Best we can tell, most places on the Cape only rent bikes. There are several scooter- and moped-rental shops on Martha's Vineyard, most probably because the roads here are a little less congested and therefore safer. Check this page for listings: http://www.sunsol.com/ccvd/bikerent.html. Generally speaking, everything on Martha's Vineyard tends to be a little more expensive given that it's an island and it costs more to get supplies there.
As for whale watches, there are two on the Cape: Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises (www.whales.net), which departs from the mid Cape (Barnstable Harbor, just off Route 6A) at exit 6 off Route 6; the other, the Dolphin Fleet (www.whalewatch.com), departs from MacMillan Wharf in Provincetown. A whale watch is a whale watch, really, so it's hard to say one is better than the other. Where you're staying on the Cape (Upper, Mid or Outer Cape) will determine which is most convenient. Both excursions have naturalists on board but, if interested, the Provincetown Dolphin Fleet does have naturalists from the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies on board -- both whale watches visit Stellwagen Bank, off the coast of Provincetown. The Barnstable departure does include a nice cruise along Cape Cod Bay, and passengers can take in the coast of the towns of Barnstable (including Sandy Neck Village and Sandy Neck Light, Yarmouth Port, Dennis, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro, and the Pilgrim Monument in the town of Provincetown as well as its Bay-side beaches). For possible sea sickness, SeaBands, which go around the wrist, are readily available at most pharmacies and are highly effective. In the event of non-sightings of whales, both whale watches will take passengers out on a free cruise either during their stay or on another stay.
