Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Whale Watching Excursion

For those who love whales, there is no better way to observe them than in their natural habitat. If you have never been whale watching , however, there are a few things you should do to have the best experience possible. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your whale watching excursion.


Dress for the Excursion
Regardless of how the weather may be on land, the weather on the water tends to be cold, windy, and damp. It is better to have extra layers of clothing to take off than to risk suffering due to cold weather. The air temperature out at sea is lower than the temperature on land, and you will also be faced with both wind and water from sea spray . It helps to bring a hat, a sweatshirt or jacket, and gloves.

Be Flexible
Go into your whale watching expedition with an open mind. Your captain will do the best he can to get you up close to the whales so you can see their spectacular shows and maybe even hear their songs. However, as simple as it may be to plan a boat trip, it is not easy to plan for whales’ activities. Since different species’ migration patterns vary, you may not get to see exactly the type of whale that you wanted to see.

Prepare for Seasickness
If you have never been on a boat before, know that it does not feel the same as standing on the ground. Those who tend to suffer from motion sickness will want to bring along the appropriate medicine in order to make the most of their excursions.
