The catamaran boat sailing from the dock located on 1 west st. at Bar Harbor.
Cost 60$ and takes 3-4 hrs. no guarantee to see whales , not a good idea
To take the sail on a foggy day.
long time to stand in line even if you purchased ticket in advance, you still need to pick up the ticket in the office.
It is big boat (3 decks) that can carry hundreds of people.
The boat looks safe to me, equipped with all the emergency accessories and Snack Bar & Restrooms.
The boat sails about 100 miles deep into the ocean to the whale area. Then, the captain shutdown the engine and the guide at the upper deck start to scan the water. Once a jet of water is spotted the captain sails the boat to the area (not to close) of the whale/whales.
This process repeat itself many times.
Warning: Don’t expect to see a whale from a finger touch distance.
Good advice: while sailing prefer not to be on the upper (and open) deck it's very cold and windy
