Once again, this trip is a success! On Wednesday 9/2 my son and I joined the 11:00am cruise. We were not disappointed! We saw many whales, many of whom were right next to the boat! The staff knew their names, and gave us so much valuable information over a clear speaker system. It is an incredible experience that is truly... More

We loved the whale watch we went on in late August. We saw a lot of whales, many of them feeding right next to the boat. We were even able to see them come up and look right into their mouths that were full of fish! The crew was very good at keeping us informed of where to look for... More

I can't even put in to words how wonderful this cruise was. I realize we were very lucky to see so many whales and babies doing so many different things - eating, playing and a FULL BREACH! The boat is big and you feel very secure. The day we went the water was quite calm and you could see the... More

This was a wonderful trip. The narrator was great. Educational too. The humpbacks were not where they normally were so the captain go on the radio and talked with local fisherman to find out where they were. So we had to hit further out but he wasted no time getting us there and we were not disappointed. We must have... More

The waters got choppy as we got to the site of the whales. I felt for the Poor people who had sea sickness.... More

4 of us took the tour. The boat was clean and well equipped. We printed our tickets online which made the boarding process very quick. The marine biologist onboard was excellent. We saw over 20 whales and all the data and sightings were recorded and used for further research.A great trip.

We have been taking cruises with Hyannis Whale Watcher for years and always have a great time and see plenty of whales. On the last trip the whales were breaching which was great. It's also a nice long boat cruise, but remember your Dramamine if you need it. We did the last trip without any and were all fine, but... More

We have been on a couple of whale watching tours, this was the best one yet. The boat was large and roomy, crew congenial, prices for the tour and on board reasonable, 4 hour trip with lots of whales, and a great naturalist.

All that we had hoped it would be. A comfortable boat, a great whale-loving crew, and plenty of whales doing cool things up close to the boat.

Amazing trip. Defo the most memorable part of our holiday. The crew were brilliant. A must do if on the cape. Would return to the cape in a heart beat just to go whale watching with these guys again.
