How often do the cruises run?

We offer cruises from May to October, weather permitting.  We run 7 days a week at a time that works for you and provides the best scenario for seal watching.  We take into account the tides and weather forecast when booking your cruise, so please call us and we can discuss what time works best for you.

What should we bring?

Bring your Camera, Hat, Sunglasses, Sunscreen and a Jacket or Sweatshirt.  It is typically cooler on the water.

What kind of seals will we see?

We will be a little over a mile out from the Harbor. Grey and Harbor Seals make their home here. Many times we see other interesting wildlife as we go out and come back. You will see local lighthouses as well as the coastline of Rockport. If there is something in particular you are interested in let the captain know and he will try to accommodate.

Do you go out an all weather?

Since the weather is unpredictable, we sometimes have to determine that a trip will be unpleasant or unsafe.  In this case, we will let you know and try to reschedule your trip. If we do not go out, you do not pay.

Is there a to Bathroom on the boat?

The is no bathroom on the boat. We recommend that you visit the restrooms at the beginning of T Wharf before your trip.

Where is the best place to park?

If you are lucky, you may find a place on T Wharf, just be aware that one side is for the public and one for Rockport residents only. Parking is monitored. There are metered spots around town. There is free parking about 1 mile out of town and a trolley brings you right downtown. There is a small charge for the trolley.

Where do you meet for the cruise?

We meet at the end of T Wharf. Seaweed (which is Green) will be tied up at the dock. Welcome aboard.
