This tour was fantastic! Captain Rob was a knowledgeable guide and an excellent seaman. We had a wonderful and informative tour, plus tons of fun when we zipped through the ocean after exiting the river. The seals were fun to watch bobbing around Chatham harbor (tip: schedule your tour after looking at the tide charts and try to find a time close to low tide so you’ll see the seals lying on the sand banks). We also appreciated how Covid-safe this was since it was a private tour! In addition to the seals, the osprey were plentiful and so beautiful to watch soaring above the river and pond.

I live here, in Centerville, and my family has been coming to visit for years. I am always looking for great cape experiences for them to enjoy. Blue Claw Boat Tours ranks among the best! Captain Rob shared fun and interesting facts. His pleasant and friendly demeanor truly made our seal excursion memorable.

I’ve been coming to Cape Cod for 15 years and of all the experiences I’ve had here (whale watching tours, fishing boat excursions, etc), this was one of my top favorite things I’ve enjoyed doing. Captain Rob is a wealth of knowledge and tells great stories- without sounding scripted like some tours. He knew exactly where to take us to see the seals up close and the boat was very comfortable and spacious for our group of 6 adults and 3 children. I’d recommend Blue Claw for a fun way to get on the water and see some wildlife!

First off, the customer service was great. We booked our tour and of course the 3 hours around our scheduled time was supposed to have thunderstorms. They were quick to reach out the morning of our tour to let us know the weather was going to be potentially bad and they would need to cancel our tour. However, they were able to reschedule us to later that same day. We went on a seal tour and it was fantastic. Captain Rob Wissmann was super knowledgeable about the surrounding areas. He took time to slow or stop around numerous points of interest and explained quite a bit about the surrounding towns and area history. He was incredibly friendly and great with the kids. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to anybody that enjoys being on the water and seeing the local wildlife. My kids were asking of we could go back immediately after getting in the car which is always a good sign.

We had an absolutely wonderful time on our Seal adventure boat trip! From the scheduling and communication, to the actual outing we had a great experience. We booked a private Seal Tour week of, and the weather turned out to be pretty gross on the day we were scheduled. Cathy from the office contacted us for a next day tour instead. She was incredibly helpful and communicative. On the actual tour, we had Captain Rob who was a delight — super knowledgable, friendly, and all-around great guide. We learned a lot, and saw some very cute seals. 10/10 would recommend! We'll definitely be coming back for another Blue Claw tour, as it's a really cool way to get to know the coast. Thanks so much Capt. Rob and Cathy!
