The seal tour of Monomoy Island was fabulous! Be warned that it is a bumpy and wet ride out to/from Monomoy Island but well worth any discomfort. Cpt. Keith was a wealth of information and brought us in close to shore to get superb photos...More

Thank you for your comments. Just want to clarify a few things. The day of your trip we had deteriorating weather, which caused the bumpy ride, that is why we only did the one trip that day. Your "where are you" call is standard practice...More
