EXCELLENT is all we can say,Very Very Good effort on the part of Crew to make sure to see loads of whales and in no hurry. We saw the whales so closely and heaps of them,very well done commentary too and the captain made sure to go near every movement to capture the whales closely. Thank you,

The whales and the views were amazing. So great to see those animals in their natural habitat with information provided by a naturalist. My only qualm with this establishment was that after paying 98 for two to go on the whale watch we also had to pay 15 dollars to park in their parking lot. Not only did we pay... More

Tried to catch the first ride in the morning was really something..., everyone felt so sleepy. The ocean was calm and horizon was spectacular. I followed some of the comments by staying at the same spot but missed the very first sights of whales. Captain and crews were doing a great job staying neutral on most of sights to avoid... More

The only down-side to this tour was that it took up the better part of the day being a solid 4+ hours including boarding. That being said the cruise was genuinely awesome and included a ton of whale sightings. The naturalist on board did a great job of narrating the experience and it was incredible to see such massive creatures... More

We took the kids and had a awesome time. The weather was perfect and we saw many whales. We saw a double breach and a mother nursing her calf. The boat was only about half full so there was plenty of room to move around. The people on board were great and informative. So glad I finally went. was the... More

Our family has been on several whale watching excursions over the years, but this was by far our best experience. The crew was very knowledgeable and just as excited as the spectators while watching these beautiful animals. It was truly amazing to see and hear the Humpback whales. My 13 year old son and 11year old daughter were awestruck and... More

We went on this whale watch recently. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly. We saw 9 whales. The captain is patient in the pursuit of whales. He positions the boat so all passengers can see. It was a lovely day.

We were worried we would not see any whales. Since we were taking my sister and her husband and our 78 year old father we felt pressure to make sure they had a great experience. They loved it! Seeing, hearing, smelling :) the whales is impossible to put into words. We loved it and highly recommend this trip!

Went on several trips while visiting Cape Cod with friends, because one whale watch trip is never enough! Each trip was fantastic, full of spectacular sightings! Seeing whales in their natural habitat is exciting, but even more memorable is learning about each of the whales you're seeing...their names, their unique characteristics, sometimes stories about their family lineage or successful disentanglements....
