whale watchGranite State Whale Watch, Rye NH
Wednesday, June 19, 2019

Join us on our first ever community trip out to sea.  This community trip will meet at Rye Harbor (1870 Ocean Blvd (Rte 1-A), Rye, NH 03870) at 8:15am for a whale watch expedition (4-5 hour trip). Boat departs promptly at 8:30am! Transportation to Rye Harbor is NOT provided. Your whale watch boarding pass is not an admission to a show, but rather an opportunity to observe wild animals which, on a worldwide basis, are quite rare. Whether we sight these marvelous creatures is entirely up to the whales; the probability is quite excellent. Granite Sate Whale Watch has a 99% sighting record. Every whale watch is a true expedition rather than a sightseeing excursion. Parking is available on-site; the State of NH owns and operates the lot and charges $5.00 per car (cash only) and $10.00 per RV or bus to park for the day.

COST
Adult $34
Senior $27
Child $22 (Under 4 is free)
Registration DEADLINE is June 14, 2019
