Wright Whales feeding near Cape Cod Bay


Only an estimated 400 North Atlantic wright whales are still in existence and about half of these endangered animals are currently feeding in the waters off Cape Cod.  "We have had the richest early season we have ever had," said Charles Mayo, the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies wright whale specialist. There were 19 documented wright whale births this year and those babies are expected to be traveling with their moms.

The zooplankton that wright whales feed on are plentiful this year in the waters around Cape Cod. What a sight to see these amazing whales skimming the surface of the ocean with their enormous mouths wide open enjoying the bounty. They will soon be heading north to their summer feeding grounds off Nova Scotia.

An opportunity to watch this rarest of leviathans feed is available with a Whale Watch package currently being offered by the 1750 Inn at Sandwich Center. The package includes 2 nights in one of the lovely guest rooms at the historic inn and 2 tickets for a Whale Watch Cruise out of Barnstable Harbor. Also included in this package is a fabulous full breakfast each morning. If you want to stay longer so that you can explore the villages and back roads of Cape Cod, a reduced rate is available for additional days when you book one of the many affordable packages offered by the 1750 Inn at Sandwich Center.

Just give us a call at 508-888-6958 or book your reservation online from our website.
