Monday Madness: Win a Family Whale Watching Cruise

Last Updated on

Whale Watching Newport Landing

To kick off Animal Week here at Trekaroo, we are excited to offer your family the chance to win a family whale watching cruise with Newport Landing Whale Watching.

We recently sent one of our assistant blog editors, Janel Murray, out with her family on their whale watching adventure.  A few highlights from her trip:

I am embarrassed to admit this, but every time I watch a whale or dolphin show at Sea World, I get a little choked up.  Just being that close to those massive beings, seeing the shine on their backs, and the grace of their movements, makes me emotional.  So when I saw these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat, I wanted to cry like a baby.


Read the details of  Janel’s whale watching review.
