“Great trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

WE saw about a dozen humpback whales. It was really a fun adventure. Our captain was very aggressive chasing these enormous creatures...loved that!

“Awesome whale watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

My husband and I did a whale watch for our 50th birthdays. It was an amazingly breathtaking experience. It was a beautiful day and we saw humpback whales. Tornado and her calf. It was as if they put a show on just for us!! Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to spend in the town. It is so quaint . We walked around and had lunch at the Topside Bar and after the watch had dinner at the Seagrill. Both awesome meals of lobster and very reasonably priced!! Great day!!

“Incredible Whale Watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

The ride was smooth, the staff friendly and knowledgable, and they even let me my bring my dog onboard1 But the best part was the amount of whale sightings. We saw Minke whales breach, and full breaches of humpback whales, along with fin flapping. Amazing time.

“First rate whale watch company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I have taken groups of college students on Cape Ann Whale Watches for almost 30 years. Each year we experience an incredible trip by a company that is concerned not only about the customers but also the whales. This company has been instrumental in the research on the whales of area and a naturalist accompanies every trip to provide an educational interpretation of of the experience. We have seen a whole range of whale behavior without harassing the whales as I have seen other boats do. Excellent, friendly customer service and an all round first rate, professional whale watch company.

“Whale watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

It was a blast, the crew was knowledgeable and friendly, ready to answer questions. The trip was wonderful, saw several whales and a shark. We saw them breach and slap the water with their fins, it was amazing. The whales were busy feeding and then would entertain us with some antics.
It was my first time out and I look forward to being a repeat customer.
