Welcome to the 2015 whale watch season!

The new season of New England Aquarium Whale Watches is underway with our partners over at Boston Harbor Cruises. And while spring is working hard on land, Stellwagen Bank is already looking springy with whales feeding and fluking in this rich marine habitat. Be among the first to welcome back the whales! Head over to Boston Harbor Cruises' website and buy your tickets online.

We'll get to those whales soon enough. But first, some introductions. The knowledgable naturalists who will be on the boats and documenting sightings in the Whale Watch Log are:

  • Laura Howes
  • Tegan Mortimer
  • Tasia Blough
  • Annie Wolf
  • Hannah Pittore
  • Annie Goodenough
  • Laura Cupicha
  • Heidi Hansen

And the comfy fleet of vessels whisking passengers out to the feeding grounds include Aurora, Asteria, Cetacea and Salacia—plus one more coming later this summer!
