boat got super rocky because of the waves but the captain and staff were great in directing us to see the whales, was able to see many and despite the motion sickness I got, totally worth it!

It was our first time and was a great experience, we saw the whales around half an hour, and then we saw a lot of dolphin families jumping around. It was amazing. And our speaker is very knowledgeable. The only thing is, make sure you wear a big coat or jacket to keep warm. I was so freezing, stayed indoor most of the time which was a bit wasting. Overall highly recommended.

Great experience! Only saw one whale early on but it was late in the season. Did see many dolphins however and that was amazing! Our captain and crew were very informative and tried very hard to find more whales.Would definitely bring a lunch next time.

About 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.
