This wasn't the largest boat in the fleet but we had plenty of room to fish and weren't packed in like sardines which was really nice. My husband was allowed to... More

I went out on their Super Thursday special. For the price, this is the best fishing possible. At first, I thought this was going to be one of those places that packs the boat full of people to maximize their profits, but I was completely mistaken. There were about 10-15 people fishing but there is room on the boat for... More

As Forrest Gump might say, whale watching is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. If you’re lucky, there’ll be plenty of whales. Or there might not be. The good news is, the tour operators cooperate with one another, and pass on the best places to go on the day. So there’s a reasonable... More

This summer Yankee Fleet is paired with Captain Bill's company, in the center of Gloucester and much easier to find than the Yankee Dock. The two-level boat was not crowded, had areas covered and in the open on the upper deck, and inside & as well as a small outside area on the lower deck. Light meals were served at... More

My husband had never been on a whale watch and for our wedding anniversary I booked the 1:30 trip with Yankee Fleet on 7/8. From about 1986-1997 my parents took me on a Yankee Fleet Whale Watch every summer - it's one of my favorite childhood memories. I wanted this to be a grand experience for my husband; it did...

We had pre-bought tickets a couple of months ahead and decided to go at the end of September. The day we reserved turned out to be blowing pretty hard and they called us early in the day to let us know it was cancelled. We went back and forth on rebooking the following day, but decided at the last minute.... More

Very informative and fun trip. Captain and crew take the time to protect the whales and give those aboard a great experience. We have been boaters for amny years but the naturalist on board was well informed and we learned alot. Gloucester is also a very good stop with good food at the Causway and an easy walk to see...

A perfect weather day. A clean, comfortable boat. A pleasant, informative crew. A great setting to visit New England's biggest residents. Whales and more whales. They are here to breed, care for their young and, I'm sure, to revisit old haunts. But for how long? Take the time to share this treasure with your family and yourself. Don't let it... More
