Water Sports in Provincetown

Boat Tours of Cape Cod

Provincetown obviously has a thriving art and culture scene, as well as frequent events throughout the year. But don't forget that you are minutes away from the most famous water landmark in America–Cape Cod. As such, you can hop in the water from the many beaches on the coast.

Water sports are a great activity to pass your time with your loved ones or friends. Whether you have brought your own equipment, or you're renting or paying for a day on a charter, there is unlimited fun potential when you're out on the open water. Let's see what you can do!

Monomoy Island Excursions

Want to start your Massachusetts vacation right? Start off your trip with a cruise to see seals! You'll get the chance to hop in a boat and ride down to Monomoy Island. This sliver of land was dedicated to the preservation of local wildlife and migratory birds. It's the perfect getaway to get away from the hustle and bustle of Massachusetts.

What animals can you see on a Monomoy Island Excursion?

Obviously, you also get to see the seals. These blubbery "water doggos" are graceful creatures in the water, but you are most likely to see them congregating on the shores. It's truly a sight to behold. You'll also get a chance to see other creatures in the water, like some of the aforementioned migratory birds and maybe a shark if you're lucky! Bring a camera, you won't want to miss capturing these unforgettable moments.

If you have any questions about materials to bring, check out the seal cruise's website.

Cape Cod Fishing Charters

As mentioned before, deep sea fishing is one of the most popular activities in Cape Cod. As such, there are plenty of fishing charters you can rent or board so you can have a fantastic fishing experience.

How much is a fishing charter in Cape Cod?

The price of the boat will depend on the kind of fish you are looking for, the amount of time you want to spend on the water, and the time of year. For example, $600 will allow you to rent a charter for three hours if you are searching for striped bass.

Knowing what you owe the charter can get confusing, so look at their website for rates as you plan your Cape Cod vacation! Additionally, make sure you have your fishing license so you can keep some of your treasures.
