I was quite skeptic of this turistic attractions. I tought, we will see one or two whales ... Instead a terrific experience, so many whales sorrounded our boat and we could see mother whales teaching how to catch fush to their baby whales. So many jumping in and out of the sea, all very exiting. I really enjoyed and get... More

The trip was great and the guide very knowledgeable about the whales we saw. It is the luck of the draw whether the whales will really put on a show or not, this day was not outstanding but not the fault of the the Cruse line. I will go again!

We took the morning cruise at the end of May, before school let out. It was very successful, first a single humpback close to Provincetown, then a whole pod of 8 adults and 2 calves at the bank. One calf was throwing a temper tantrum, tail slapping, breeching, and fin rolls, probably because mom was working with the pod to... More

My husband and I had never experienced a whale watch cruise and this company was simply the best. Clean boat, well trained knowledgeable crew, friendly, making the actual whale viewing awesome. From parking to sailing to departing everything was perfectly organized and pleasant.

A fabulous trip with an extremely knowledgeable crew. Just the right amount of "pointing out" sights on the way out to catch a glimpse of whales and once they were spotted equally good balance of information and facts. A terrific perfect fall day with my husband, son, daughter in law and 4 year old granddaughter. We ALL absolutely loved it... More

Absolutely fabulous trip to see these amazing creatures in their natural environment. We saw many humpbacks with their calves feeding and playing. Great boat speeds you out to the seabank with knowledgeable and friendly tcrew to ensure your trip is everything you expect and more. A lovely memory of a beautiful part of New England.

What an amazing trip with excellent, friendly, knowledgeable staff. We were very lucky to see between 15-20 hump back whales, some in groups of 2 or 3 as well as a mother and calf. The bubble feeding of 3 whales was an amazing site repeated over and over again as was the playing of the calf alongside its mother, clearly... More

So amazing to watch these creatures! We really lucked out, we saw 4 of them swimming in a group so choreographed, so beautiful. The trip was organized perfectly. Lots of fun for all ages.

We had an amazing trip to see the whales in New England! This was definitely worth the drive and money. We got to see a calf breech, a trio play around, and tremendous bubble feeding. The boat was clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I would absolutely go back to this company and recommend it to everyone!
