  • Don't skip this. You have to pay for parking, which stunk. The guide we had was tremendously informative. And the network of boats keep in touch with each other to steer us to where the sightings...

  • Whale Watch was absolutely fantastic! John went to a different location just to be sure that we would see some whales and DID WE SEE SOME WHALES!!! Unbelievable! I've never experienced anything like it in my whole life! Definitely a check off my bucket list. Would highly recommend to ANYONE in the world!
  • This was a great experience; the operation is highly organized, punctual, and informative. The vessel itself is spacious and powerful, and the commentary throughout was, as I mentioned, informative. The captain did his best to ensure that patrons on all sides could see the one whale we focused on for the watch. Her name was Freckles. 😊 It would've been nice to see more, but these things are uncontrollable, and the waters were a bit rough due to higher winds. Would highly recommend.
  • You get to see Whales!!! We got there a half hour early and the boat was almost full. Don’t worry. You’ll get to see whales from anywhere. There is plenty of room. The boat is big and powerful and the naturist/host is friendly and lets you know where to look!
  • All the staff were super friendly and we saw two humpback whales! I especially liked that they had a volunteer on the boat, Nancy, who described how Baleen whales (like the humpback) have sieve-like filters instead of teeth to capture lots of little fish with each giant gulp (and spit out water). Then our tour guide had lots to say and the captain made sure that when we found whales, people on either side of the boat got a good look. Thanks, Hyannis Whale Watch.
  • This is our third whalewatch with this company. The boat is large and comfortable. The narration is interesting and educational. A full snack bar is on board too. The Capt. does his job superbly. A great family experience.
