We participated in the Beachcomber Expedition and Seal Tour and had a great time. The boats aren't too large but very safe. It's a much more intimate feel. I think there were about 15 people going on the tour the day we were there and they divided the group into two boats! Wow! The tour out was narrated by our... More

We booked the full moon cruise in August and it was spectacular! The boat holds max 12 adults so it seems more intimate and personalized then those packing on 100+. Rob, the captain was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining throughout our tour. The boat is spacious enough for all and very clean, no weird smells which is a plus!. We had... More

We had a thoroughly wonderful time on our Blue Claw Tour. Better than we expected. Professionally run, great scenery, interesting local information & history. All-around delightful time. Captain Rob is a great ambassador for Cape Cod.

Captain Rob hosted an amazing day. Who knew seals howled! They were so close and so beautiful. The island was like a treasure hunt. The tour was so exciting, relaxing and informative. It is a must do !

This was a nice way to have a bit of fun for 90 minutes and see the views from the water. I liked how Captain Bob showed us a map before heading out and gave information about the areas we viewed as well as the seals, of course, which are adorable in the water. Only tip is be sure to... More

Lovely trip for a different vantage point of the shore. Lots of seals and birds. I don't normally like boats, but I felt very safe and relaxed.

My 6 yr.old grandson and I went out on Capt. Rob's Blue Claw Beachcombing and seal tour today and we had a great time. Captain Rob was a wonderful host making sure we were all seated properly so that the boat was evenly balanced. He gave detailed histories of the surrounding areas and included some pirate tails too of buried... More

My husband, 6 year-old son and I enjoyed a *great* afternoon on Chatham Harbor on one of the Blue Claw Boat Tour seal cruises. We originally wanted to do the seal cruise and beach combing combination, but we were the only people who booked it, so they cancelled it. We were disappointed, but they reached out the day before and... More

A really fun couple of hours with Cap'n Ross in his small boat. We had a lovely cruise out to the seals; saw hundreds of them - quite a sight - very close up. Lovely trip back via the fish dock (more interesting than it sounds) Good informative commentary. Highly recommend to anyone.
