Very educational! The marine biologist on board was very knowledgeable. He explained every whale we saw. Their names if known. Take lots of pictures. Bring jacket or sweatshirt really cold on water. Suitable for 5 year olds of older. Takes a lot of patience waiting...More

Well organised trip. There was a commentary the whole time with so much information. All of the staff were friendly. Never had time to go inside as there was so much to see and appreciate outside. With worth the money.

This was truly a great trip. We saw a Finback whale several times and quite close up. But before that, we had to be very patient. First we waited on land for our boat to come in. I appreciate that the crew was making sure...More

We had checked before drivng to Provincetown to see if the whale watch was on. It was. We drove, parked, and waited for our 12:30 PM appointment on Dolphin IX. It was an almost four hour trip and a big success. I am guessing that...More

We went two summers ago in August of 2016 and it was my husband's first whale watch. The day was gorgeous. We did see whales and it was exciting but I wish they came closer to the boat.

Have been on several WHALEWATCHING trips over the years,but this by far was the best one. From the number of whales seen (20+) to the shows the whales put on for us (breaches x 5), it was a great trip for a very reasonable price....More

I am not totally sure but I was told that we would be given a free ticket for the next day. Also, when on the trip, the staff is in contact with all ships in the area and we then head to where sightings are.
