Whale watching, July & August. Whale Watching occurs in many ports in and around New England. The port of Galilee is no exception. The ocean waters off our coast are exposed to warm water eddies that break off from the Gulf Stream. Waters in mid summer can reach temperatures in the high 70’s. It is in these warm waters where the majestic Finback Whales come to feed. On a Whale watch trip you might see other whales such as Humpbacks, Minke, Pilot, False Killer, and even a Sei whale. The warm waters also attract giant ocean sunfish, sharks, tuna and marlin. Portuguese man of war, Loggerhead leatherback and loggerhead turtles also might be seen, as well as and also many varieties of dolphin.
We also operate a tackle store offering tackle, bait, ice, snacks and t-shirts. We also sell saltwater fishing licenses.
