Dozens of Humpback Whales Were Spotted off the coast of Cape Cod

Dozens of humpback whales have been spotted off the coast of Provincetown Cape Cod Massachusetts. Restrictions have been put into place to make sure the whales are protected.  “The biggest threat” in the past had been shop strikes, but a year ago the federal government passed a regulation to slow ship speeds up and down the eastern seaboard while these whales moved into the Cape Cod Coast.

Scientists said they are encouraged about the future of the whales, who have experienced a bit of a baby boom in recent years.  The hope is that the more people see these beautiful creatures, the better the commitment to help them thrive. You can go on a whale watch excursion from MacMillian Wharf in Provincetown, Massachusetts.  There is Dolphin Fleet or the Portuguese Princess Excursions.

So come to Provincetown for a few days not only to go whale watching but to enjoy some of the most beautiful beachs on the east coast.  You can  stay at one of the most distinctive and historic inns in Provincetown has to offer, The Revere Guest House. It will become one of your favorite Ptown accommodation.
