What To Bring On Your Whale Watching Trip | Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours - Whale Watch Plymouth

In addition to seeing some of the largest animals on the planet, whale watching excursions are a great opportunity to enjoy the cool sea breeze.

However, the sea can be a fickle mistress, and it pays to be prepared. Here is a brief list of things you should bring with you on your next whale watching excursion:

  • Weather protection:

Rain or shine, you should always be prepared. In the case of sun, it’s important that you bring a hat, sunblock, and sunglasses to shield you from sunlight reflected from the ocean. In case the weather turns, you should have a rain jacket handy. Dress in layers and wear a pair of rubber-soled shoes for better traction on the wet deck.

  • A camera or binoculars:

To maximize your whale watching enjoyment, it’s a good idea to bring a pair of binoculars. That way, you’ll be able to behold the majestic creatures up close. Also, a camera will help you record the excitement for years to come.

  • Motion sickness pills:

A lot of people have trouble with the rocking motion of the boat—if you’re one of them, take motion sickness pills an hour before you set out for sea. Nausea can take the fun out of whale watching in a hurry.

  • Questions:

When do humpback whales migrate? How big do they get? These are just a few of the questions you might ask on your whale watching excursion. In addition to seeing these amazing creatures in action, you’ll find that whale watching can be a great learning opportunity.

The Future For Humpback Whales | Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours - Massachusetts Whale Watching

In this short video, the Plant Earth group gives us astonishing images of humpback whales, and startling information about their dim future. Though recordings of whale songs originally helped the Earth conservation movement, the whales themselves are still endangered by whaling nations and legal loopholes.

Once you see these noble creatures, you’ll immediately understand why they’re worth saving. Come by Captain John Whale Watching and Fishing Tours, and we’ll take you on an ocean adventure that you won’t soon forget. Call us today at (508) 746-2646.
