Summertime has arrived and so has spectacular whale watching. We have seen whales on every trip this season and every trip has been different! We've seen humpback, finback and minke #whales, and at times, huge numbers of Atlantic white-sided dolphins. Seals and seabird sightings round out a true North Atlantic adventure. Hope to see you aboard!

Book now so you’re on board when our jet-powered, state of the art vessel Whale Watcher heads offshore to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary for an unforgettable encounter with the whales. 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 the whale watching adventure of a lifetime!

Experience a Sunset Whale Watch

Summer Sunset over the Bay

Here’s your chance to combine the best of both worlds: the excitement of a whale watch with the splendor of a sunset cruise. After bidding farewell to those magnificent marine mammals, we’ll sail southwest across the bay as the golden light of late day explodes into technicolor hues of pink, orange, violet and gold. Grab your camera and a cocktail from the galley as you sit back and enjoy one of the Cape’s most memorable spectacles on your return to the harbor. Sunset Whale Watches are scheduled for August 15, August 26 and August 30. They depart the dock between 3:30pm and 4:30pm on select days. Check the schedule page for exact departure times and to book your trip.
