At the peak of whale watching season in Cape Cod Bay, we knew we wanted to go for the private charter. The bigger ships are less expensive, but we wanted to be closer to the water and have ample opportunity for some great sea level photos. Boy were we happy about our choice. Chad was an incredible guide, has extensive... More

I have been on several whale watches over the years on larger vessels. I went out on SeaSalt Charter's boat for the first time 3 years ago and the experience is something you can't even imagine! Every whale watch is very different, but being on a smaller boat is truly amazing. I have been out with SeaSalt Charters on 3... More

And explained The weather was a bit "iffy" heading towards the date we had booked our trip, but Chad kept in regular touch with us to keep us updated on likelihood of getting out, or perhaps needing to rearrange days etc. We did manage to get out on the day booked, and what a brilliant time we had. Chad explained... More

I have been on at least 50 commercial whale watches (yes, I love whales!) and SeaSalt Charters has been the most amazing experience of them all! You get an up close and uninterrupted (no one pushing you out of the way to get a look) trip off shore to marvel at these magnificent creatures. Chad knows his stuff, keeps you... More

Having been on many of the larger whale watching charters, I thought a private charter would be a pretty amazing experience! After much research, I booked with SeaSalt Charters out of Provincetown and so glad I did! The trip was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! There were an abundance of Humpbacks feeding on the sand lance in the waters. They spent no time... More

After a good bit of research online our family group of four adults decided to book a private whale watch trip with Captain Chad Avellar, owner and operator of SeaSalt Charters. After initially contacting him online we spoke by phone to work out the details and found Chad to be genuinely interested in providing the best experience possible when booking... More

We didn't have the best of luck with the whales since we only managed to see one humpback called Nile. However, Captain Chad did everything in his power to make it great. We followed that whale for hours and saw plenty of awesome moments. Chad was knowledgeable and friendly. This trip is somewhat expensive, but way better than the big... More

I was really looking forward to this outing but we had a disappointing experience. Our guide didn't know about the whales and couldn't tell us anything about them. We eventually saw one that the big boats had found but after waiting to get a closer look we got a quick glimpse and then the captain took off. We got back... More

I highly recommend Capt. Chad with Sea Salt Charters! We only had a few days to go out and see the whales. Chad went above and beyond to get us out to see them. We were on the boat with 2 other people so we were not fighting cowards to see the whales and we could get much closer than... More
