Let us help your group and arrange post whale watch field trips and/or lectures about the ecology of Cape Cod and its unique bird life through the Massachusetts Audubon Society or the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.
From April through October you can join the Dolphin Fleet on a voyage to see whales, pelagic birds and other marine life as they return to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary and the surrounding waters. Dolphin Fleet is the oldest and most experienced whale watching company in the northeast with trips departing daily out of Provincetown. In addition to the possible sightings of many species of whales such as the humpback, finback, minke or pilot whales. Seals, dolphins and other marine species often are seen during the trip.
Our naturalists will introduce participants to the identification and natural history of seabirds and other life found offshore. Scientific data is collected during the voyage on the abundance, the activity and identification of species observed during each trip. The scientific data collected is shared with other organizations and institutions to better understand the marine life we have within the region. This is a wonderful trip for nature enthusiasts worldwide to enjoy. For more information call 1-800-826-9300
