Our original trip was scheduled for Sunday, but was cancelled. We rescheduled for Sept. 14th and it was a fantastic experience at sea. Beautiful sunshine and calm waters and whales everywhere. The naturalist on our cruise was very knowledgeable about the whales, porpoises and dolphins...More

It was a crazy windy bumpy day but we had a great time. The staff is awesome. Jake was so helpful and accommodating to my mother in a wheel chair. Take some dramamine and check the weather before you go if you get motion sick!

Very enjoyable trip. Had inside seats which allowed us to get out of the wind. Only saw two whales but very fascinating anyway. Would definitely recommend.

There were 4 of us in our little group who went to see the whales. The trip was excellent and we got up very close to some of the whales. Many beautiful photos. We were there in September and the weather was still beautiful.

We cruised with Hyannis last Aug 26th. We choosed them as great ratings at TripAdvisor, and we made the best choice. The boat is amazing. A new and modern one. Not one of those old ones... The explanations were great, and we saw MANY whales....More

Call or email them to see if they will mail one to you. There should be contact information on the website. I don’t know of a specific online retailer.
