Whales are the largest mammals on Earth, and yet most people on the planet
haven’t seen them. If you’d like to catch a glimpse of these
majestic animals, you need to spend some time on the ocean with a crew
that knows what they’re doing. Captain John Whale Watching &
Fishing Tours leads whale watching adventures from Plymouth between the
months of April and November. We know where the whales like to go in Massachusetts
Bay, and we’ll be happy to take you there.
There isn’t just one whale species swimming in Massachusetts Bay,
but several. Here are a few of the whale species you are likely to see
on a whale watching tour with Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours.
Humpback Whales: Humpback whales, so named for their unusual body shape, can grow up to
50 feet in length. These whales are especially dramatic breachers—they
sometimes bring their entire bodies out of the water when coming to the surface.
Finback Whales: When it comes to animal size, finback whales are second only to blue whales.
These whales can grow to almost 90 feet in length, and have a slightly
more slender build than humpback whales.
Pilot Whales: With a maximum length of about 22 feet, pilot whales are among the smallest
whales you’re likely to see on your whale watching tour. These oceanic
dolphins are known for their bulbous heads.
Right Whales: Like humpback and finback whales, right whales have baleen, or mouth bristles
designed to catch food in the water. These whales grow up to 60 feet long,
and tend to have patches of rough skin on their heads.
Group Whale Watching
Whale watching is always more fun when you can share the experience with
others. The next time you’re planning a group outing, consider taking
advantage of our group whale watching rates.
School Groups: We offer a unique learning experience for children from Plymouth and elsewhere
in Southern Massachusetts. Our expert guides regularly teach classes on
vessel safety, marine mammals, marine knots, and other exciting subjects.
Tour Groups: No private group is too small or too large. If you wish to view the whales
with a group of your closest friends and family members, we’ll gladly
Whale watching is an incredible experience that everyone should have at
least once in their lives. Whether you’re planning a school field
trip or an outing with your family, you’ll love going on a whale
watching expedition with Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours.
