When my kids heard we were going whale watching in Plymouth, they were floored. First, they were scared to be so close to such massive creatures, then, they couldn’t wait! It was the highlight of our Plymouth Cape Cod vacation!  We received tickets to facilitate this post.Captain John Whale Watching Plymouth MA (9)We departed from Plymouth Harbor in the early afternoon on our Captain John Whale Watching Trip. We were surprised at how calm the water was as we rode out to sea. The scenery was breathtaking as we made our way out to the Stellwagen Bank, a little more than 1 hour out into the ocean. The trip didn’t seem like a hour, even with young kids, everyone was enjoying the ride and views.
