We are so, so glad we chose this attraction. It was the most wonderful four hours we have spent. The Motor Vessel is awesome, and with five engines pushing a jet propulsion system we really did speed across the water to the area where whales are normally seen. Along the way a sharp eyed Captain spotted a Basking Shark which... More

Perfect weather, except for the rolling fog. That didn't stop 4 whales from putting on quite a display of blows, fin slapping, and diving. Narrator of the trip was very informative and kept the kids engaged. Great crew and and fast vessel made for a fantastic voyage.

This is the largest boat we've ever been on for whale watching. It was wonderful because everyone had plenty of room to see the whales regardless of which side they were on. It was sunny and warm in the harbor but soon it chilled and got very foggy. Visibility was so poor that I was resigned to not seeing a... More

What an amazing trip!!! We saw three types of whales close to the boat! It was wonderful to watch them swim, dive, and eat! The staff was friendly and knowledgable! They let us know exactly where to look to see the whales and often stopped the boat so everyone could get a good look! Would love to go again!

Awesome!!! My family of five had a great time. We were lucky, the weather was perfect & the whales were out. The guide points out the whales and the boat gets as close as it safely can so you can see them. It was fun and educational. You can sit inside or outside. They sell snacks on board, but also...

We had such a great time. The staff was so friendly and the narrator was hysterical. We saw so much and learned so much. It's amazing being so close to some of the most majestic animals in the world.

I have always wanted to go whale watching and I am glad I booked with them! The crew were nice and they tried their best to get us some views of whales and the beaches! Even though we did not see that many, it was still a great exprience and a good value. Bring layers because it does get chilly... More

The logisitcs of the tour are run very well. You are kept well informed during the trip. We did not see any whales breach but I guess that was just our bad luck but the team does their best to get to the locations where the whales are. I suffered motion sickness so bear this in mind and come prepared... More

We had a great time on the Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruise! My husband and I were on our 30th anniversary trip and I booked this based on the reviews and the fact that I've always wanted to go on one of these trips! My husband wasn't as eager as I was, but agreed to go since he knew how much... More
