Summer Whale Watching

From April through October the opportunity to watch the whales will be plentiful, especially during the summer months. Charter a tour through Monomoy Sportsfishing in Chatham and let the knowledgeable and responsible guides lead you to the places the whales like to frolic. Be careful to keep from doing anything to harm these massive creatures.

Ahoy There, Mateys!

Rainy days can put a monkey wrench in your summer activities, but your ace in the hole will be a visit to the Whydah Pirate Museum in Yarmouth, which holds real pirate treasures and genuine artifacts that include cannons and pistols salvaged from pirate ships! If the rain stays away, this interesting museum is the perfect way to say farewell to Cape Cod; your last day won’t be so sad when you participate in this summer activity!

The Show Must Go On

Summer theater has been a Cape Cod tradition almost as long as we have been a vacation destination and the Cape Playhouse, located in Dennis, offers the best shows in town. Take in a Broadway show and marvel at the talented performers, who we think could star anywhere in the world; it’s a tribute to the Cape that they choose to stay here and perform for you!
