  • Today we decided to go whale watching. Something we have never done. We booked Capt John's by phone just to be sure we could make the 2 PM boat. We arrived and we're greeted by great staff. I could te...  more »

  • I've enjoyed Captain John boats in Plymouth ma for whale watching & to watch the fire works on the fourth of July. Had a good time, everyone was nice.
  • When I was a kid it was a lot better. Too crowded to catch anything but someone's line. If you are lucky to get anything don't let them touch it they will butcher your fish
  • 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.
  • Amazing time on here. We saw a ton of whales and the boat captain was always one step ahead of when they would pop up, so you never missed a sighting. We stayed out at the sight for a good amount of time.
  • We had a great time on the Pilgrim Belle taking the Harbor Cruise. Beautiful weather and a nicely guided tour of Plymouth Harbour. Really liked the captain's commentary.
