Whale Watching Suggestions?


Has anybody recently been on any whale watching excursions?

I'll be in Maine August 10th - 13th (Monday - Thursday) and was just wondering if somebody could suggest where to go?

Thanks to all who reply!

There are 2 near Wells that I know of. One leaves from Kennebunkport and the other from Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. Both are a 4.5 - 5.5 hour excursion.

The boat that leaves from Kennebunkport is a larger and nicer boat, however the trips were completely booked when we tried to go. www.firstchancewhalewatch.com/nickschance.php

We ended up taking the one from Perkins Cove. Although it's a very small boat, we had a wonderful time. www.deborahannwhalewatch.com

If I were to to it again, I'd take the one out of Kennebunkport, simply beacause the boat is roomier and looks more comfortable. Just make sure you make a reservation a few days before you want to take the trip. And yes, we did see whales and were completely in awe of seeing these wonderful creatures in their natural habitat.

Please post when you're back and let us know how your trip was. Enjoy!
