Had a great time. Saw two different humpback whales feeding. Knowledgeable guide/spotter shared numerous facts about whales, and the area where we were. There was also someone videoing the whole day's events that you can purchase after your whale watching experience. Very educational, would make a great field day trip for kids. Be sure to bring a sweatshirt or jacket, it is much cooler out on the water.

Awesome day! Have sailed a couple of times with them. Boat clean and well maintained. Staff well informed and offers great insight to whales. This weeks tour provided a bit more challenging for finding whales but they were persistent. Six and a half hours later we had seen dozens of whales and dolphins! Typical ride 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Cash only accepted on boat. Charge is $15 for parking.

A must when visiting cape Cod. We booked this 3.5 hour tour in May. The weather was unusually chilly for the season. The tour boat had ample outdoor and indoor seating. The boat also offered snacks and drinks including a few alcoholic beverages( Bloody Mary's, etc). The surf was a bit choppy that day. So the captain and tour guide recommended each passenger take sea sickness tablet which they provided free of charge. We had no issues with sea sickness. Apparently this is unusual for those taking the tour. It had been rainy and windy in the hours prior. By the time we got to location where the whales were the water was calm and remained so all way on our return to dock. The whales were abundant coming right up to the boat. The tour guide was very informative. We whales breaching and then diving down showing their tails. We saw them jumping up in the water. Mothers swimming with their baby whales. Definitely the highlight of our trip to the cape. We made this trip in late May. A definite must. Bring your camera. You won't be disappointed. We saw many humpback whales. The great whites had not migrated yet.

Not many whales right now early June but one cool event. Scenery was beautiful going out. The water was like Hawaii going around Sandy point. Fully narrated.

Very interesting trip and spectacular views of whales. They are also prepared to go further (extending length of trip) if that means better sightings. Clean vessel, sufficient seating. Had a fantastic time.
