A Day on Commercial St
March 30 from 1-3pm
One of the surest signs of the spring season? When the right whales return to Cape Cod Bay.
Because the tip of Provincetown is surrounded on three sides by water, and located three miles from the southern end of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, Cape Cod is one of the first great feeding locations whales encounter as they migrate north each spring.
Join the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Saturday, March 30 from 1 pm to 3 pm for a Whale Walk in Provincetown. The Sanctuary’s Education Director Amy Fleischer will guide you from Herring Cove to Race Point, two of the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod, for a chance to observe right whales from land. Ms. Fleischer will bring whale bones and other artifacts, and share stories and information about whale evolution, adaptations, and conservation.
Make an entire afternoon of it and head up to Provincetown early for lunch. Take your kids to Fanizzi’s Restaurant overlooking the Bay for comfort food and a kids’ menu, or hang at a pub with your friends at The Squealing Pig. For an on-the-go option, grab a sandwich, beverages, and snacks at 141 Natural Market.
And if you still have a little energy left after the walk, stop at the Provincetown Library to view their unique Town Art Collection, or their half-scale model of the fishing schooner Rose Dorothea, which was created as a grand tribute to the fishermen of Provincetown.
