Cape Cod Bay Outfitters offers whale watching charters for you to enjoy with your family or friends! Typical species of whales we see in Barnstable Harbor include Humpback, Minke, and Finbacks. If you’re interested in booking a whale watching charter here are some tips to make the most out of your cruise.
Bring the Right Gear
The best place on the boat for you to watch the whales is definitely on the outer decks. To make sure you’re as comfortable as can be while whale watching, it is recommended to dress with layers and wear waterproof gear. It’s important to be prepared for any type of weather that may come that day.
Talk to the Captain
Captain T Lange will tell you everything you need to know about Barnstable Harbor and the whales you see. He is the best source of information and will be happy to answer any questions you have! He’ll also be sure to give you his favorite whale watching tips so that you get the most out of your whale watching experience.
Have Your Camera Ready
It’s important to have your camera always ready because you never know when a whale is going to appear. Whether you have a fancy camera or are just using your phone you’ll be sure to get some great shots right from the boat. Make sure your phone and camera are fully charged so that you don’t miss any amazing shots due to a low battery. Taking videos is also a great idea as you’ll be sure to catch the whales in action and be able to look back at the amazing video whenever you’d like.
Take Time Away From the Lens
While its great to take as many photos and videos as you can it’s also great to take some time away from your lens. Taking time away from your lens enables you to just sit back and enjoy the scenery and whales without worrying about getting the perfect shot the whole cruise. Enjoying your time and living in the moment is highly encouraged.
One of the biggest things to remember on whale watch charters is to be patient! Whales are unpredictable and you might not know when they are going to appear, but they will. If you are patient and pay attention to the whales you will eventually be able to anticipate their next move.
