WDC and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy host this exciting trip, and raise both money and awareness towards our mutual goal of ocean conservation.


**Tickets are open still for the rescedule of the Sept 7th which will take place on September 22nd. They will be a first-come, first-serve basis and no wait list will be open for it. Tickets can be purchased at our website.**

Keep an eye out around Spring of next year for Expedition 2020 tickets to open up! 

This all day trip is your opportunity to see some of the most exciting wildlife Cape Cod has to offer - humpback whales, great white sharks and seabirds galore.

We will be departing from Plymouth, MA on board the Tails of the Sea owned by Capt John Whale Watch (hotels and restaurants all within walking distance of the dock).

There are two trip dates to choose from:
Saturday, September 7th, 2019
Saturday, September 14th, 2019

Cost $165.00 (ticket price is inclusive of breakfast, lunch, snacks and an incredibly cool t-shirt!)

If you have questions, feel free to send an email to

We will spend a full day on the water, departing at 8:00 am and traveling with experts in the field of whales, sharks and pelagic birds. This trip has sold out every year - we hope you can join us this year. The image above shows you just how close we get to the great whites!


Out-of-town guests who choose to spend the night have several options for accommodations.

The Pilgrim Sands on Long Beach is a beachfront hotel. It is a short drive to the dock and downtown Plymouth.

The Best Western is about a mile walk to the dock and downtown Plymouth.

Hotel 1620 is less than a half a mile walk from the dock, and a stone's throw to several fine dining options.

Please check out the Destination Plymouth website for more hotel information as well as information about dining, shopping, and other attractions in the area. If you need more, please call WDC at 508.746.2522.
