Whale Watching Cruises off the Island of Martha’s Vineyard

Experience these majestic ocean creatures on a Cape Cod Whale Watching Tour.

The history of whaling and the history of New England are intertwined. Moby Dick was written here. Now you can experience the thrill of seeing these majestic animals on a Whale Watching Excursion — offered through Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises — departing from scenic Barnstable Harbor on Cape Cod.

If your vacation schedule allows it, we highly recommend that you include a trip to Hyannis (where Barnstable Harbor is located) — either before you take your trip to Martha’s Vineyard — or after you depart the Island. Hyannis is approximately 45-minutes by car from Woods Hole, Mass. and 35 minutes from Falmouth, Mass.

The Whale Watching Excursion is approximately 3-1/2 hours in duration and includes expert naturalists on-board that provide commentary on the whales and local ecology, as well as entertaining history about our region. Hyannis is also the home of the John F. Kennedy Museum and many specialty shops, galleries, and boutiques. Go to their website to view rates and schedules for the 2014 season; click here. Our Concierge can also assist you if you would like more information.
