Paddlewheel harbor cruise, fishing trip, whale watch: These boats do it all
Cruise around a scenic harbor, see a whale emerge from Cape Cod Bay, fish for haddock, enjoy a quick trip to Provincetown: You can do all of that on board the vessels of Captain John Boats. The Pilgrim Belle, a classic paddlewheel boat, is a great way to view historic Plymouth Harbor. (Private charters are available, too.) Want something farther out? Go on a whale watch out of Plymouth or Provincetown, in search of humpbacks, minkes, finbacks and right whales in their prime feeding grounds. Or go deep-sea fishing for cod, haddock and mackerel. Want to combine a land-and-sea adventure? Take the scenic fast ferry out of Plymouth and be in Provincetown 90 minutes later. Boats have comfortable cabins, with galley service.
