Duration - one hour Enjoy a relaxing Harbor Tour with live narration of the whaling days, shipwrecks, pirates and pilgrims. Our cruise takes us within yards of the scenic Long Point Lighthouse and the very tip of Cape Cod. You'll learn interesting facts about the history and wildlife of this famous harbor. And just a short distance from our dock we can view Provincetown fishing vessels against the backdrop of the Pilgrim Monument.
Each day we see a variety of different sea birds and marine life. Check out our Photo Gallery for some examples of things we have seen on previous trips. For more about the harbor, see the Wikipedia page.
Critter Cruise - Adults $25, Kids $20
Offered 2-3 times daily during July and August and also at select times during May, June, September, and October. Duration - one hour and 15 minutes. The "Critter Cruise" won Cape Cod Life magazine's 2010 Gold Readers' Choice Award for BEST KIDS' ACTIVITY on the Outer Cape for the third time!
Every afternoon we roll up our sleeves to get some hands-on experience. One of our guests named this trip the "Critter Cruise" when they saw all of the critters we discovered, that name stuck! An expert naturalist will be our guide as we explore the local marine world. You can help pull up a lobster pot or a bottom dredge and see what's inside.
We keep some of the catch in our "Tide Pool Touch Tank" while we learn more about them. The touch tank is a miniature marine habitat that allows us to see all of our "critters" in a natural setting.
As the name suggests, the touch tank has a few species that you will be able to touch. Our naturalist will show you how to handle each one safely, and without injury to the animal. We practice "catch and release" which means that all of our catch is later returned, unharmed, to the area that it was collected from.
Sunset Lighthouse Cruises - $27
Offered most evenings and by private charter throughout the season. Duration - 90 minutes. Every day, as dusk approaches, the harbor is transformed by the fiery colors of the setting sun. Sea birds return to roost on the breakwater as we take a gentle cruise close past Long Point Lighthouse within view of two more lighthouses and through our quiet anchorage in the harbor.
You can toast the end of the day, or the beginning of the night life in Provincetown with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and refreshments!
