Whale watching — truly the experience of a lifetime!
Book your trip today.


If you do nothing else while on Cape Cod, come whale watching with us!

The beautiful Cape Cod weather has brought our water temperatures up and hungry whales are on the move searching for their next meal. Whales have been seen on 100% of our trips this season! Humpback, finback, and minke whales are all being sighted with regularity. Highlights have included humpback mothers and their 2019 calfs, Atlantic white sided dolphins, and even a huge basking shark!

Book now and join our experienced crew on a visit to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary to meet our biggest Cape Cod neighbors on the adventure of a lifetime!

The waters around Cape Cod consistently rank as one of the world’s top 10 whale watching destinations. With over thirty years experience and a sighting rate of 99%, Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises looks forward to providing you with a whale watch to remember.
