So you want to see seals? Get a tour of the area by boat? Have a great 1 1/2? Then this is the tour. Good prices, great skipper, and smaller amount of people. Meet the shuttle at one spot with lots of parking, then get whisked away to the boat. Children under 12 must wear life vests. So close to... More

Our Captain was Skip and he was great. We chose to go at low tide, and were rewarded with seeing many seals just laying around the sandbar. We also saw hundreds in the water. This was our favorite thing we did on Cape Cod.

We went on a 90 minute tour to see seals and area landmarks. The captain was great, no too many people. Just enough time!

Capt. Jim was great, very knowledgeable and informative. Our trip was wonderful, saw many seals, and learned alot about the history of the area. Weather was perfect, calm ride.

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
