October is toward the end of the whale-watching season, so some of the whales will probably have moved on by then. But if there weren't any whales, the fleets wouldn't offer excursions at that time of year.
The trip from Hyannis to P-town takes a little less than an hour and a half, although there's a company that operates out of Hyannis if you want to do the trip from there.
The seas can be choppy any time. If you're prone to seasickness, be sure to take Dramamine or Bonine before you head out.
Oh - and be sure to bundle up, because it's going to be COLD out on the water.
thanks a lot for your input, Pastiche!
I have just returned from Boston/Cape Cod. Back in FEBRUARY we booked and paid in full for a whale watch at the end of October. We drove from Falmouth where we were staying all the way to Provincetown and when we arrived there was a notice on the door of Dolphin Whale Fleet saying that they had packed up for the season. This was a bright sunny day, no adverse weather conditions whatsoever. An email would have been basic courtesy, I feel. Be warned what they are like.
Wow. I'm really sorry to hear this. Have you been able to get a refund?
