Welcome to the sandy shores of Cape Cod. Extending some 70 miles into the sea, the Cape is home to both natural beauty and quaint colonial villages. A local guide will meet us at the hotel and will assist with check-in. You will receive a complimentary print by a local artist just for coming along. Dinner is included this evening.
After breakfast, our guide will meet us at the hotel for a full day of touring. We will travel historic Route 6A, the Old King's Highway, a scenic byway winding through centuries of Cape Cod history. The highway winds past hundreds of historic structures which characterize its early development. View the Eastham Windmill, a Cape Cod Lighthouse and visit the Cape Cod National Seashore Visitor Center. Sand dunes and the ocean surround you as you approach "Land's End" - Provincetown. You are now at the extreme tip of Cape Cod. Take some time to enjoy the wonderful variety of restaurants for lunch on your own, shops, and galleries that make this artists/fishermen village so unique. Board an excursion vessel for an amazing experience of whale watching. You will travel into the natural habitat of a diverse marine environment including birds that migrate here from all over the Atlantic, and fish which use these shallow waters to feed. Try to spot Humpback, Minke, and Fin whales going about their daily business. An onboard naturalist will introduce you to everything you see and will answer any of your questions about the whales, birds, fish and lighthouses OR you may choose to stay on dry land on a dune tour. Ride along the shoreline of the protected lands of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Your guide will point out the "dune shacks" where famous artists and writers became inspired to create their art. Dinner is included this evening in Provincetown.
Following breakfast at the hotel, the local guide will conduct a tour of Hyannis including the John F. Kennedy Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, Hyannisport and a view of St. Francis Xavier Church, the summer parish of the Kennedy Family. Following our tour, we will board the Cape Cod Central Railroad and feel the thrill as the whistle blows and your fun-filled adventure begins. Enjoy an included box lunch as you pass beautiful cranberry bogs, natural woodlands, and lush marshes as you make your way from Hyannis to the Cape Cod Canal and by Sandwich. Included is a one-hour whistle stop along the canal at Pairpoint Glass. Passengers may choose to disembark and will have the opportunity to view live glass blowing and/or glass pressing while touring the facility. Pairpoint is America’s oldest crystal and glass company founded in 1837 and pieces which were made here are featured in over 30 museums across the US. Watch Master Glassblowers make pieces, tour the manufacturing floor and browse the newly renovated retail showroom. Following our excursion we will visit the Whydah Pirate Museum. The Whydah was a fully rigged galley ship that was built by the British. During one of its voyages in 1717, it was captured by the famed pirate, Samuel "Black Sam" Bellamy. During an infamous storm off the coast of Cape Cod the Whydah sank, laying its treasure just 500 feet off the shore for over 250 years. Now you can touch and see the world's only authenticated pirate treasure. A lobster dinner is included this evening. Alternate entrées will be available for any "landlubbers" not wishing to eat shellfish.
Today we leave Cape Cod behind as we head for home. Our arrival home is scheduled for early evening.CB
