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

We took the Hyannis Whale Watching Cruise out of Barnstable Harbor and had an awesome experience! The staff were all very nice and helpful before, during and after the trip. Everything was very well organized and managed. Including a naturalist onboard to identify the whales and give helpful narration and explanation was an added bonus. It made the whole trip... More

This summer I decided I wanted to see a whale watch on my vacation to Cape Cod. I took the closest whale watch to me, which was Hyannis whale Watch, which is actually in Barnstable Harbor about 5 miles from Hyannis. The tour lasted about 3 hours (insert Gilligan's Island theme here) They have two tours per day, one in... More

I was a bit leery on getting onto a ship and going out to sea to find whales. For $48 ride it sounded a little hokey to me. But, the views going out were awesome- the staff was fantastic and the whales were there!!!! We saw easily 9-12 whales on our journey which lasted about 3 hours. The staff had... More

The crew seemed to really care about the whales we saw. They knew the whales by name and had stories to tell about all of them. It was a wonderful experience and I recommend Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises to anyone going to Cape Cod.

We have been on whale watching cruises in other places and none compare to this. The boat is comfortable and the facilities great. Jon was our naturalist and his knowledge was unsurpassable. We saw loads of humpbacks at close quarters and learned so much about whales as a species and about Salt (a very special whale) in particular.
