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.

Experts from WDC and AWSC will be your onboard guides who will show you whales and sharks while also explaining their biology, behavior, and conservation.

All of the proceeds from these all- day trips go toward WDC and AWSC’s mutual goal of ocean conservation.


We will depart at 8 AM from Plymouth, MA on board the Tails of the Sea owned by Capt John Boats.  To allow for more spacing between guests and for a comfortable experience for all, we are only welcoming 200 passengers on each trip even though the vessel has a capacity of 290 passengers.

We will be following all Massachusetts state guidelines related to COVID-19 for this trip and request you review those guidelines here before purchasing your ticket.

There are three trip dates to choose from:
Saturday, August 20th, 2022 departing at 8 AM

Saturday, August 27th, 2021 departing at 8 AM

Saturday, September 17th, 2021 departing at 8 AM

Tickets are $195 per person (plus processing fees) and include breakfast, lunch, snacks and an incredibly cool Expedition: White Sharks and Whales shirt! Please note that due to COVID-19 guidelines pertaining to food handling, we will not be able to accommodate all dietary needs with prepared meals. Guests are welcome to bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks onboard.

In addition to being an incredible experience on the water, this trip directly supports research and conservation of white sharks and whales. The AWSC and WDC are 501c3 non profit organizations, and this trip furthers our conservation efforts and furthering our understanding of white sharks and whales.
