A wonderful vacation activity. Being out on the water is fun by itself. Seeing whales is amazing. The boats are comfortable, clean, and the tour announcer knowledgeable. Recommend!

Great whale watching. The whales come right up to the boat and look at you. A must see!

A 3 1/2 hour cruise will allow you to "commune" with these giant beasts. If you've never done this you owe it to yourself and your children to experience this awe inspiring trip. Just be sure to go when the sea is calm.

We often go on whale watches and the Dolphin Fleet is a great choice. If your willing to take a trip out to Provincetown a Whale watch is a great choice because weather Newburyport, Boston, Plymouth or Ptown, they all go to the same area and you have to go by Ptown to get there!

This is an absolute must do in Ptown. We went over Labor Day weekend and it completely blew me a way. Book a trip with Dolphin Fleet and you won't regret it.

It’s not uncommon to spot a few seals off the shores of Cape Cod, but the surrounding waters are also the feeding grounds for humpback whales. Whether from the ferry or while taking part in an organized watch, you’ll never forget the moment you first catch a glimpse of one of these handsome and impressively large mammals that thankfully, after decades of conservation efforts, are finally coming back from the brink of extinction.

You can travel 60 minutes up to Provincetown, visit the waterfront, and take a Whalewatching cruise to see some amazing views of whales right in Cape Cod Bay!

We highly recommend taking a whale watching tour (our favorite is the late afternoon sunset tour) out of Provincetown. The Dolphin Fleet is renowned for their expertise, they have naturalists on board whose knowledge of the ocean and it's inhabitants will leave you well informed and entertained. The sight of the whales breaching and swimming alongside the ship will provide you with memories for a lifetime.

This is a great Whale watching trip. If you get seasick easy then take precaution this boat whisks you out there and back. They really deliver you a whale watching show.

A fun family outing and the restaurants in P-town are awesome! Try the Red Hut and sit at town hall to people watch while eating lunch.

If you are interested in going whalewatching, this is the place. It is a much shorter trip from here than from Barnstable Harbor. One is guaranteed to see lots of whales, that is if the Norwegians and the Japanese stop killing them.
How absolutely beautiful, but it is a +6hr. trip so bring a sweater and a sandwich.

Seeing whales up close & personal is an experience your guests will remember for a lifetime! In fact so much so our daughter is now a Marine Biologist attached to the Hubbs Sea World Research Institute & has been studying Orca Whales for almost 10 years!

They are amazing and the dolphin Fleet staff know all about the whales, where they breed and eat etc. Hyannis or P-Town departures and the whales are very interactive with the boats. They are familiar with the fleet, makes it all the better!

We went to see whales with Dolphin fleet whalewatching couple of years back. The whales were surfacing almost next to our ship. Ship was of sturdy condition and travel time to see the whales reasonable. If rough seas are expected better take some precautions against sea sickness.
