We took the beachcomber seal tour at the end of August. We went to three or four locations and saw hundreds seals. This tour was much better than the other seal tour that I took out of Chatham where we saw about 15 seals and idled in the same location for almost an hour.

We not only got to see a large number of seals our boat captain taught us a lot about the area. We got a great boat ride and it was good to see where we had visited the day before on land, now from the water.

Absolutely fabulous tour of the Chatham Harbor and hundreds of seals on our way t North Beach. Our captain, Jim, had a vast knowledge of the history, geography, climate and weather as well as wonderful tales of seals and sharks. This is not to be missed!

Everyone in our party of 10--ranging in ages from 8 to 72--had so much on this trip. Captain Burt was so knowledgeable about the area and the sites and we saw LOADS of seals. Beautiful, adorable and up close. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

This is a good trip for families with young children as it gets you out on the water with a different perspective of Chatham as well as a close look at toms of seals without spending too much time out money. Because seals are now so prevalent throughout the area, I found the value of the trip to be in... More

Went on this seal tour with my girlfriend and her two kids and it was great! Boat takes you out to several areas where there are loads of seals that swim very close by. Bring a camera as you'll want to snap many pics of these curious animals and I say curious because it seemed as our boat got closer... More

A great boat trip. The guide gave lots of interesting information during the trip and we saw loads and loads of seals on sandbanks. We were able to watch them, take pictures and learn about some of their behaviours. He also pointed out osprey nests nearby, which was amazing to see and also showed us erosion points on the coast...

We had a great tour! Learned about the seals, about Chatham, and enjoyed the views. Everyone at the desk, in the bus and on the boat was so friendly. We would like to have stayed a lot longer, but 1 1/2 hour with kids is just perfect. Even the litlle ones on board where still happy when we got back.

Monday, the 4th of July early outing! It was warm air and cool breeze, a beautiful day at that! It was a nice group of people on the boat that morning. We did a mid morning trip and had I planned better, going at low tide may have provided more fun and action to see. The captain of the boat... More
