Whales Galore -Flag review
Provincetown is the perfect location to take your whale watch. You don't have to wait too long before you see the amazing creatures and you feel like you're a part of a National Geographic documentary. The trip is shorter then others in New England since the geography of P-town is where Whales live best in the area!
Tips for Families
Take dramamine for sea sickness before getting on the boat. Stick with carbs for snacks - bring sunscreen. Although there are plenty of indoor seats with windows, you want to be outside looking at the whales all around you. They are so close- it's beautiful! Even restless children are captivated to see something so massive and alive right next to your boat!

Our family of 4 just took this tour yesterday. The Dolphin Fleet tour was recommended by a local. I do think they may be a little pricier than others (we paid 39.00 each with AAA discount and we saw signs for 34.00-36.00 on the docks for other tours). However, this is a responsible tour company with respect to the sea life. They love their whales and have a conservationist on board who knows EVERYTHING there is to know about whales and sea life in general. They also support whale research. We were on their newest boat and it was spotless and our cruise was very smooth. Crew was friendly and let the patrons get up and move around once we were out of the harbor. If you get on early (line up in front of the boa...
I have been going on Dolphin Fleet whale watches *gulp* for over 30 years. We went on them when I was a kid, and now I take my kids on one every summer when we go to the Cape. I have only ever been on one trip, during that whole period when we didn't see any whales. The tours would have to be pretty damn special for me to keep shelling out money for this many years in a row. This year, we were treated to a brand new boat. Although the boats have always been clean, and freshly painted, this year was outstanding. There is plenty of space both inside the boat and out for everyone to see when the whales are close, and to be inside on the rides to and from the dock. This year we saw about 8 whales on our exc...
