This whale watching journey takes passengers from Newburyport, down the Merrimack River into the Gulf of Maine where you can feast your eyes on a variety of whales as well as porpoises, seals, sharks, and an array of sea birds. Accompanied by expert naturalists, they will share with you their knowledge on the creatures you encounter and their marine environment. Enjoy this unforgettable experience, and leave knowing that you're being kind to the whales as well. Newburyport Whale Watch is a member of Whale SENSE, a program of responsible whale-watching that takes into account the well-being of the whales being spotted in addition to the passengers doing the spotting. Additional activities with Newburyport Whale Watch include birding cruises, lighthouse explorations, dinner and dancing cruises, special fireworks events and our trips to the Isles of Shoals!
