I took this tour with my husband recently. We were highly impressed by the knowledgable and entertaining guide and the sheer number of friendly seals of all shapes and sizes bobbing about in the water close to the boat. The boat was small and we didn't feel like we were on a packaged commercial tour. It was a relaxing and... More

Small boat - which was nice. Yes, you need to wade into the water to climb aboard, so be prepared for that. Boat went fast and kicked up quite a spray, so if you mind getting wet, make sure you sit in the front (don't worry, once you get to the seals you can get up and walk around). Captain... More

Great seal tour! Take a lunch and plan to picnic on the private beach area. See the seals then stop for a lunch then jump back onto the boat for home.

We had a great time on our seal watch excursion. Capt Keith was very informative and funny. A great way to get up close and personal with the seals. Wear sandals as you have to wade in about knee high water to get the boat. A great way to spend a couple of hours. Made for a nice afternoon. Glad... More

Wonderful way to spend an afternoon aboard the Rip Ryder. The 90 minute seal tour on the Rip Ryder is fabulous. We took our grandchildren for the afternoon. They loved it. Captain Keith is knowledgeable and gets the boat really close to the seals. We learned so much about the seals and their habitat. You have to board in the... More

What's not to love? If you love being on the water and love the gorgeous scenery of the Atlantic/Cape you will love this experience. Oh yeah, the seals are great too! We have been blessed with a fantastic week of weather here on the Cape. Our family was a little tired of the beach and needed to take a break... More

The family and I had the pleasure of experiencing the seal tour with Captain Keith and his crew. The best part for me was the personal nature of the tour. It's a smaller boat so you really get an intimate experience. Captain Keith is also highly knowledgeable about the seals and had plenty of interesting facts to share. Not to... More

Captain Keith was very informative and most entertaining. The Seal tour was 90 minutes. Our group of 14 learned about the area and the habits of these beautiful mammals. We also learned about how they are now tracking sharks on the Cape and this was Shark week. Highly recommend this tour with Captain Keith. There are parking spots reserved for... More

Went with my daughter a budding Marine Biologist on 8-1-13 What a fun and educational trip. Captain Keith and mom Jan were both funny with their New England sense of humor, and very knowledgable. It was clear the whole family has a respect for the seals and their enviroment. Jan was not happy when a competitors boat came flying in... More
