We've been on several whale watching cruises and this one was the best by far. The crew was so interactive with the guests, explaining what we were seeing, the history of body of water we were traveling in and just the air of loving their jobs. Some of the crew were interns at an oceanic program, another was a nature... More

My wife and I went on this trip on our honeymoon and had an absolute blast! We saw several humpback whales including a mother and her calf. It was a very neat experience and we are still talking about it weeks later.

My wife , son and I went on the Hyannis whale watch on June 20th. It was awesome!! I was a little worried about the distance from the whale watching area but the boat has 4 deisel jet engines with a top speed of 35 knots making the trip not bad at all. It also is better than the long... More

Recently took our junior high school age child and friend on a Hyannis Whale Watcher cruise and it was a wonderful experience all around. Parking is available at a lot next to the boat dock for $15. The boarding process is quick and easy. (I recommend checking out their web site for info on what you can/should bring with you... More

Food is available and resonalbly priced. Boat is very fast to get to the whales. Negatives: It had rained a little while before boarding and all of the... More

We really enjoyed our whale watch. The crew was great and the PA system was very clear and loud enough, which is not always the case on a whale watch. It was very informative too. We saw many whales including a little calf with her mom! We even were lucky to see quite a few breaches.. awesome for sure. The... More

Great way to spend time in Cape Cod. Friendly crew and very informative. Yes, we did see whales and they say you have a 99% chance of seeing them. The captain knows where to go and what to look for in order to find whales. The ship has a galley that serves food and drinks (including alcoholic). Restrooms on board... More

We took this boat trip twice this visit. Each time the whales were so close to the boat .The captain does such a fine job , turning the boat gently around so that the whales can be seen by everyone onboard . Both trips found finbacks . Incredibly graceful animals . Lots of humpback mothers and babies resting on the... More

I've always wanted to see whales in the wild, and this was a perfect opportunity. It was a beautiful day, the trip was well organised, and the boat was fast. It took about an hour to get to where the whales might be, "This isn't a zoo and the whales aren't trained. People ask where the whales are, how long... More
