Any time we have an out of town guests I take them on this tour to get a water view of Chatham, it's history and of course the seals! It's even better when shark week is on the discovery channel. It's an 1 1/2 hour tour that starts with a trolley ride to the boat. I always put sun screen... More

We did see seals but low tide might be a better time to go on the cruise...I'd think more seal would be on the sand bars..so you could see more then just their heads poking out.

Took the trip yesterday with my son. Boat ride was a ton of fun! Enjoyed that the most. Captain was nice enough but obviously not as informative as a naturalist on board would have been regarding seals. So that was disappointing. But despite it, I would still recommend it as it is you do get to see the seals and... More

We have been to the Cape many times with our kids and wanted to try a seal tour instead of going deep sea fishing. The cost was comparable to the fishing trip, cheaper than other tour companies, and we all had a great time. The kids loved the trolley ride to the cove, the boat was clean, there were only... More

We had reservations to do their 2 pm seal cruise, at 1:00 we received a phone call and they said that they needed to cancel. After a long trip to get there, it was so disappointing to now have no seal cruise to do. We called the Blue Claw and they could accommodate us and we had an awesome time... More

Took 4 kids and 3 adults on a Tuesday afternoon. The college student working the phones and desk was very friendly and helpful. The short trolley ride to the dock was a bit of extra fun. The boat was clean and our captain friendly- told us more about Chatham than the seals but it is fascinating how Chatham has changed... More

I went on this tour because all the locals say it's the best. Well, it absolutely is. I guarantee that you will see at least 100 seals, and learn about the unique landscape Chatham has to offer on the coastline. This is perfect for a couple, family, or even alone. It's both an exciting and relaxing experience. If you have... More

We just took the beachcomber seal watch tour yesterday. The small boat, with a very knowledgeable captain, motored us into the center of a huge group of seals who capered and dove and swam under the boat, or kept their watchful eyes on us from a distance. It was great fun, for me and my 13 and 9 year old... More
