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

Decided on a last minute Seal watching tour, was able to get in without any issue. Both the shuttle bus and boat had plenty of room for what seemed to be a "full" tour. We moved about the boat while idling to see the seals on both sides of the vessel. There was plenty of space, which is a novelty... More

Our family recently took a seal cruise on the Beachcomber. Luckily for us we chose a calm and sunny day. Not only is the scenery of the tour breathtaking, the tour guide was extremely informative-not only about the seals but also about the history of Chatham. We saw numerous (hundreds?) seals and at points were within 5 feet. They are... More

Beachcomber seal tours was a pleasant surprise. My sister suggested it and I'm glad we did it on my "staycation". The boat is open, so bring your sunscreen and hat, but the tour is an hour and a half so you won't get fried. The scenery on the way to the seals is gorgeous, from the sandbars to the mansions...
