The boat, crew and biologist were all great, but it felt like the captain just didn't want to pursue the type of multi-whale encounter you hear about - and most guests were expecting and hoping for. Fairly early out we piggy-backed off another boat already in contact with a lone whale named "Bayou." She's a recovering victim of a boating... More

We had a spectacular day for our whale watch. We did a morning reservation which was great for us as the boat was not completely packed and we had a great view of the two humpback whales. Our naturalist, Jodi, gave a great narration and education on whales and on the individual species. We will definitely go on 7 Seas... More

The weather could not have been better. We saw three humpbacks that entertained us and three different sharks. On the way back in we encountered a different species of whale and one truly incredible yacht!

We booked a morning sail and everything went flawlessly. Gorgeous weather (though they have no control, it just worked in our favor) and calm waters. We saw 7 different whales, all humpback. We got a lot of fluke pictures but no actual breaching, which would've been cool...but again, this isn't under the control of anyone on the boat. I was... More

We came to Massachusetts to visit Boston and to see whales. One of the things my wife had always wanted to see was whales in the wild. A few years ago, we went to the Caribbean to go whale watching. All we saw were pilot whales and to be honest... they're not as impressive as the humpback whales. A search... More

Disappointingly my reservation of 3 weeks was cancelled without explanation, though forecast was great! While company offered the afternoon cruise, scheduling did not work for us. So disappointing

BJS44131, I'm very sorry for the disappointment in us canceling your trip. Our goal on each and every trip is to give our passengers the best possible experience with the whales. Recently, the whales have been quite far... sometimes in excess of 30 miles. We never mind going the extra distance if that's what it takes to get the best... More

While one might hope for sunny skies, smooth waters and a plethora of whales, that doesn't always happen. It took about 2 hours and 10 minutes to seek out whales. The air was cool and overcast skies. Seas were a bit rough. However none of this is in the captain or crew's control! When we did finally find a whale,... More

This top rated outfit took us directly to Stellwagon Bank to see the whales. Saw 7 whales up close, rented binoculars and saw other wildlife at a distance. Great narration by the naturalist, educational. Loved it!

Great day for a cruise to Stellwagon Bank to see the whales. Saw 7 whales that surfaced 30-40 times. Great narration by the naturalist. Very informative. Our group loved the cruise and found the staff to be very professional. Will go again!
