Humpback waving goodbye

Whale Watching in Cape Cod: Whale of a Good Time

+North America +Whales +Road Trip
Taking advantage of a long weekend we headed to Provincetown in the Cape Cod region of Massachusetts. Our route took us through the quaint waterfront town of Mystic, Connecticut, followed by a stop in Newport and the rocky Rhode Island shoreline. We set up camp a few minutes from Provincetown where we spent the next couple of days walking through the narrow streets, eating delicious seafood and whale watching in search of Humpbacks. As we headed out of the Cape we made a stop in Chatham to see the seals of Monomoy island that make the beach their home.
