Cruising on a Blue Claw Boat Tour is about more than just seeing seals—as appealing as they may be. Case in point: “We had a woman onboard a few years ago who had lived in Orleans for over 50 years and had never once been out on the waterway between Orleans and Chatham,” captain Rob Wissmann recalls. “She was brought to tears by how beautiful the waterway is.”

From the dunes of the Cape Cod National Seashore, to the vibrant coastal scenery along Orleans and Chatham, to the fishermen offloading their catch at the Chatham Fish Pier, and to the hundreds of seals sunbathing along the barrier beach, Blue Claw offers a variety of sightseeing tours from early May through October. In addition to the Seal Watch Adventure Cruise, the company also offers a combined Seal Tour and Beachcomber Expedition—in which passengers get an hour to explore a barrier beach—and a Full Moon Cruise in Little Pleasant Bay. New tours for 2017 are the On the Water Scavenger Cruise and Lazy Lunch Cruise. Also, every Fourth of July the company’s three 17-passenger boats take guests out to Pleasant Bay to watch the holiday fireworks.
