We did have hoodies and still were very cold. We r from upstate ny where we r used to freezing weather. I would... More

Did not see as many whales as we would have liked. The Company organizing the trip was professional and great.

We just came back from Cape Cod, and had a wonderful time, also thanks to Hyannis Whale Watching. There were not too many people on the boat, so we were able to go from side to side and see the whales. We have seen many of them, some really close to the boat. The crew was very helpful and knowledgeable... More

Booked one of their cruises with the possibility of seeing nothing at all since I happen to have that type of luck. I never would've believed in a million years how this one single cruise would change the way I see the world around us! It took approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to head out into the Atlantic. Seems like... More

Ha ha, whale pun. Ok, enough of my silliness. We were pretty excited to go out whale watching but in no way could we have known how AMAZING it would be! The boat itself in nice and stable. We saw a pack of seals on the way out, which was cool. Once we got to the whale zone we were... More

This was an exceptional experience: we knew we would see whales but never thought so many. About 30 to 40, the biologist guide told us. It is very well organized since everybody stays at his side of the boat and the captain turns this boat so that everyone can see lots of whales. Fantastic boat trip ! Reservation went perfect:...

While vacationing in Cape Cod recently we hoped it wasn't too late to see the whales before they migrated South. We went on the Hyannis Whale Watcher boat and enjoyed the trip thoroughly. Although the weather was a might chilly for us Floridians, the boat was relatively empty and the whale watching was enjoyable. The naturalist on board was very... More

Booked tour in Bar Harbor that was cancelled due to rough weather. I was heartbroken, until I found out tours were offered in Hyannis. It was a beautiful day! We saw several different types of whales. The staff was pleasant. The bar staff were nice. The ship was less than 1/4 full, so there was plenty of room to move... More

We have done 3 whale watch trips on the East Coast and this was the best by far. The only downside was the $15 parking lot! Everthing else was excellent. Good briefings and a fun trip out to the Bank. The boat is faster than most and covered the water in an exciting way. Bar and staff very helpful. Finally,... More
