Attraction Information

If watching whales on TV takes your breath away, just imagine how incredible it would be to see them close up with Whitby Whale Watching.

These boat trips off of the coast of Whitby do important conservation for the whales of the North Sea. Every year summer and autumn shoals of herring migrate to the coast of Yorkshire, bringing with them sharks, seals, dolphins, whales and birds to feed.

On one of these amazing tours you could see minke, sperm, humpback and northern whales as well as porpoise, bottle-nosed dolphins, jellyfish and sharks! There is plenty of life just underneath the waves that’s sure to surprise and excite you!

See this amazing sight from Yorkshire’s premier spot!

  • All boat tours are weather dependent
  • Data from sightings is provided to the Seawatch Foundation to monitor and research the whale, dolphin and porpoise population in the waters
  • The boat trips last 4 hours and goes many miles off shore
