The tour boat was not crowded or oversold. It was a nice trip but windy and a little cool, so take a jacket. The Hyannis bus service is available to ride out here, so you can avoid the parking fee. I chose this tour because...More

It is expensive but it pays off. Relaxing seeing whales, feeling the breeze in every part of your body, accompanied by a knowledgeable tour guide and a skillful captain. Nice way to spend a Sunday morning.

Call or email them to see if they will mail one to you. There should be contact information on the website. I don’t know of a specific online retailer.
