Seal Watch Adventure Cruise

Available After Sept 16 as a Private Custom Cruise.

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. View the Chatham Lighthouse and stop by the Chatham Fish Pier.

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

"Excellent"

“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.

"Always look forward to the experience"

“We choose to go in this same tour every year and every year we are satisfied! Our family enjoys the tour along with our favorite Captain Rob with all his information and his kindness! We find ourselves coming back every year to see all the seals, the Chatham homes, and checking out the fisherman dumping their fish. The ride is fun, and we recommend a sweatshirt if you get cold easily! If you are looking to see a lot of seals, head to blue claw and visit our favorite captain!”- Kelley D

"Great tour, great captain, perfect size boat"

“Our family loved this tour. The boat is just the right size. There were 12 people so not over crowded and plenty of space to get a good view. The captain is extremely knowledgeable and the seals were amazing. We saws hundreds of them. This was perfect!”-ljmichaud
