Lsst time around, we looked at the fun and educational lobster boat tours you can enjoy on a Kennebunkport getaway. Did you know you can go on a Kennebunkport whale watching cruise, too?
It’s true – you can! In fact, one of the lobster tour companies we mentioned last time also offers whale watching. Nick’s Chance Whale Watching Cruises, tours offered by First Chance Whale Watch, are available to reserve late May through October each year.
If you’ve never experienced a whale watch tour, you may not realize how exciting and entrancing it can be. I’ve had the experience and I was rooted in place, unable to take my eyes from what I was witnessing.
Your Kennebunkport whale watching tour will take you to the feeding grounds of a variety of whales. These include Finback Whales, Humpback Whales, and Minkes, too. Rare Blue Whales and endangered Right Whales are also on the itinerary.
Of course, whales are wild animals. There’s no guarantee you’ll see each of the whales listed above. Your First Chance Whale Watch captain knows the feeding habits and places of all these whales, however. If anyone can get you a chance to see them, he will!
Your Kennebunkport whale watching tour will take place aboard Nick’s Chance. Nick’s Chance is 87 feet long with plenty of space for everyone to get to the rail for a good look and pictures.
You won’t go hungry, either.
Nick’s Chance has a galley on board offering snack items, light breakfast and lunch fare, as well as soda and bottled water. You can also bring your own food and drink along – but no glass containers or coolers, please. The ship is also equipped restrooms and the latest safety and navigational equipment, so you can rest assured.
