The crew is very knowledgeable and welcoming. They did a great job educating us and keeping us entertained. It didn't hurt that the whales were incredibly cooperative that day! We saw minkes, dolphins, seals, finbacks, and the impressive humpbacks. This was a trip worth repeating.

We had a great trip out to see the whales in early October. We saw quite a few humpbacks and Atlantic white-sided dolphins. We even got to see a full breach! The seas were a little rough and several people got sea sick, so I'd...More

After three days of cancelled trips the weather was good enough to venture out to the Stellwagen Bank. The sun was out and the journey was too choppy. After an hour we reached the bank and then it was a case of looking, scouring the...More

Call or email them to see if they will mail one to you. There should be contact information on the website. I don’t know of a specific online retailer.
