Overview
More
The seals of Monomoy are a rare treat seen close up from the shallow drafting seal watch vessel Perserverance. You will glide though narrow channels and into isolated lagoons where hundreds, sometimes thousands of Gray Seals swim and lay out along the shore. And you will spy sea birds and once in a while, the shadow of a great white shark passes by. Some of the best ocean fun adventure for your family.

On our trip we didn’t see seals at the first few locations. Our captain kept going, even out to some rougher waters and then we saw hundreds! The captain did a great job navigating the waves.

This was an excellent excursion to visit the seals on Monomoy Island and the surrounding area. The crew were professional and the entire experience was just perfect. The weather was also postcard-perfect, if a bit cold.
