We had never been, and will definitely do this again!!! The boat had plenty of room, the snacks and drinks made the slower times relaxing as well. Great staff and experience!!!

This really exceeded my expectations--especially for the price. We saw so many whales & they gave us a great "show!" Sit close to a speaker if you want to here the narrative. We couldn't hear well due to boat noise & noisy neighbors. Would have...More

I've been on dozens of Dolphin Fleet whale watches over the span of about 30 years. I have never been disappointed. The crew is knowledgeable and the boats are large and clean. There is really no bad seat on the boat. The food on board...More

Yes go to Provincetown. After the trip there are lots of shops to walk around and nice restaurants. We booked, but some people turned up and were lucky to get a seat on the day. It's the same price so you might as well book... More

We went on the 10am cruise which I understand is better because the waters and winds are usually calmer! If you have the opportunity try to do the morning cruise!

we were there in October and saw hundreds of whales. I had never seen so many. that area is a rich feeding grounds for whales so chances are usually pretty good. but contact the fleet and ask.
