Breaching Humpback Whale

Stay Warm and Comfortable

The waters off the coast of Massachusetts can be very cold this time of year, so dress in layers and think about wearing a waterproof jacket or poncho over your clothes to stay dry. If you are a first time whale watcher, you should bring along motion sickness medication in case the choppy waves start to get to you. The last thing you want is to be stuck in the bathroom while everyone else is viewing the great humpback whale.

Don’t Forget the Sunblock

Water reflects and magnifies the sun’s rays, so bring plenty of sunscreen on your whale watching excursion, even on cold and overcast days. Without protection, you run the risk of getting severely sunburned during a three to five hour tour.

Conserve Your Film

Next to sunblock and warm clothes, a camera is the most important thing to bring on your whale watching tour. You will have plenty of stories to tell your family and friends once the boat returns to the dock, but nothing tells the story like a breathtaking photo or two. If you have a film camera, don’t use all of your film on far-away whales. Patience is a virtue when whale watching , so wait until you are close to these magnificent creatures to snap some unbelievable photos.
