Here Is How to Go Whale Watching on Cape Cod
As you look for the best ways to spend time in our area, we know the best charter to guide you through the aquatic highways. Here is everything you need to know about our friends at the Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch! This charter is based out of Provincetown, Massachusetts, located the northernmost point of the Cape Cod peninsula.
Before the Trip
Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch is open from mid-April to the end of October. This is the prime season for whale watching on Cape Cod!
All aboard the Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch for some incredible adventures! Before embarking on your journey, you’ll get an information session about whales and the other marine life that teem the waters of Cape Cod. The guides will help you understand more about these magnificent creatures and their roles in the ocean community. And, you’ll be educated on the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary and its role in protecting, serving, and helping marine life every day.
During the Experience
After learning about these creatures, you’ll board one of the four Dolphin Fleet boats in Provincetown Harbor. These charters provide you with a front row seat in the cabin or an incredible spot on the viewing outdoor deck. During your experience, one of the highly trained naturalists will give another presentation about what types of whales you may see.
Not only will you see various species of whales and other marine life, but also flocks of birds. Whether they are flying high or swooping into the water to catch prey, you may see northern gannets, pelagic birds, and much more! If you are an avid bird watcher, you’ll love this tour!
More Than Just Animals
Indeed, the native wildlife is a feature of the tours, but you’re sure to be delighted by the natural beauty of Cape Cod. As you glide across our deep blue waters, you will pass several stunning beaches, the National Cape Cod Shoreline, and many nature preserves. One of these natural havens is the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. This peaceful, 842-square-mile sanctuary features a no-poaching or hunting zone to preserve the precious marine life of Cape Cod.
