Captain Jesse was great. Obviously competent, but relaxed and easy-going. The boat was easy find and ready to go when we arrived. Jesse was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the whales. We saw quite a few, including white-sided dolphins! This was our first whale watching trip so I can't directly compare the experience of being on a smaller craft with only a few people to being on one of the big, crowded boats; it seems to me that our excursion is greatly preferable though. The trip exceeded expectations in every way. Finest kind.
We recently hired SeaSalt Charters for a private whale watching trip out of Provincetown. Captain Jesse was knowledgeable, friendly and professional and he made the trip a lot of fun for our grandchildren. Having a private boat allowed us the flexibility to quickly locate and spend time enjoying the whales in their natural environment without competing for space on the rail of a big boat or running side to side to catch sight and f the whales. I highly recommend SeaSalt charters and Captain Jesse and will absolutely use their services in the future.
We had a great experience. Chad was an excellent captain, he was very kind, knowledgeable and respectful towards the wildlife - one could see this was more his passion than his job. We were able to see many humpback whales at a surprisingly short distance from our boat. Definitely recommended.
The experience was amazing. We had a lot of fun! Will definitely charter with Sea Salt again!
Capt. Avellar is highly responsible not only with his passengers, but with the well being and safety of the whales under and around his boat. He possesses an in depth knowledge of the whale population of the area, and practices the guidelines of ethical whale watching, a level of integrity in which Sea Salt operates.
Captain Chad and SeaSalt Charters is the way to go! It was worth every penny and I would happily go again. We were limited to just one day to try the whale watching and I was worried about the weather and nervous that our trip would be cancelled due to the conditions. Captain Chad kept us up to date on the conditions and was very patient with all my questions. There were 6 of us and we all agree it was an absolutely amazing experience. Captain Chad took time to explain the history of the waterway, showed us different animals around the area, and explained the behaviors and even names of the whales we were seeing. We were able to view non-stop whale activity up close! It was beautiful, exciting, and even scary seeing how big they were next to our boat and yet so graceful. Wow!
Our captain was friendly and knowledgeable, and the boat was a great ride. They made special accommodations for us which was greatly appreciated.
We enjoyed our time with Sea Salt Charters very much. The captain, Chad, was very knowledgeable about the whales and did his best to get us good views without breaking regulations for observing whales in their natural environment, which was very important to me. We even got to see some calfs and one whale that breached. It was amazing, and we would do it again!
A real marvelous experience; we saw a lot of whales We were 6 on the boat Chad is very nice so as his friend who gave us a lot of explanations They are very concerned by the whales and nature protection It is much more interesting than a big boat
Our family of five went out of Providencetown on August 3,2017 for a private charter . We were warmly greeted by Capt. Jessie, our trip out to Stellwagon Bank area to see the Humpback whales was amazing ! Jessie made sure we saw the seal colony, and spent time telling us about the area. We were very fortunate the Humpback whales were only 7 miles out! Captain Jessie quickly spotted a family of theee humpbacks , who entertained us for hours! The Humpbacks were everywhere but these particular 3 gave us a great show! The professionalism and service and friendliness of Seasalt Charters was awesome! Our trip was fantastic and we would definitely use them again and again !
Everything was perfect! The captain was awesome at getting us to the right place, we saw LOTS of whales, including the famous Salt, we learned a lot about whales and whale conservation efforts, and we had the added bonus of a beautiful sunset on our way back. We could call this a once in a lifetime experience, except we will probably be back for other such trips! Thank you SeaSalt!!!!
Very professional captain - well maintained boat. Saw many more whales than expected and had a great afternoon.
Super Captain, funny time on the boat, thank you
Experienced captain, friendly, knowledable and put us and the whales first! Overall best whale watching experience ever! We can't wait to come back next year! Thank you Chad!
Excellent charter. Capt chad found the fin whales and minky whales. What an incredible experience we had on the sea salt. Private charter is the way to go. Capt Chad is very knowledgeable about the whales, the waters, and the surrounding areas. You cannot go wrong with this charter. We had a blast.
Very knowledgeale friendly fun captain Jessie stopped whenever he saw something interesting above and beyond the whales. We saw a seal jump. And we saw a large fin in thw watwr and explored and saw a shark Veryfun and exciting ride!
