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!

There were really rough seas today and the crew proffered sea sickness tablets to everyone on boarding. I loved every minute of the journey out when the ship was cutting through six foot waves. It did mean that we were confined inside initially as you would have needed full oilskins to survive the journey without a thorough soaking. When we... More

The boat we rode out on was very nice and comfortable. You can sit outside or inside out of the sun. It didn't take too long to get out to see the whale. We stopped in a great spot to see the whale right by the boat.
