Capt. Bill and Sons Whale Watch

Capt. Bill and Sons Whale Watch started more than 50 years ago, but the late Captain Bill Cunningham can't take full credit for his business' creation. In many ways, the whales themselves founded the company, though they still made Bill do all of the paperwork. Capt. Bill and Sons originally chartered deep sea fishing trips, but the anglers would often get distracted when a humpback or minke whale breached the surface. Seeing how the majestic mammals awed his passengers, the company decided to stow its fishing rods and set out on whale-watching tours instead.

Today, the Capt. Bill and Sons team—which includes son Marc—welcome whale-watchers aboard their two-tiered ship, the Miss Cape Ann. Once they head out into the water, the experts share tips on spotting whales and insights into the animals' behavior, biology, and social structure. Passengers should look sharp for other species as well, as the waters around Stellwagen Bank and Jeffreys Ledge are also home to Atlantic white-sided dolphins and harbor seals.

I had a great time with Capt. Bill & Sons. We were out for 3 hours and saw whales and dolphins. The boat was not too crowded and it was easy to move to each side to see the action. I would definitely recommend.
