The seals of Monomoy are a rare treat seen close up from the shallow drafting seal watch vessel Perserverance. You will glide though narrow channels and into isolated lagoons where hundreds, sometimes thousands of Gray Seals swim and lay out along the shore. And you will spy sea birds and once in a while, the shadow of a great white shark passes by. Some of the best ocean fun adventure for your family.

After booking and paying for our excursion the previous day, the weather was not cooperative (too windy), so the tour was canceled. But nobody told us. We showed up at the office and when nobody was there we went to the harbor and waited. And waited. When we finally got somone to answer, she said she left us a message... More

We had a beautiful day for being out on the water. We saw countless amounts of seals and other wildlife. The water got a bit rough, but the captain did a great job of giving us a smooth ride. The staff was very nice and informative. Would recommend to anyone.

Had a great time seeing the harbor, lighthouses and really enjoyed watching the playful and abundant seals!!! Guide and captain were knowledgeable and pleasant. Definitely worth the money.

Fantastic way to see the area, the tour included beautiful homes by the water, sail boats, a light house and of course seals! The tour was about 2 hours in length and its a perfect way to spend the afternoon! Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our tour through North and South Monomoy. We saw many sea birds, lots of seals popping up in the water, and even a coyote. The captain and guide were very nice. We were a group of 8 and we were happy with the tour. The Captain was good at navigating through swift waters and the guide was... More

We really enjoyed the Monomoy Island Excursions Seal Cruise. The boat was clean and comfortable. The captain highlighted the sights along the shore, talked about the natural changes on Monomoy Island and brought us to where the seals were feeding and lolling in the sun. The only flaw was that the "naturalist" on board conveyed a political agenda. The "naturalist"... More

We were lucky to book this tour the night before as it was full when we got on the boat. Narrator was knowledgeable and the captain drove us right into a school of menhaden where the seals were feeding...or shall I say lolling about because they were so full. We saw Stage Harbor Lighthouse and Chatham Light from a distance.... More

We sailed with Ed Banks. He is so knowledgable, personable & humorous! We cruised through sun and fog out to view seals. It was an unbelievable sight,as the seals began to "greet" us by swimming around the boat. Everyone was delighted! I recommend this to adults and families. A wonderful Cape Cod adventure.

Staff and ship were great! Ed was very informative. Go near high tide if possible to access all areas. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Nice boat that has seats covered by a canopy. Lovely ride out to Monomoy Island - a little disappointed in the short narration provided by the naturalist.
