Visiting from the UK and first time I went on a Whale watch. The boat was roomy, clean and provided food and drink if needed. There were also bathrooms on board. he weather was warm and perfect. 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.

This was our third trip with this company in the past 10 years. We were not disappointed. We choose the Hyannis Whale Watcher cruise because they have a great crew and a very knowledgable expert on board that knows the whales, and explaines their behavior is a very clear way. On this cruise we encountered two yearling logging whales and... More

A well run operation, with viewings of lots of whales and plenty of time to enjoy them. Easy to view from wherever you are on ship. Only gripe is extortionate parking fee, when trip is expensive. But still 5 stars - because there are whales!!!

This is the second year in a row we have done this cruise and we were not disappointed. Again we got to see a good number of whales, including two amazing full body breaches right next to the boat. Kudos again to the guide and the captain, who made it a great experience for all, positioning the boat well and... More

We were very excited about this trip and although many people said it would be better to go to Provincetown we were very pleased to have chosen this trip, which we booked from the UK. The whole boat trip was interesting, with great views and a fun ride but the whale watching was AMAZING. Before we had hardly reached the... More
