What a fabulous experience for my family's first whale watching expedition!!! The whales were plentiful & the crew was informative & helpful. Intern Dale was a wealth of information on marine life! We had an incredible day and hope to return one day very soon!!

Very friendly crew on board the whale watching ship. There was an intern doing research and a biologist on board telling you all about the whales you were seeing, We saw four whales and a few seals.

Went with my family with a 12 and 19 year old. Everyone loved the experience, it was definitely the highlight of our trip to cape cod! We saw several different whales, all of them where humpback whales. Everyone was extremely friendly, it didn't take long to board, and there was seating for those who wanted to sit inside. We sat...

My family and I were very excited to go on our first whale watch this past Sunday but it was not meant to be. All 300 or so passengers were boarded on the boat and ready to go when we could start to tell something wasn't right after we began running behind schedule. Turns out there was a problem with...

We took the 2 PM whale watch excursion and had a wonderful time watching 2 whales "play" near our boat. We had never gone on a whale-watch before and would love to do it again. The Naturalist-guide (Leah) was very informative, and made the trip interesting and fun. We returned to Plymouth Harbor at 6 PM. What a great way... More

Although I have been on several whale watches we ventured out again. This trip was amazing. I've seen 3 things I've never seen on a watch before. One was a whale breaching over and over again - what a sight! Second was this whale that seemed to be happy to see us it swam on one side of the boat... More
