Is it possible to go whale-watching on Cape Cod?
Cape Cod is recognized as one of the top locations in the world for whale-watching. The whale-watching season stretches from April to October and depending on time of year it’s possible to see North Atlantic right whales, humpback whales, minke whales, finback whales and dolphins. The Dolphin Fleet whale watches leave out of Provincetown several times a day during season. During the 2015 Season, every single guest that booked a Whale Watch with Dolphin Fleet saw multiple whales, up close! This is the place to be if you are intrigued by our giant mammal friends.
