The tour was great! However, the parking in Plymouth is HORRENDOUS! We were late returning and ended up with a parking ticket. Something should be done by the town to have the tours issue a token to explain why people are late at their meters. Also, 4 hours is not enough time to eat, have the tour and to explore.

We had to wait in the sun for quite a while to get on the boat, and there were no bathrooms nearby. Once on, they played loud music a couple of times, which was annoying. Other than that, the crew was friendly and competent, the naturalist on board knew her stuff, and we had a brilliant time. I would go again- just pee first and bring an umbrella.

Super! The captain was hoping to see a different whale at one place but when that didn't pan out he went where he knew there would be whales! You can't always predict where the whales will be but he knew what he was doing and tried to give us the best experience. It was amazing to see these huge creatures!

Great trip, great staff. We inadvertently scheduled for the wrong day, the staff still honored our Groupons. The trip was very informative and enjoyable. I highly recommend them!

About Captain John Boats

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.
