Awesome!!! My family of five had a great time. We were lucky, the weather was perfect & the whales were out. The guide points out the whales and the boat gets as close as it safely can so you can see them. It was fun and educational. You can sit inside or outside. They sell snacks on board, but also...

We had such a great time. The staff was so friendly and the narrator was hysterical. We saw so much and learned so much. It's amazing being so close to some of the most majestic animals in the world.

I have always wanted to go whale watching and I am glad I booked with them! The crew were nice and they tried their best to get us some views of whales and the beaches! Even though we did not see that many, it was still a great exprience and a good value. Bring layers because it does get chilly... More

The logisitcs of the tour are run very well. You are kept well informed during the trip. We did not see any whales breach but I guess that was just our bad luck but the team does their best to get to the locations where the whales are. I suffered motion sickness so bear this in mind and come prepared... More

We had a great time on the Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruise! My husband and I were on our 30th anniversary trip and I booked this based on the reviews and the fact that I've always wanted to go on one of these trips! My husband wasn't as eager as I was, but agreed to go since he knew how much... More

We saw so many whales and the guides were very informative. They knew the whales by name and gave much information on each one, who, how old, personality, etc.

What a fantastic experience. With a naturalist on board who could give lots of information about the whales, this is a definite trip to take. The season was coming to a close as the whales head off down to the Caribbean to breed, then return with their calves. The captain gave plenty of opportunity to see the whales, even close... More

This whale watch is abit pricey, but well worth it. It takes off from Barnstable Harbor on the North side of the Cape. This is the first whale watch I have been on in Massachusetts. This was the last whale watch of the season for this ship. My friends and I were not expecting to see much. We were mistaken.... More
