Whale Watching Tours:
Whale watching tours depart Plymouth Harbor daily. Assisted by spotter planes whale sightings are guaranteed. It has been said that in colonial times "the whales in Cape Cod Bay were so abundant that a man could walk from Plymouth to Provincetown upon their backs without getting his feet wet". While likely a bit of an exaggeration there is no doubt that Cape Cod Bay is still a favorite summer playground for these majestic and graceful creatures. A portion of every ticket sold helps fund research into preserving the habits and protection of the whales, to insure their survival for future generations to come. www.CaptJohn.com
