We had a wonderful time! We were in Boothbay on our honeymoon and had an expectation of only "maybe" seeing a whale. Instead we saw a dozen or more whales. The trip was wonderful, the boat was great, the crew was great! We highly recommend!

We had a very informative Biologist guide and a great boat pilot. We saw 8-9 whales and loved every second of it. Hooray for Whales! Make sure you bring a jacket as you will likely catch a decent amount of sea spray on your trip....More

We had a great day for whale watching, smooth sailing and sunny. We saw several whales and some seals. Our guide was very knowledgeable, the boat was comfortable, and Boothbay Harbor is a cute little town :)

The trip was superb! The in-boat biologist was knowledgable, personable, informative and enthusiastic with descriptions of the seal-life: ocean and air alike.

Very informative, saw many fin whales and puffins. The experience was better than we expected. If you go, dress in layers sine it is significantly colder out to sea.
