The website states that they are so confident you will see whales they will take you out again for free if you dont and they claim a 95% success rate at spotting... More

We had a fantastic whale watching experience - group feeding, breaches, mothers with calves - it was brilliant. The crew gave us lots of interesting information about the whales and their behaviour, and they kept us in the middle of all the action - everywhere we looked there were whales. Definitely worth doing, we're so glad we went.

We hadn't planned to go whale watching, but some locals at a restaurant told us that the whales were still around and so we should consider it. We're very glad that we took their advice and invested the time and money to do it. The staff in charge of our cruise were knowledgeable and friendly. When the first whale was... More

We have been on a few whale tours before but nothing like this. The staff was great and very informative and the whales were overly abundant. Everywhere you looked there were whales and the staff was very good with pointing them out and keeping us in the middle of it all. The season is over until spring now though, sorry.

This was something we will never forget. We were worried we may not see any whales - but we need'nt have been concerned. They were everywhere!

The whale watch cruise was on a perfect day and we enjoyed the trip immensely. The crew was excellent including the Naturalist who was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. We saw several whales, blue sharks and other notable Cape Cod Bay wildlife. A definite highly recommended trip from Barnstable Harbor.

Let me say first that you may NOT see any (or many) whales. The trip may not be as exciting for those who don't see any, but we were lucky enough to time it right when the whales were very, very hungry and boy did they put on a show! There were so many that we could look in any... More

I have taken this trip several times and it never fails to amaze me. If whale watching is your thing and you're in Cape Cod when the whales are there, you must take this tour. I have gone with this company in August and in September, when the whales are bubble feeding and the crew is great at finding the... More

We have been fortunate to go on several whale watching tours around the world and we saw more whales on this tour than all the previous ones put together. It is a good fast (jet) boat which means you spend less time getting to the whale grounds and more time in and amongst them and the propulsion method means you... More

We have been on many whale watches and this one is by far the best. The crew is very friendly and most knowledgeable about both the sea animals being observed and the history of the area. The satisfaction and safety of the guests is clearly a top priority to this team. The ship is vey well maintained and clean, with... More
