Reviews

“It was a gorgeous day! Was pleasantly surprised that the water was pretty calm. We saw three different kinds of whales, porpoise, seals and sunfish. Nice view of the lighthouse too. It was a very enjoyable trip and we would definitely recommend it to others. If you have small kids it might be a long trip, so bring things for them to do between sightings.”

“A perfect day out! The crew took time to ensure the safety of the passengers before we left dock. As we left the town, the crew pointed out places of interest. The tour took about 5 hours in total which included time looking for the whales. We were lucky to see 5 hump backed whales, including a mother and calf. The crew were very good at giving information about the whales, history of whaling and local conservation. The ship was very comfortable and had an upper open deck with the lower deck being partly open and also an enclosed bar area. Drinks and snacks were available to purchase.”

Come aboard the newest Whale Watch vessel in the New England fleet. Our new boat was launched in March 2006, is 87 ft. from bow to stern, and is equipped with the most modern safety and navigational equipment. Nick’s will cruise from Kennebunkport to the summer feeding grounds of Finbacks, Humpbacks, Minke’s, the rare Blue Whale and the endangered Right Whale.The boat has ample space at the rails on both decks for excellent viewing and “photo ops.”

There is a galley on board with snack items, light breakfast & lunch fare, soda and bottled water. You may bring your own but for safety reasons, please no glass containers or coolers.

Join our colorful “Captain Gary” and our experienced crew. Captain Gary has been our Captain since 1998 and he knows the whales, their habits and the waters they travel in. He and the mates will keep you entertained while offering you the best opportunity to have a memorable and exciting whale watching adventure.
