Fantastic trip. Boat was full but there was plenty of room to view, and we really had a lotto look at. 25 whales were around the boat on and off and the kids were blown away. Majestic creatures. A highlight of our trip.

We've been with these folks before and loved the ease and ride out to the whale watching grounds. Our last trip we were lucky enough to see whales feeding. This time -- breaching! That's whale for jumping right out of the water! Absolutely awesome. As...More

For years we were skeptical about taking one of these whale watch cruises, well I was wrong. The boat was incredible, spacious, clean, and the Marine Biologist on board was simply amazing. She handled the huge group of customers like a ringmaster. But her experience...More

This was one of the highlights of our tour. The entire trip is about 3.5 hours, in a relatively fast boat, that allows about 2 hours of watching these enormous mammals. We were lucky to see about 25 whales in groups of 3-4 animals each...More

We would have been happy to see just one whale but dozens? Yes, it had to be a record-breaking day. The whales seemed to enjoy the cloudy, calm day and put on quite a show for us. The Captain knew just where to find the...More

We were forced to find another location as our Provincetown tour was cancelled for wind when we were in that region. All the tours go just NE of there anyway so the further out you go the longer the uneventful boat ride each way. This...More
