The company is very well run. Able to buy tickets easily on the web site. Boat left the harbor right on time. Very informative crew on board. They worked very hard so we could see these beautiful mammals.

We had a great time! We saw a humpback whale feeding over and over. We saw 300 to 400 dolphins swimming together! The weather was beautiful. The ship was clean with a nice restroom and snack bar.

Had always wanted to go on a whale watch... and was not disappointed! Took a morning watch and we saw several different types of whales. Bubble feeding was fabulous! One of nature's marvels. Well worth the expense. Conservationist on board was great!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Hi people - a couple of questions I hope you can help with, please. We are visiting from the UK. 1. We are staying near Yarmouth / Barstable 21/22 May. Are best to get a tour from Barstable or drive round to Provincetown? Do we get more time on the Banks from Provincetown? 2. Should we book in advance, or are there plenty of spaces? (Once tried to do a trip from Gloucester in 2012, but was cancelled because of tail end of a hurricane coming up the coast). Thank you in anticipation!

Yes go to Provincetown. After the trip there are lots of shops to walk around and nice restaurants. We booked, but some people turned up and were lucky to get a seat on the day. It's the same price so you might as well book... More
We are coming the second week of August, which time of the day is the best tour to take to see the whales? Was considering mid afternoon 1:30 or the 5:30 p.m. tour. Thank you.

We went on the 10am cruise which I understand is better because the waters and winds are usually calmer! If you have the opportunity try to do the morning cruise!
Hello, What are the chances of seeing whales mid April of this year?

we were there in October and saw hundreds of whales. I had never seen so many. that area is a rich feeding grounds for whales so chances are usually pretty good. but contact the fleet and ask.
