staying in brewster, want to whale watch

Can someone suggest a good whale watch trip for a family. Will we see whales?......we did one in Kennebunkport a couple years ago and it was a bust! 4 hour of our lives we'll never get back!!!

Go up to Provincetown, you'll have a great time. Here's a link to a directory:

Head up to P Town to Dolphin Fleet. They have AAA discounts. Do you need eat suggestions in P Town? It is a 45 min+ ride up to P Town from B'Ster.

There is never any guarantee that you will see any whales. It's not Marineland.

Can't go wrong with a whale watch trip on the Dolphin Fleet out of Provincetown. While there is never any guaranteee, we have gone out at the end of August for the last several years and have seen multiple whales, including moms with calves, every time. Even saw a basking shark!

That's as maybe but there's no guarantee that the OP will be as lucky. So not correct to say that you can't go wrong with Dolphin Watch.

Should have said Dolphin Fleet.

We went on the Dolphin Fleet out of P-town a few weeks ago.

AMAZING. See the reviews of them here on tripadvisor.

There is never a guarantee to see whales, but we saw at least a dozen, so close I felt like touching them.

All the whale watch boats/companies tend to head to the feeding grounds off P-town called Stellwagon Bank. Having a naturalist/scientist on the boat was great.

just a question to piggy back on this one - would a trip out of Barnstable be comparable - or is there a better chance of seeing whales out of Ptown?

CaitKel

The answer has already been presented. Alll the boats go to Stellwegen Bank.
