Went out on the Starstream on the 26th of June both morning and evening trip. The CPT was the worst I've ever been with. He claimed he was trying to put us on the fish. In the morning on three separate time when the catch was on he immediately had us pull up the lines and moved us. He put us over a wreck then complained we weren't lifting the lines and moved. Most of the people complained that we should have stayed but he moved anyway. Most left the boat skunked and the CPT apologized. In the evening his navigation skills were even worse. He attended new locations that didn't pan out. He then drove 1/2 hours away where there was no catch. He apologized again then drove another 1/2 hours to the channels. When the catch was on he had the customers lift lines up again. Went in 14 minutes early. We won't fish out of Freeport on CPT Lou fleet ever again. That CPT really sucked.

Rude, unhelpful. We got stuck in the tunnel because of an accident and called 1.5 hours ahead of the sailing to give them a heads-up. Understand that there is a policy of no refunds but they were not only not open to rescheduling but the call back was utterly unprofessional and rude (some Anthony called). So they declined to issue a refund or fit us in on another date. Even the airlines are being more accommodating these days. If this is the customer service on the phone, I wonder what the rest of the trip is like. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE - there are other whale watching tours. Pick anyone but these guys

I have gone to Whale Watching Boston previously and decided to do a local tour in my homestate. Captain Lou is pretty new in the Whale business . The trip on Saturday July 24th was quite lovely, we were able to see a wonderful baby whale where the captain went as close as possible to the whale where we the customers could get great pics. The lovely young lady whose the naturalist on board was very informative in sharing with us about not only the Whales but about other animals e.g. Dolphins etc. If you are looking for a great family trip and you are in the New York/New Jersey area check out Captain Lou.
