$34 pp. very worth the price. It’s very organized and well run! Beautiful views! We loved it! You go to the boat store and then they bust you over to where the boat leaves from. It is only a five minute ride.

Enjoyed a wonderful seal tour!! Even without the seals, the trip would have been great. Beautiful scenery and informative guide. Seals were fascinating and very plentiful. We’re able to see a large group on a sandbar and lots of smaller groups as well! Would recommend...More

We were on our way back to Boston to fly back home and decided at the last minute to do the seal watch tour. We called and they happily fit us in. Skip was the captain and did an excellent job of explaining in detail...More

We had fun! It took some convincing on my end to persuade my husband to bring two toddlers on a seal watching tour, but we’re so glad we did! The staff were well organized and got us set up quickly with life jackets and seal...More

Although I’ve summered on Cape Cod all my life and now live here full time, I never took a seal watch cruise until today. Today’s cruise was excellent-we saw hundreds of seals and the Captain’s narration was both informative and interesting,

Smart idea to have parking away from the shore side. You park at their store and take a complimentary shuttle to the boat. Friendly and knowledgeable staff take you out to see on an exciting ride. Fast boat but not too fast for little ones....More

My family of four had a wonderful day out seal watching. We saw hundreds and hundreds of grey and harbor seals. Capt Burt was friendly and knew the history of the ever changing sand bars and seal behavior. I’d recommend this outfitter to anyone- ages...More

There were tons of seals and we were as close as we could safely get. The length of time is great for kids. Our teenagers enjoyed it as well. I could have stayed out longer and just looked at all the incredible houses on the...More

I would highly recommend this seal tour. You park at the Chatham Boat Co and get a quick shuttle (about 1 mile) to Ryder's cove. There you get on the boat. They take you on a slow ride through the cove and then right up...More

Yes you can as long as you bring a leash and keep the dog leashed at all times! The beach rules also require you to keep your dog on the leash the whole time as well

Not sure of your exact answer, I would expect it to depend on the weather and the amount of people going. Since we went off season, they took a smaller boat, which worked out to our advantage, we were able to get closer to... More
