Whale watching season starts mid-April, and the tours run through October. April through June might be the best time to take a trip as an unprecedented number of whales are usually spotted during these months. You will see a great number of whales later in the summer as well – these are the good months for pictures. Doing a whale watch with the Dolphin Fleet or Provincetown Whale Watch should become your Cape Cod tradition.  Both businesses are centrally located. You can find the Dolphin Fleet slips on the side of the MacMillan Pier, while the the Provincetown Whale Watch is located on the other side of the dock – the Fisherman’s Wharf. We strongly recommend The Dolphin Fleet tours for the best experience. Whale watch 4
