Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises
Cape Cod's Finest Whale Watching

Thank You for a Great 2019 Season!

We look forward to seeing you in April.


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

The whales will soon be heading south to their breeding grounds for the winter. The humpback, finback, and minke whales along with Atlantic white sided dolphins and harbor porpoises have made our autumn whale watches a treat for all who have joined us. We look forward to seeing you back on board in 2020.

Our 2020 schedule will be posted by the end of the year but gift certificates are available all year long.  Plan to 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 when the whales and warmer temperatures return in the spring.

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.
