Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival Cape Cod
It’s now time to slow down the pace, whether you’re arriving from Boston, New York, or Kingston, you’ll notice the more relaxed atmosphere as you cross the bridge on to the Cape Cod Peninsula. This is where the relaxing part of your journey begins. Check into a motel-style hotel with a pool in Hyannis, the perfect base for a visit to Cape Cod with nice cafes and restaurants in the city centre. There is a lot to do on Cape Cod and the peninsula is small so exciting day trips are always just around the corner.
Today is a beach day!
Today you are free to do as you please, if the sun is shining then it is time to head to one of the many beaches. For a quieter option you can venture to Cape Cod National Seashore, you pay an entrance fee but it is well worth it with many lighthouses, beaches, forests and lakes throughout. If you go to Nauset Light Beach you can swim and dive with the waves or you’ll find calmer waters in Cahoon Hollow Beach, which is ideal for sun lovers and a great place to grab a bite to eat, try the Beachcomber restaurant.
Departure from Cape Cod
Before you move onto your next destination, spend the morning on the beach or head back into the Cape Cod National Seashore for a hike. If you’re heading to Boston, make a stop in Plymouth along the way, it’s where he first European settlers landed and you can experience what life was like in an open-air museum.
Whale watching tour
Today you’ll take a boat to the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary to learn about marine life and the animals that live off the New England coast. Then, it’s time to go and search for some whales! Departure time depends on the tide, so you’ll either head out in the morning or in the afternoon, being told in advance what time your tour starts. Since it can be quite cool at sea, we recommend that you wear warm clothes and closed shoes. After a few hours of enjoying the views and making the most of this special phenomenon, you’ll head back to mainland with memories to last a lifetime.
