Spend an hour cruising the beautiful Chatham Harbor. Head out to the lighthouse and explore the sandbars where grey seals haul out, looking for evidence of a predation. Guests will have the opportunity to bring up a shark receiver and analyze the data to find out if any tagged white sharks have passed through.
The tour will be led by Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, and a portion of the proceeds from this excursion will be donated to the Conservancy to help fund ongoing white shark research and education programs.
Excursions depart Monday and Wednesday mornings @ 9 am at the Chatham Bars Inn dock. Tickets are $50. Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-527-4884
Visitors and locals alike can take a seat aboard the resort’s vessels with Michelle Wcisel from the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and watch the research team as they work to identify and potentially tag individual great white sharks.
Expeditions run twice daily, Mondays and Thursdays from July 2 to October 18, weather permitting. These are the only shark tours offered on the Cape that directly benefit white shark research, education and conservation efforts, a portion of the trip is tax deductible.
Great White Shark Expeditions are $2500 (up to five passengers) and include tickets to our Chatham Shark Center. To learn more and charter your Expedition contact the Chatham Bars Inn at 508-945-6871
