The Whale Watch was great. Saw numerous whales and they didn't rush to get back. If something was spotted we stopped and watched and waited and just about every time were rewarded with a sighting. They were very informative. Great family trip.

The experience was great. This is my time going. You never know what you will see when your out there. The sightings weren't great but that's not their fault. The experience, staff and our guide was great.

I enjoyed the trip. I used to work as a whale watching guide in Northern Iceland and in Puget Sound, so it was a pleasure to get back on the water and get a good look at a fin whale. I felt that the boat was a little aggressive in its approach, and that we were a little inside of the NOAA set 100 yard rule, but I also realize it is a careful balance when the majority of guests don't understand why we can't be right on top of the thing. I also appreciate that the captain always approached from the side, trying to put himself where the thought the whale would swim parallel to. I also realize that fin whales create more of a challenge for the captain than humpbacks due to their speed, and that the majority of the whales watched by this boat would normally be humpbacks. Our guide was pleasant and well spoken; I am embarrassed to say I can't remember his name but I liked the guy--a recent graduate from...Pittsburg? Having never worked on the ocean before and being new to the study of cetaceans, I imagine he will continually improve throughout the summer as he stockpiles and becomes confident in his information, and gets his routine down. I was quite happy with the company, everyone I interacted with was pleasant. Obviously, if you take a tour out of P Town you can spend more time with the whales, being closer to Stellwagon Bank, but then, you have to drive all the way to P Town. So that's the compromise. Realize that most of your trip will be spent underway, but really, that's what you're going to get when it comes to whale watching in most venues worldwide. I would recommend Captain John's Boats, and will use them again in the future.

Was a really choppy day out but was fun and crew was really friendly and helpful.will suggest to dress warm bring a jacket during this time of the year as it gets realllllly cold out there.will be back for another tour more later in the season as this is only the beginning for whale watching.

This is the second time in 3 years that I have been on a Captain John wale watch. Both experiences were great. Crew is pleasant and well informed. Boat was spotless. We only saw a couple of whales this time, probably 10 last time. I recommend going in mid July when most of the whales will have arrived off PTown for the best views. I will definitely go again in the future.

Had a wonderful time. This was the first time my mom has ever seen whales and it was a delight sharing that with her. Weather and whales cooperated on our outing along with a special shark sighting.
