The most amazing trip, we were lucky with the whales as caught groups of up to 15 humpbacks feeding together!! The narrative it very informative and they are really helpful at pointing out the wildlife.

A whale-watching trip is a must if you're visiting Provincetown. We had read a book mentioning this particular fleet and we're glad we went. We saw some finbacks and numerous seals. Sadly, we weren't able to spot humpbacks, as the water was so choppy and...More

I know that some of it comes down to luck and that weather can have as much to do with a successful whale watching trip as anything else. I also know that I've done whale watching multiple times, and this was the best trip we've...More

We set sail from Ptown on a gloriously sunny day in early September and little did we know what treats lay in store for us. Within 20 minutes of departing Ptown we spotted Fin Whales. Close enough to be caught on camera but still some...More

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!
