Whether they take to the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod Bay, Buzzards Bay, or Vineyard and Nantucket Sounds, The Inn at Yarmouth Port guests enjoy learning about Cape Cod’s sea life. And the habitats of seals and sharks are becoming increasingly popular.
Looking for new ways to learn more about these amazing creatures? These options receive rave reviews from our guests.
If simply seeking a glimpse of a cute (also HUGE) friendly seal, head to the Chatham Fish Pier before noon. See the opportunistic seals trying to catch leftovers as our fishermen unload their catch.
Be sure to stop in at the Chatham Pier Fish Market to grab what’s thought to be one of the best lobster rolls on Cape Cod!
Or drop in on a beach yoga class at sunrise (daily at 7:30 am beginning in June) with Chatham Lighthouse Beach Yoga. The seals watch and seemingly participate from the Chatham sand bars.
Every year we learn more about the elusive shark population who visit the cool waters off Cape Cod. Visitors eager to interact with them are treated to wonderfully responsible shark ecotourism options throughout the Cape.
Start with the Shark Museum (in Chatham and Provincetown) hosted by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, to learn more about their research into the local shark population.
Then head to the waters with a responsible Cape Cod shark tour operator, who will stay far enough offshore that you will witness the shark’s natural behavior. White Shark Tours of Cape Cod or Monomoy Sport Fishing are popular options.
We are the perfect central location for your Cape Cod adventure – and a short drive to your Cape Cod seal and shark tour excursions.
