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!

I have been on this whale watching cruise twice now and the first time was THE BEST! We saw humpbacks, fin whales, seals, and my partner and I really think we saw an orca's fin in the distance before he dove down into the water....More

This was our first whale watching trip from Cape Cod. We saw at least three different humpback whales multiple times. We saw Fin whales and Minke whales. Some passengers spotted a Basking Shark. The crew was great and we would gladly take this trip again.

We've done whale watches from other parts of New England. This was just as good as any. No complaints. They seem to have their act together, price is fair and we had a great time. I think we've seen more whales on other tours, but...More

So we were very excited to go out and view whales in the bay off Provincetown and duly paid for the tour which is expensive but hopefully worth it! Sadly a huge let down, due to such an easy thing to have working. We could...More

I went on the whale watching tour in early May. The rest of my party wasn't interested, so I went solo for this one. It was still pretty cold (mid-50s) and a bit rainy. Who knew it would be such a perfect day for whale...More

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.
