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

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

Grandma and Grandpa took their two grandkids on the seal watch located at Chatham Boat Co. The bus took us down to the dock and there were 13 passengers including Capt. Skip. There was plenty of room to walk around if you wanted to. Capt....More

I would highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Chatham - make sure you bring a long sleeve shirt or jacket as it's very windy. The views are beautiful, the seals are fun and plentiful and Captain Skip knows his info. Thanks, Beachcomber Tours!

We were looking for something to do on our last day of vacation, and this was perfect. A 90 minute boat ride with our teenagers- we saw Chatham from the water, and of course the seals. Our captain Skip was very informative and gave great...More
