Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours

Cape Cod Bay stretches out in all directions, its waters glittering under an azure sky. Here, razor bills, petrals, and shearwater circle over the cresting waves. Occasionally, a massive black flank breaks the surface, and a whale sprays a fountain of blow toward the sun. Such is the typical scene enjoyed by the passengers, U.S. Coast Guard–licensed captain, and crew aboard a Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours excursion.

Following more than six decades of tradition, the company's boats embark on whale-watching tours of Cape Cod Bay and Stellwagen Bank, passing landmarks such as Gurnet Light and Clark's Island on their quest to find local sea birds and marine life. All the while, on-board naturalists educate passengers about the local ecosystem. But Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours' excursions aren't limited to observation—the boats also depart for private and group fishing trips ranging from just a few hours to multiple days. By dropping anchor or drifting with the tide, the captain teaches groups to ply the waters of local fishing grounds for seasonal catches.

Everything about the tour was great, especially the staff who educated us about the whales and the environment. We were lucky to see several different types of whales and saw two breach simultaneously which happens very seldom. A great experience!

Great day; saw three kinds of whales and a large Ocean sunfish; also experienced the whales "bubbling"
Donna C. · September 16, 2016
Was a great experience seeing nature first hand. Whales were most graceful in the water and their habits were amazing
