A whale watch is like a land safari, complete with wild animals of all kinds. The whales are free to roam the oceans, as are the dolphins, marine birds, basking sharks, bluefin tuna, and other intriguing marine animals you may see with Capt. Bill and Sons. Northeast of Boston, tours guarantee exposure to these wonders that travel many miles of ocean in search of feeding areas. Though we never know where or what species we'll see, every tour is different, departing from Gloucester, northeast of Boston. Whale watching tours provide whale sightings 99% of the time, so the odds are in your favor.
