Over the years, Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises has carried tens of thousands of children on our whale watches. This post was written to offer some insights to help you and your little ones enjoy your four-hour whale watching adventure! You will see that the word prepare figures prominently into this blog. We encourage you to be pro-active! The youngest whale watch passenger in recent memory was seven weeks old! Infants may even do better than their older siblings on boats. The ocean’s liquid state, and gentle rocking often puts them at ease; no need to wonder why! Make sure you bring a well-stocked travel bag and remember the sunblock and protective clothing; including a sun hat! Strollers that fold are permitted, but we do not allow double-wide or oversized models as they are too large. The Whale Watcher has a full service galley with food and drinks for all ages, but you may also pack snacks for your kids. Coolers up to six-pack sized are permitted, but must be stored out of the way. Before your trip, fuel up on plenty of water, and lighter foods which are easy to digest. We hope that this post helps you and your family prepare for the adventure of a lifetime! Please post any other questions you might have and we will respond. Others with the same questions will appreciate it! The crew looks forward to seeing you all aboard for a safe and fun whale watch!
