Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises
Cape Cod's Finest Whale Watching

2020 Whale Watching Season Update: May 18th

Today the Governor’s office released details of the four phase plan to reopen Massachusetts businesses. Based on these revised protocols we hope to be up and running by the beginning of July. Please check back for further updates. While our physical offices remain closed, you can email us here or leave a voicemail at 508-362-6088 with any questions or concerns. In the meantime, we are working hard to ensure you experience the safest and finest whale watch adventure in New England.

A real tease for all of us sitting on shore this past week was the sighting of a blue whale, the largest animal to ever live on Earth, just off Cape Cod by researchers on a aerial survey. We can’t wait to get back on the water!
