  • Easily accessed on wharf. Boats hold 200+ people but with plenty of rail space for all to view the whales. Little over 1 hour to get to whales. During this time the crew act as tour guides around the harbour. Fun facts are continually spoken even after the whales appear. We had great luck with some whales playing but a very enjoyable 4 hour+ experience.
  • We had a wonderful experience with Capt. John. They were professional, experienced and very knowledgeable. What a day! We saw so many whales and they went out of their way to give us information on the sightings. I would highly recommend them.
  • Crew was top notch. They work very hard to ensure your experience is worth the time. I highly recommend the whale watching. One of the highlights of our vacation to Cape Cod
  • I've been on two whale watch trips and this was by far the best. I do not rate a whale watch trip based on the number of whales spotted but on the efforts of the captain, naturalist, and crew. All were great. That being said, we saw plenty of whales so my sons were kept interested the entire time. A great experience.
  • This was our second time going out with this whale watch crew. We have had an awesome time both times! They bring you to the whales and teach about them! Looking forward to our next trip!!
