Seal Watch Adventure Cruise
Want to see seals up close, swimming and sunbathing in their natural habitat, this is the cruise for you!
Orleans to Chatham Harbor
As you travel from Orleans to Chatham Harbor, you will pass by marshes and islands with history – one with rumored pirate treasure. On this Seal Watch Adventure Cruise the dunes of Nauset Beach, the Cape Cod National Seashore and beyond, the Atlantic Ocean are in view. Arriving in Chatham Harbor, you will visit with the local seal colony who are swimming in groups or might be hauled out on a sandbar, sunbathing and “singing”. Every trip is a different experience! On this adventure, you’ll stop by the Chatham Fish Pier to check if the local fishing boats are offloading their catch of the day, an interesting and educational process. On the journey back to Orleans sit back and relax, taking in the wonderful scenery of Pleasant Bay.
Private Charters, just for you and your party along with the captain, are very personal and interactive experiences. You are welcome to bring along beverages and snacks. There will be an appropriate time for refreshments, the captain will discuss this prior to departure.
