What to wear and bring to be comfortable ?

All two hour whale watching tours should dress for possible cold, wet conditions!

For all whale watching trips you will need to dress in layers so that you can adjust as the temperatures change. Our boat is open for the best viewing possible when we are with the whales, that means we are exposed to the elements and when you factor in the wind chill and the potential for getting wet while we are searching for whales it can feel very cold. 


For trips departing between mid-November and mid June you can expect temperatures to be cold, between 40 and 50 degrees!  June through November will be a bit warmer with Temperatures between 50 and 60 degrees. So if you dress like you are going snow skiing you will be nice and warm and will have a great experience! 


On any whale watching trip at anytime of the year there can be spray from waves which might be heavy at times. Therefore we recommend raincoats, rain pants, warm hats and gloves on all of our whale watching trips,  year round.


Coastal Explorer trips are much different. You should expect cold temperatures in the range of 40 through 60 degrees from December through April . May through June we see 60 to 70 degrees temperatures and July through October we see very a nice 60 to 70 degrees with some trip up in the 80's


We provide life jackets for all ages but if your children have favorites you may bring it for them. Please bring your own water and any special snacks you might like. If you suffer from motion sickness you should prepare yourself as on most trips we will be going out to where the ocean is moving!
