About Our Boat

Many of you have been asking for info on the boat you’ll be on for your whale watch, so we thought we’d post a picture so you could all check it out.

The boat we are using for our private whale watches is called the Dixie II, a 32 foot Blue Hill Marine (BHM). It has plenty of room to seat more than 6 passengers comfortably, as well as a covered cabin area. It is also used for fishing trips in addition to whale watching.

Here is a recent photo of the Dixie II (click to enlarge):

  1. hi:
    sounds interesting and exciting. For our family of 4 this could be a good alternative on Monday Aughust 24. How much will it cost?

  2. Hi Harsha! The cost really depends on what amenities you are looking for, how long you want to go, whether you want your trip catered, etc. Please email us using our contact form or give us a call at 508-221-5920. I think you’ll find our rates are very reasonable as far as private whale watching and charter boats go!

  3. I am interested in hiring the boat for a private whale watch for 2 possibly the during the second week of May. My biggest question is with the accessibility for the 2 of us. I am a stroke victim who can walk with limitations. My balance is poor so I am sure if I had to step down into the boat I would need assistance. Also, the other person has a bad knee and would more than likely need assistance.

    The other question is restroom facilities on the boat? Would that be accessible? If you could answer those couple of questions and I feel we could do it, I will be in touch with other questions such as amenities and cost.

    Thank you,

  5. The private whale watching sounds great. I ‘ve never been whale watching before and have recently been trying to plan a trip. Looking through all the tours on cape cod, I literally had no idea how crowded these boats got! I saw pictures and i was a little discouraged on how uncomfortable it might get after a few hours and will I be fighting to see the whales? Well when I saw your boat I am wondering how close youreally get to the whales? I understand that it can be dangerous for a smaller boat but do you accomodate to us if we would like to get a little closer? I understandably would take the advice of the captain on the dangers but would he follow the whale for a while. How much does something like this cost? What if we want to stay out longer or add more special things once on the ocean. Will we be refused our requests? charged more? or do we pay after the trip? What are some catering ideas you have to offer?
