Tuckamore Aviation has been expanding their helicopter photo flights to the coastal waters of Stellwagen Bank and Cape Cod Bay with an unforgettable encounter with several of the local whale species! From the critically endangered North Atlantic Right whales to the Humpback, Fin and Minke whales that populate these waters from April to November, Cape Cod is consistently ranked as one of the world’s top 10 whale watching destinations.
Tuckamore Aviation is the only helicopter company in New England to offer whale watching from above. Once in the air, its smooth sailing in our five-seat helicopter outfitted with safety flotation equipment. The AS-350B3 helicopter allows us to cover an extensive area where we can find and view multiple whales in a short amount of time.
Tuckamore’s helicopters are able to safely hover high above a pod of whales allowing everyone onboard to capture the complete picture of how they live and interact without disturbing them. With unlimited visibility over their favorite feeding ground, you’ll quickly spot breaching whales and other sea life including seals, dolphins, sharks, tuna and turtles.
Our mission is to offer a world-class whale watching experience that allows everyone to discover the natural aquatic beauty that exists so close to Boston. Using the perfect aerial platform, it doesn't matter if you are an amateur, enthusiast, or professional photographer, being able to view these majestic creatures from above is simply breathtaking.
"We chartered Jeff to fly us out to some of the whale feeding grounds off cod. Having already seen whales from the boats off Cape Ann in Gloucester, we thought we would get a true sense of their size from above which we did! We also saw some basking sharks. We had a great day and took away great memories and pictures." - Andrew J. (2017 passenger)
