Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch

Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch

New England’s First and Finest Whale Watch

Seeing whales is just part of the fun
The Dolphin VI is one of the four vessels that departs from Provincetown harbor to the Sanctuary. Each vessel has a heated cabin for those cool days in the spring and fall months assuring comfort for each trip.Upon boarding our vessels, passengers are handed a field guide detailing the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary and the marine life you may encounter.This guide will also explain the important role The Dolphin Fleet had in developing and being the first whale watching excursion on the east-coast of the United States.

The Dolphin VII offers the same comforts as the Dolphin VI. During each trip all four vessels are in communication, and at times may travel to different locations in search of whales and other marine life. Being a fleet, this constant communication and ability to broaden our search gives us an advantage of finding the best whale behavior and other species of marine life. Covering larger areas of the sanctuary and surrounding waters to find the most productive areas is an essential part of a successful whale watch.

The Dolphin VIII, is slightly larger than the VI and VII. It is a perfect vessel for groups of 150 people or more as it was designed and built to comfortably carry larger groups. Each of the four vessels have clean snack bars that serve full breakfast and lunch. The vessels are also licensed to sell alcoholic beverages. Items such as film and souvenirs may also be purchased on-board . Each vessel has two restrooms that are kept clean at all times.

The Dolphin IX has become one of Dolphin Fleet’s newer vessels. It too was built by Gulfcraft Inc. as are the other vessels in the fleet. The Dolphin IX offers ample seating on the upper deck for those who like lots of sunshine. This vessel is also able to carry over 150 passengers comfortably and has been refurbished to Dolphin Fleet standards. With upgraded electronics and a flying bridge, it allows our passengers even more viewing space from the second level.
