Whale watching started in Provincetown in 1975 and has grown into one of the town’s most popular activities. On this 3-4 hour tour people can expect to see humpback and fin whales off the coast. Because of the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean, it’s a good idea to dress warmly, but most importantly take photos and make memories.

On this self-guided tour, you’ll explore the Pilgrim monument and Provincetown Museum. The Pilgrim Monument was founded to commemorate the Mayflower Pilgrims’ first landing in the New World in Provincetown, in November 1620. The Provincetown Museum is a charming mix of the old and the new. Exhibits highlight the arrival of the Mayflower Pilgrims, the town’s rich maritime history, the early days of modern American theater in Provincetown, and the building of the monument.
