    This is not cheap, and risky because you are not guaranteed to see whales, but we saw two pods of three Humpbacks. The ship goes very high speed and outdoor seats will get windy. Sea sickness might be an issue too. Good luck trying to pee standing up when the boat is moving at full speed. Parking was an additional $15, just to warn you. All that aside, two things make this trip worth it: the marine biologist on board who knows each of the whales by name and who can also tell you each whale's history. Second, it seems pretty clear that the ships...Read More

    I have been whale watching over a dozen times. The first 7 with Dolphin Fleet in Provincetown, and the last ones with Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises, all with great success (lots of different whales, getting close to the boat, sometimes even breeching). We went again this year, July 2013, with Hyannis, and we were so disappointed. We only saw 1 humpback, Nile, for about 15 minutes and then a few minky whales far out in the distance. You know it is a bad whale watching day, when the watchers points out more birds and seals than whales. I understand...Read More

    Best ever'

    Great. Boat many whales of all kinds.
    Last time out we saw 53 mature and baby whales we saw a wright whale dolphins and many others. We even had a small harbor seal start to follow us in. The ride in and out was smooth and fast. The turbo engines are really great. The staff is knowledgeable and the crew makes sure everyone gets to see all the animals. Besides the whales dolphins and seal 2 whale sharks swam right under the boat'

Second, it seems pretty clear that the ships communicate with each other and notify whale locations (taking turns coming up on the pods.)

We went again this year, July 2013, with Hyannis, and we were so disappointed. We only saw 1 humpback, Nile, for about 15 minutes and then a few minky whales far out in the distance. You know it is a bad whale watching day, when the watchers points out more birds and seals than whales. I understand that every excursion is different, and perhaps this day was a rarity, but nonetheless we were very disappointed. Usually we go in August, so perhaps July is not the best time for whale watching...

I wrote "good" because 9 out of 10 times it has been great, and 1 out of 10 bad.
