Learn more about whales while exploring the inside of a 43' long, life-sized, inflatable, humpback whale! Register in advance for each child age 5 and older in one of four half-hour time slots.

Register for one of the four-time slots to learn more about humpback whales! Click on one of the times listed below to register.

Only registered kids, ages 5 and up, will get to go inside the whale.

The Whalemobile is based on Nile, an adult female humpback whale that lives in the North Atlantic (NA). In the Western NA, humpbacks are named after marks on their tails. Nile has a large black line on the left side of her tail that looks like the Nile River. Nile was born in 1987 and spends much of every summer feeding off the coast of MA. She has had 6 calves in the past and is due for a calf this year. Join us to learn about how humans and whales are similar and find out if, in fact, Nile is a new mom this year!

There will be activities for families and younger kids. Younger children may be allowed to 'peek inside' if there is time in the end.
