The guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the history of Gloucester and the ocean life. We saw three whales and even dolphins! My 9-year old had so much fun. Perfect for the whole family!

We only saw two humpback whales, but they stayed with us for about an hour. They were resting and got very close to the boat. It would have been nice to see more, but this was quality over quantity.
