Seal Watch Adventure Cruise

Most Popular! | $45-$50

Our Seal Cruise takes you on a sightseeing adventure as you travel from Orleans to Chatham Harbor to view the seal colony. Cruising along, you encounter islands, salt marshes, birds, and the dunes of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Hear stories of pilgrims and pirates, seals, sharks, and shipwrecks. We also offer a special SEALS at SUNSET cruise.

We specialize in private custom cruises!

We have three USCG inspected boats allowing us to offer our customers more options. We travel twice as far as other tours to offer viewing opportunities of Pleasant Bay, its islands, and the dual inlets of the Cape Cod National Seashore that other tours simply do not offer.

Top-Rated Sightseeing Cruise in Orleans, MA


“Captain Rob took out our group of 12 on a stunning Sunday morning and we had a lovely time. captain rob was full of stories and information. The boat was clean and smooth. We had one elderly passage and Captain Rob was kind and solicitous in making sure she was well cared for. We’d go out with him again for sure!” – Lisa O.

"Great day on the water"

“This was a spectacular experience. Captain Tom was excellent and extremely knowledgeable . We saw hundreds of seals, Chatham lighthouse, Chatham fish pier and so much more. We actually live on the Cape but decided to spend the day as tourists and we are so glad we did. I would highly recommend this tour.” – Linda F.

"Sunset and Seals"

“Did the Sunset and Seals tour with Capt Rob and it was fantastic! 5 of us on the tour and it was unanimous. Rob was knowledgeable about local history and answered any and all questions. We saw lots of seals in and out of the water. Hundreds were on a nearby sandbar and we were just a few yards away. One of the best things we’ve ever done on the Cape on the 20 plus years we’ve been visiting! I highly recommend Blue Claw Boat tours!” – Susan V.
