Set sail this summer on a relaxing Cape Cod cruise

Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch

Founded in 1975 as New England’s first whale-watching cruise, Dolphin Fleet offers a one-of-a-kind experience in the waters off Provincetown. “It’s not often you get to see a 40-foot animal in its natural habitat,” says owner Steve Milliken. “Until you’re actually 100 or so feet away from them, you don’t realize how large they really are. It’s quite breathtaking, almost like what Herman Melville would’ve described.”

Not only will passengers have the chance to observe these awe-inspiring creatures—including humpbacks, finbacks and minkes—they’ll also learn more from the marine biologists as well as the many hands-on displays and activities onboard the Dolphin Fleet’s four 150-passenger vessels. All boats offer heated and air-conditioned cabins and serve breakfast, lunch and cocktails. Cruises often make their way through the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. With each whale watch, Milliken says the crew aims to educate passengers on the importance of protecting this sanctuary and all other natural whale habitats. “We want our guests leaving knowing something new about the whales and how important they are to the world.” Dolphin Fleet offers three- to four-hour trips daily, April through October.
