Summer at the Sanctuary at Stellwagen Bank

On Friday June 29, Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, Boston Harbor Cruises (BHC), and the New England Aquarium (NEAq) hosted a special press conference event honoring Stellwagen Bank, one of the top 10 whale-watching spots in the world.

BHC debuted their newest Whale Watching vessel, Sanctuary, which pays tribute to New England’s only National Marine Sanctuary and the majestic creatures that call it home.
