We will be departing from Plymouth, MA on board the Tails of the Sea owned by Capt John Whale Watch.

We will spend a full day on the water, departing at 8:00 am and traveling with experts in the field of whales, sharks and pelagic birds. This trip has sold out every year - we hope you can join us this year. The image above shows you just how close we get to the great whites!


The year 2020 is a big year for Plymouth! It is the 400th anniversary of when the pilgrims first landed and there are a lot of festivities all year long. Due to this huge anniversary and the increased tourism for this year, we recommend booking accommodations as soon as possible as hotels are already selling out in Plymouth.

Please check out the Destination Plymouth website for more information about dining, shopping, and other attractions in the area.
