About

See a Spout, Watch Out! helps recreational boaters operate safely and responsibly around whales. This program is sponsored and implemented by the Whale and Dolphin Conservation, NOAA Fisheries Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office, and Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.

We offer presentations at boater safety courses in New England (or virtually for other regions) and  distribute resources throughout the Greater Atlantic Region (Maine through Virginia). Contact us to learn how you can get involved.

See A Spout’s catchy phrases will help you remember safe operational procedures and whale watching guidelines that will allow for a safer experience and help you view whales while respecting federal whale protection laws.
