What an epic trip!!!! I don't know if it was Captain Jesse's knowledge and instincts about the whales' behaviour, or if it was just pure luck - but either way we had the trip of a lifetime. We are SOOO glad we opted to pay a little more for a semi-private charter. We were able to get close (but not... More

My husband, 4 year old daughter and myself took the Sea Salt Charter for the first time on August 29. We went out with Captain Jesse and he was great! Apparently he was in training but we would have never known it. He was very knowledgeable about the whales and birds feeding in the area. Its so fun when the... More

We had calm seas and the good fortune to be positioned exactly where a group of whales were feeding. I should say that Captain Chad has deep skill and experience and this allowed us to go to be in the right place at the right time. We also stopped for a little fishing. Captain Chad is very helpful and knows... More

We are veterans of almost 50 whale watch trips over the years in many parts of the world and have for many trips used one of the larger boats out of provincetown. The last few years have been a disappointment and the more popular whale watching becomes the worse the service and experience has gotten. Never again ! This trip... More

The private whale watching tour with Captain Chad was one of the most amazing and unforgettable experiences of our lives. Captain Chad offers a unique whale watching experience as the only private charter available in Cape Cod. His small, nimble speedboat gave us the ability to move to locations where there were whale sightings ahead of larger operators. The smaller... More

I have been out with Captain Chad for the last 3 summers.. He is amazing & truly cares about these majestic creatures. My last trip is best summed up by a first time whale watcher I had the pleasure of meeting on the boat. She was well into her 80's and said, 'This is the most incredible thing I have... More

We booked a half-day private charter whale-watching trip with Captain Chad, and we were so pleased we chose him (amongst many other providers.) We had a fantastic afternoon and were lucky enough to see many, many whales. Chad is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about these wonderful animals, and his knowledge helped ensure we had the very best opportunities to... More

We are wildlife photographers and we chartered a small boat to get photos of Humpback Whales. This boat will take up to 6 people. We only had 4 people. Captain Chad was great! Very knowledgeable and accommodating. The Whales put on a great show. Bubble Net and Kick Feeding very close to the boat. He even had a large beanbag... More

Fantastic! awesome mind blowing, wow! We have just returned from a whale watch with Captain Chad, it was on our "bucket list" so we treated ourselves and chartered his boat just for the 2 of us, worth every penny and more. We were privileged to see literally dozens of Humpbacks feeding and some babies, a gorgeous experience made possible by... More

Absolutely blown away today! We caught fish but even more special was seeing all of the whales. Found the charter with a google search and really got lucky. We lost count of the number of whales we saw - Dolphin as well! Chad navigated us to a feeding location where we learned so much about whales and then had the... More
