Whale Watching in Provincetown

A whale watch tour is ranked as one of the top activities for Cape Cod and Provincetown.  As you depart traveling along the National Seashore you will view the beaches, lighthouses and the very tip of Cape Cod.  A naturalist accompanies every cruise to serve as an interpretive guide to the ecology and natural history of Cape Cod and Massachusetts Bays with emphasis on whales, other marine life and marine birds that passengers are likely to see.  The tours last from 3 to 4 hours.  Each boat has a sundeck, centrally heated /air conditioned cabin and viewing platform on the bow. It can be cool on the water this time of year so be sure to bring warm clothing.

‘Perfect Day’, ‘Great Trip’, and ‘Got a lifetime experience to cherish’ are some of the reviews of the whale watching tours.  This is one Provincetown activity you  can’t miss.  Every guest from our B&B that has taken the tour brings back rave reviews.

The Somerset House Inn has made your whale watching tour even easier.  Book any three-night stay during May, including the Memorial Day Weekend, and the Somerset House Inn will give you a 50% discount on two whale watching tickets.  That’s a $53 value!  Mention ‘Whale Watch’ when making your reservations and we will assist you with your whale watch tour reservations.

Ptown Dan and his partner Bob own the Somerset House Inn, an award winning Provincetown Bed and Breakfast.  Named the Best Bed and Breakfast on Cape Cod for 2018 by Cape Cod Magazine the Somerset House Inn is in the perfect Commercial Street location across the street from the water and walking distance to everything.  Please visit the Somerset House Inn web site to make your reservations.  We look forward to welcoming you to Provincetown.
