Go on a whale watch!
Grab your sunscreen and get aboard one of the several boats leaving daily from Provincetown’s McMillan Pier and Barnstable Harbor. Enjoy the excitement of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary and the wealth of life it supports. Humpback whales are not the only species sighted. Some of the others include: Finback whale, Minke whale, Sei whale, Pilot whale, Dolphins & Porpoise.
Whale watches will last 3-4 hours and, depending on the time of year, whale sightings are virtually guaranteed. Private whale watches, while more expensive, will last longer and will likely bring you to places larger fleets just can’t reach.
