Participated in White Shark/Whale Expedition 2014. Although it was too foggy for the spotter plane to locate sharks, we saw many whales. My daughters and I had a great time.

We had a fabulous day on the whale watcher cruise. September is a great month to enjoy a less crowded cruise. As soon as we reached stellwagon bank we started to sight whales. They were all, around us for the duration of the trip until we had to head back. The naturalist was amazing. There were also a couple of... More

My first whale watch trip and had numerous sightings of the gigantic humpback whales. Well worth the money spent. The boat was not crowded which was nice and allowed better visibility. I wore a sweatshirt jacket and another lightweight jacket, because it is cooler out on the ocean. This location was easy to get to with minimal traffic.

This must rate as one of the best whale watches we have been on over many years of whale watching. Have tried all the companies from Gloucester to Cape Cod. This is the best company for the experience we had today. Very pleasant staff from boarding to on board. Not too long getting to see the whales which were everywhere... More

Saw about 50 whales, sometimes 3 at a time. Excellent accurate narration of what we were seeing and whale life.

Had considered whalewatching out of Boston, but didn't get round to it. Found a leaflet for this one in our hotel in Yarmouth, booked online (very handy!) and are so glad we did!! The experience was incredible - fast boat out to the Stellwagen Bank, then we had nearly 45minutes in the company of several humpback whales (including a calf)... More

Very enjoyable and educational excursion. Very clean boat with knowledgeable staff. We had a beautiful sunny day and saw many humpback and minke whales. They came so close to the boat it was unbelievable. We have done this tour many times and have never been disappointed.

A great emotion to watch the whales in their habitat. Kids just loved it. The tour is 3.5 hrs. They give you all the time to watch different types of whales. The boat has a bar where they serve food and beverages at a very good price.
