Discover an enchanting world that thrives beneath the ocean's surface with a whale-watching tour and aquarium visit that brings you face-to-face with creatures of the deep. View humpback whales in their natural habitat and encounter thousands of marine animals on display at the New England Aquarium.

From Boston Harbor, climb aboard your comfortable hi-speed catamaran and set off to Stellwagon Bank National Marine Sanctuary, one of the world’s most active feeding grounds for marine mammals. Learn about whale migration and behavior from your onboard trained naturalist guide, before marveling at the majestic creatures up-close as they spout and breach in front of your eyes.

Once back on dry land, head to the New England Aquarium, where you can admire more than 2,000 colorful marine species within the incredible 4-story, 200,000-gallon (757-cbm) Giant Ocean Tank, including Myrtle—a beloved 500 pound (227 kg) green sea turtle. Check out the not-to-be-missed colonies of waddling penguins, and don’t forget to stop by the Shark and Ray Touch tank to feel the smooth skin of a cownose ray gliding gracefully under your fingertips.
