Cape Cod SEAL WATCH ADVENTURE CRUISE
Our Seal Cruise takes you on a sightseeing adventure as you travel  from Orleans to Chatham Harbor to view the seal colony. Cruising along you will encounter islands, salt marshes, birds and the dunes   of the Cape Cod National Seashore. You will hear stories of pilgrims
and pirates, seals, sharks and shipwrecks. We also offer a special SEALS at SUNSET cruise.

BEACHCOMBER EXPEDITION and SEAL TOUR

beautiful barrier beach

Monomoy Island Excursions in Harwichport MA

Monomoy Island Excursions is a family owned and operated business in Harwich, Cape Cod, Massachussets. For over 10 years we’ve been taking people out to Monomoy, a barrier island and wildlife refuge off the coast of Chatham, MA, where thousands of seals have made their home.

seal

While seals are the main attraction on our cruise, there is a lot more to see! We visit Wychmere Harbor, in Harwich Port. This is one of the most scenic harbors on the Cape! We also stop in to Stage Harbor in Chatham, where you get a close up view of Stage Harbor Lighthouse, and can catch a glimpse of Chatham Lighthouse. Not to mention the combination of large yachts, small sailboats, and various fishing boats that fill each harbor. You get a real taste of the sea life on Nantucket Sound.
We run seal cruises several times a day, generally lasting 1 1/2 hours. While we see lots of harbor seals and gray seals, Monomoy is also home to hundreds of species of birds and other wildlife. There is a trained naturalist on board who narrates the tour and can answer questions about the wildlife as well as the history of the island and the historic  Monomoy Lighthouse.

Taylor Bray Farm in Yarmouthport MA

The Taylor Bray Farm is located in Yarmouthport and is open to the public!  In 1639, the farm was founded by Richard “of the rock” Taylor while the land was still part of the historic  Plymouth colony. It remained in the Taylor family for many years until 1896, when the Bray brothers, who both worked on the farm for the Taylors, purchased the property.  In 1987 the farm was purchased by the town.  It is now run by the collaborative efforts of several preservation groups.  Today, the smaller 22 acre property is a working farm.  It has donkeys, goats, cattle, sheep and chickens.  Visit with the farm’s sheep, cows, chickens and donkeys.
