The trip with these guys was an exciting experience. The boat was not overcrowded. The skipper gave us an interesting information about the local history and wild life in Chatam bay. The most important thing was that we saw a great number of lovely seals:-) We would definitely recommend this tour.

This was such a fun tour! The boat was on the small side, so we were able to see all around and hear the driver/guide well. We saw tons of seals in 3 different locations. He gave us some very interesting information about the seals, sharks, beaches and the area in general. I went with 3 other adults, 2 children... More

We took the 4pm tour and had a fabulous time and could not believe how close we got to the gray seals. We saw tons in various areas in the bay and our captain knew tons of information about the seals. Definitely a great tour and can't wait to go back.

My daughters favorite animal. This was pre season, even though it was June. The boat was small, but there was only 8 of us. The Captain, Skip was very knowledgable and allowed plenty of time for photos. I would definitely do this trip again!

We were looking to see seals and all reviews pointed to this outfit. I wanted to go at low tide so that we would get to view them sunning outside of the water. Called and made the reservation and when we arrived at the main building we were a little disappointed because it looked like too many people. But after... More

We had a great time on the Beachcomber seal tour. Captain Skip was very knowledgeable and was abel to answer most questions. We saw lots of seals as well as other sights around Chatum harbor. There was a small step to get on the boat that could be difficult for those with mobility issues. There were a few younger children... More

Enjoyable time. Saw 3000 seals. The captain was knowledgeable about the seals. There is no cover on the boat or bathroom so be prepared.

We took our family on a seal watching tour this summer. It was great. The boat was comfortable, the driver knowledgable and friendly and we were able to get right up next to the seals. We brought three children with us and they provided the life preservers in appropriate sizes for the journey.

The Beachcomber Seal Tour is the best on the Cape. Great staff and knowledgable captain who answers all your questions. Saw many seals during our 2 pm tour. Best time to go is at low tide or when tide is going out (4 hrs after high tide). Great day on the water for all. Pete

I called to see when the seals would be out basking and was told what times were the best to go. The captain was very informative. This was our first seal watch, but we will go again when we return to the Cape.
