3 generations in our group. We all enjoyed the whales, the ship, and the outstanding staff. Comfortable seating inside and out. Very informative commentary.

This was probably one of the best experiences of my life. I have been wanting to whale watch my entire life and this tour did not disappoint. The staff/captain knew exactly where to go. It was almost like the whales were waiting on us! The woman hosting (forget her title) was highly knowledgeable, very clear when directing us where to look, and engaging with the guests on the way back. I would highly recommend this tour and will be back to do it again.

Great boat ride. The whales we’re much closer than I would have imagined. Great communication / education from the crew

Overall we enjoyed this whale watch. We saw three different types of whales. I guess the biggest downfall we had is it seem that everything was on the left side of the boat and we were sitting on the right side of the boat. And I felt like every time there was a whale at one or 2 o’clock the captain would then turn the boat so then the whales were now at 10 o’clock and 11 o’clock. That seem to happen multiple times it was very frustrating to use and those around us. It was very hard to find a space upfront to view the whales as people crowded in there and did not move to allow others have a turn to see.

Wow! Awesome! Words can’t do this voyage justice. We saw so many humpbacks! They were breaching, tail slapping and feeding! What an awesome experience! The naturalist on board was so helpful, educating us on whale movements and sightings. There was also a videographer on board to capture these special moments so we could really take in the experience. We were recently in Alaska and saw only 3 or 4 whales. This trip was so much better, by far! Totally made our vacation outstanding. Not in congested Hyannis. Near Barnstable Village near Millway Beach. Easy access! Thank you!
