First Chance Whale Watch offers whale watching tours and scenic lobster cruises. Hop aboard “Nick’s Chance” and venture out to sea on a whale watching tour. These tours are led by Captain Gary, who has been with First Chance for more than 20 years! Each tour is 4.5 hours long, so it’s a great way to spend an afternoon on the Atlantic. Tours begin in May and end in October. Rates are $48 per adult ticket and $28 per child ticket.
Join the crew of "Nick's Chance" to go out looking for whale in the Gulf of Maine. Also take a cruise on the scenic lobster boat " Kylie's Chance"
