As whales migrate from the coast of Greenland to the Caribbean Sea, Bar Harbor and the coast of Maine are among the best whale watching sites in the world. Accompanied by an experienced naturalist guide, you'll learn about the history and habits of the largest mammals on earth as well as the variety of other marine life indigenous to the coastal waters of Maine. As you make your way to the feeding grounds you'll pass the lovely Porcupine Islands, Egg Rock Lighthouse and have a spectacular view of Cadillac Mountain. Upon arrival at the feeding grounds watch for finbacks, humpbacks and minkes, which are most commonly found off the coast of Bar Harbor. With a little luck, you may also encounter the rare right whale, pilot whale, dolphins and basking sharks. An abundance of other marine life that also make these waters their home include seals, porpoise, and a variety of seabirds such as the storm petrel, shearwater and northern gannet. Be sure to bring your camera and warm clothing for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Note: All adult participants must show a valid photo ID to board the whale watch vessel. We recommend that you dress warmly, wear layered clothing, rubber-soled shoes and bring sunglasses and sunscreen. Wildlife sightings are frequent, but not guaranteed.
