Ocean Spirit is a high-tech, eco-friendly sailing catamaran with a maximum capacity of 55 passengers. Whalewatch Sail Deluxe is led by Certified Marine Naturalists for fun and informative interpretation of humpback whale behaviors and characteristics. The additions of lunch on board, unlimited soda and juice, as well as a complimentary alcoholic beverage make this ecotour a deluxe whale watching experience.

We sail when possible depending on weather conditions or whale activity and may need to use our engines for the safety of the animals, in accordance with our “Be Whale Aware” policies for safe and sustainable humpback whale viewing.

Whale sightings are guaranteed or go again free on another whalewatch of equal or lesser value within one year. We are proud of our 97% sighting success rate.

Children 4 and under are free.
