The whale watch is also part of a Jr. Tech Program workshop on Marine Animal Behavior
. Students aboard the vessel will be learning to identify and describe whale behavior. For those who are interested in participating along with the students, we’ll have extra worksheets!
Hope to see you April 23rd!

What to Expect:
You never know what you might see out on the water! Humpback Whales, Right Whales, and Minke Whales can be seen this time of the year. Several species of dolphins may also be spotted. We might see seals such as the Atlantic Harbor Seal pictured above. We'll definitely see lots of birds. We'll see some great views of Plymouth Harbor on our cruise out to Stellwagen Banks. The trip out generally takes 50-75 minutes, and the naturalist as well as NMLC staff will be aboard to talk about marine animals and show specimens.
