The seal tour of Monomoy Island was fabulous! Be warned that it is a bumpy and wet ride out to/from Monomoy Island but well worth any discomfort. Cpt. Keith was a wealth of information and brought us in close to shore to get superb photos...More

Thank you for your comments. Just want to clarify a few things. The day of your trip we had deteriorating weather, which caused the bumpy ride, that is why we only did the one trip that day. Your "where are you" call is standard practice...More

You didn't have your choice of seating, because you almost missed the boat. The engines remain running at all times for the protection of the animals swimming around the boat, as I'm sure the captain explained to you, how the seals track via vibration and...More

Wonderful excursion and great people. Very informative and entertaining bunch. Our captain knew exactly where to go to see seals, and was very knowledgeable. Also, we were scheduled to go on a shark excursion, but since conditions weren't ideal, and chances of actually seeing sharks...More

Monomoy Island is beautiful and this alone makes a boat trip out worthwhile. The grey seals we saw bobbing around our boat were a bonus. But the tour has potential to be so much better. Once we were out in the viewing area we basically...More

Our seal crusie is and always has been an educational tour. The trip is a seal cruise not a beach shuttle. We offer private cruises for both, which would have allowed you to get the version of either you wanted. I do want to thank...More

We went out to look at seals aboard the Rip Ryder with captain Keith. It was great, Keith had vast knowledge and the tour was informative. We saw seals almost immediately. Highly recommend this trip.
