If you're pulling together an itinerary for a trip to the area, we'd like to put in a plug for some of our favorite places to learn even more about marine mammals and the oceans of the world. And if you live in Boston, day trips up the coast to Gloucester couldn't be nicer when you stop in a few of our favorite places. Of course, we look forward to making your acquaintance on a Capt. Bill and Sons whale watch trip, a favorite among things to do around Boston. But we also like to encourage our guests to check out some of the following tourist attractions. Boston and beyond, these can't be beat.

Boston Day Trips

Those living in or near Boston are familiar with the New England Aquarium, a great place to start a lifetime of learning about oceans and marine exploration. It's one of the popular tourist attractions in Boston, and many who set sail with us have been inspired there. Many guests on the Miss Cape Ann who enjoy being honorary members of our research team have learned a thing or two at the Aquarium about whales, marine life and more. We're big believers in education and building awareness and are proud to be part of a larger community of conservationists.

Of course, we have a wealth of resources right here in Gloucester, so if you are looking for things to do, Boston and beyond, consider the short trip up north to visit the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center and the Whale Center of New England. Both are close neighbors of the Capt. Bill and Sons Whale Watch office and are great sources for education and research.

Whether you are looking for educational Boston day trips for your bright classroom of future conservationists or you are building an exciting itinerary for a family trip, we hope you'll include a Capt. Bill and Sons Whale Watch in your plans. We look forward to meeting you soon!
