We took our grandsons to Monhegan on the ferry. We saw a minke whale, seals sunning on the rocks and porpoises! Very exciting. The boys enjoyed it so much. Fun day on the island and a beautiful ride home. Highly recommend this trip.

It was a simple and easy process. Everyone was very friendly. The boat was clean, and the views going over to the island quite enjoyable as well.

We see them in June & July. Cloudy day helps with increased activity. Did not see them on the trip to Monhegan.

They sometimes sell out - especially in July. Never been there in August, so no experience.
