  • Getting Ready for a Whale Watching Trip

    You are about to experience a wondrous sight some people only dream of. Whale watching can be an inspiring and uplifting experience for anyone, but without some helpful tips your time out to sea might not be everything you hope for. Seasickness, dead batteries, and missed shots can put dampers on your grand adventure.

    Be Prepared

    Whether you’re an avid sailor or a reluctant landlubber, you should always prepare for your time at sea. Be sure to eat before you set sail, bring seasickness pills, and drink a lot of water. Bring layers to wear; it may be summertime, but the ocean is colder than being on land. Along with your extra layers of clothing, bring a good pair of rubber-soled sneakers to keep from slipping on the deck. Always wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and consider investing in a hat. It may feel cool and wet with the ocean spray on your face, but it won’t feel so nice when you’re coming home a red lobster.

    Extras to Bring

    Consider bringing items to help pass the time, like travel board games, a book, or coloring books for the kids. Traveling to the ideal whale watching spot can possibly take a couple hours. Bring binoculars in case the whales are being shy and are a little farther away than you’d like. This goes along with your camera and its batteries. Do you want to have the perfect shot, and the camera dies? Don’t let this memory pass you by.

    Lining up the Shot

    You’re going whale watching; you want to capture the best memory you can, right? Take advantage of your zoom feature, and consider investing in a polarized lens. This will help eliminate sun glare and viewing the whale through the water. Also, look forward to where the whale will breach the water, not where it just dove. Ask your captain for more tips on taking the best pictures.

    Call Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tour at (508) 927-5575. They’re committed to giving you the best whale watching tours in Plymouth.

  • What are the Benefits of Charter Fishing?

    Whether you’re an expert fisherman or thinking about angling for the first time, nothing beats the experience of charter fishing. Full- and half-day charter fishing trips are great for bachelor parties, corporate team building events, birthdays, and anytime you want to enjoy the sun and the sea. But why not just take out your own boat or rent one instead of booking a private charter? Here are some of the benefits of charter fishing in Plymouth .

    Focus on the Fish

    When you book a fishing charter, the only thing you and your guests needs to worry about is showing up and having a great time. Charter fishing companies in New England will often provide the equipment you need, and depending on the length of the charter may even provide light snacks or full meals to you and your guests.

    Learn a Thing or Two

    Charter fishing boats are captained and staffed with knowledgeable fishing experts. Spending a day with such knowledgeable fishermen will improve your own skillset and help you become an even better angler . If you live in the area, you’ll also learn where some of the best fishing spots are so you can come back with your own boat.

    Bring More Friends

    Do you have a large fishing boat that can fit up to 70 guest? Probably not, but charter fishing companies like Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours does. This means you can book a fishing adventure for a large group instead of settling for some activity that’s less exciting and less fun than spending the day out on the ocean fishing.
