for students and scouts to learn about whales. Groups will see humpback, mink, and fin whales, and if they’re lucky, toothed whales! An on-board naturalist will be available throughout the entire trip to answer any questions, as well as to engage groups with samples of whale baleen and teeth, recording of humpback whale songs, and a 3D model of Stellwagen Bank to help groups understand the ocean food chain, as well as threats that whales face.
