We find we get a $4 per person discount for going with Island Quest Marine Whale Watch, Bob also got a discount for being a senior. The entry to the boat is along the pier in the photo below, and down a somewhat steep ramp, depending on how far out the tide is.
There's lots of seating onboard, and two levels where you can view the whales outdoors. The trip took us out through a gap to near Deer Island, where we saw whales, seals, American Bald Eagle and other birds.
Here's a video of a whale coming up:
Here's a photo of a whale spouting:
I had fun taking pictures and movies. The back part of the trip we were on the upper deck.
Here's a photo of the fisherman working a sardine net:

After the whale watch, we tried Gables for lunch. We asked about halibut and found none in stock; their fish for the day on offer was salmon. So I had a lovely chicken burger sans cheese and Bob a hamburger with cheese and bacon. Very tasty. The waitress was very nice. Tried out the Moosehead ale, very tasty.
After a brief nap, Bob and I attended St. Andrews Catholic church mass at 7pm. I fell asleep early, short story and new scene in work.
