We loved our whale watching adventure. They guarantee that you will see whales, and we certainly did. If you don't see whales, you get a free trip. There's lots of scheduled trips throughout the day, so you won't have any trouble fitting a trip into your schedule. There's lots of photo opportunities, but there is also a photographer on board...

I loved the whale watching experience! We went in June and the day was sunny but it can get chilly out on the deck. We saw loads of whales and the most exciting was when a huge basking shark - second largest fish in the world - swam up very close to the boat and stayed there for quite a... More

I didn't expect this whale watch to be so much fun! I would recommend this to anyone, you don't need to have small children along to love this. Everyone turned into a 5 year old when we started to see whales, people were so excited. We went on a beautiful Saturday at 10 am and there were a lot of... More

We saw ten different whales, with 23 sighting between them. The whales got very close to the boat. Two approached the rear of the boat, split apart, swam along each side of the boat, and reunited in front of the boat. We got an excellent look at these majestic creatures. They seems as interested in us as we were in... More

We recently spent a month in Cape Cod and the Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch out of Provincetown, MA was the highlight of our stay! The time went so quickly as we watched whale after whale feeding and some breaching. We mostly observed humpback whales but also saw a minke whale or two. Overall we saw around two dozen whales, sometimes... More

No visit to the Cape should omit a whale watch, and this one is the best. We live on the Cape and make sure all our visitors go to P'town and take the Dolphin Fleet. Always interesting and worth the price. We even go out at least once a year because every trip is unique.

We saw way more than expected, while they were so very respectful of the whales and their needs. Will definitely recommend and do again. this time of year is awesome because we... More

We booked an 11 tour, but checked in early and they gave us an opportunity to get on the 10am boat, which was gave us a bit more time to enjoy our day. We sat on the upper deck and were lucky enough to see 2 Humpback Whales very close to the boat. They stayed close to the boat for... More

Just my luck the day I decide to visit Provincetown and do a whale watching tour it rains all day. However despite the rain the charter goes out. We made it just past Race Point Light and turned around. The rain and wind were getting wicked. So no whales for me, however my money was refunded along with everyone else.... More
