Captain John has been amazing with accommodating our agency's annual summer sunset cruises on the Pilgrim Belle. Our agency, Plymouth County Family Support, supports individuals with a broad range of disabilities. Including severe physical disabilities requiring wheelchairs. Jaime and the onboard staff has been wonderful in making sure all of our folks are safe and smiling the whole time!! The staff really go the extra mile to talk to our individuals and make jokes! It is such a positive experience for everyone that really helps our folks get into the community and socializing. We will absolutely continue to go back for our 3rd summer in a row in 2023!

Lots of whale sightings, dolphins. Well organised. With lots of people on rhe boat, it is sometimes crouwded, and difficult to get a good shot for a picture.

Whale watching trip was beyond excellent. I'm sure nature doesn't always produce the same results however on our trip we had dozens of close encounters. One feeding breach included 5 whales right next to the boat. Very glad I was able to bring my kids on this trip.

This was an incredible experience and worth every penny. Lindsay, our conservationist, was extremely knowledgeable about the whales, their activities and personalities. She was extremely informative throughout the entire four-hour trip, letting us know what we might expect and when. We saw a significant number of humpbacks on our trip. Simply amazing from start to finish.

My mom and went on a whale watch on Friday July 8th and had a great time. We saw 25 whales and got great videos and pictures. Captain Mike, Lindsay our naturalist, Cam, Anthony, Parker, our deckhands and the gallery crew were awesome. It was a great day for a whale watch with no rough seas We left from Plymouth, MA and got to see the newly restored MayFlower II which my uncle John Snyder helped restore before moving to Maine. It looked amazing. Anna did a great job taking our boarding photo. Hope to do another whale watch again with Captain John Boats in the future. Highly recommend them to my family and friends.
