Smart idea to have parking away from the shore side. You park at their store and take a complimentary shuttle to the boat. Friendly and knowledgeable staff take you out to see on an exciting ride. Fast boat but not too fast for little ones....More

There were tons of seals and we were as close as we could safely get. The length of time is great for kids. Our teenagers enjoyed it as well. I could have stayed out longer and just looked at all the incredible houses on the...More

I would highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Chatham - make sure you bring a long sleeve shirt or jacket as it's very windy. The views are beautiful, the seals are fun and plentiful and Captain Skip knows his info. Thanks, Beachcomber Tours!
