A Look at Deep Sea Fishing

fishing tour plymouthDeep sea fishing is like regular fishing, but this time, you’re on a boat farther away from shore, waiting for fish swimming thirty or so meters underwater surface to bite the bait. The exciting part is that you’ll have a chance to catch fish that rarely, if ever, swim closer to the shore. That means that this is a good chance to impress family and friends, not just with the size of your catch, but the opportunity to throw your catch on the stove and dinner table, too. The Cape Cod area is rife with deep sea fishing opportunities, but your best bet is to join a fishing trip. The captain and crew will know where to find the fish so you can have a better shot at reeling some in. Then all you have to do is be patient, get those triceps ready for reeling, and see what you catch!

Let us at Captain John Whale Watching and Fishing Tours treat you to a day of deep sea fishing! Novices and anglers alike are sure to enjoy our excursion, which includes fishing materials, bait, and experienced crew.

Having a Whale of a Time: Tips for Whale Watching

So you’ve set aside a day for an exciting whale watching adventure in Cape Cod bay-- great! Now it’s time to prepare. Fortunately, the crew and staff will do the hard work for you, but it’s smart to bring essentials so you can focus on the purpose of your trip: whale watching.

Getting Comfortable

Wear comfortable non-slip shoes and bring a light jacket (it’s gets colder out at sea), sunblock, snacks, seasickness medication if you’re prone to it, your favorite snacks, and your camera. Binoculars will also help you catch sight of whales if they’re being shy. The great thing about whale watching is that you don’t need extensive preparation or knowledge to make the most of you whale watching adventure in Cape Cod.

Bring a Good Attitude

Chances are, you’ll catch sight of a whale on your trip. But don’t expect to encounter friendly and acrobatic whales right away; in fact, sometimes it takes some navigation and patience before whales appear. Bring an upbeat, curious attitude so you can learn from the crew, and keep your eyes peeled for whales. There’s a lot to see and learn on whale watching adventures, so make the most of it with a smile and open mind.

A good attitude includes being considerate, too, and not just to the crew, but to the wildlife as well. Be courteous and polite to fellow whale-watchers, and never throw trash into the water. We’re lucky to have these awesome sea creatures near Cape Cod, so we want to respect their living habits by keeping the waters clean.

Don’t Miss Out

If you spend the entire excursion glued behind your camera, you’re missing out. Sure, a shot of a whale leaping out of the water is spectacular-- but if you see it with your own eyes, without a lens, the memory will be clearer and sharper than any photograph. So, while photography is encouraged, take a few moments to sit back and let your eyes, not your finger, do the watching.

Our crew at Captain John Whale Watching and Fishing Tours are ready to show you the beauty of nature on our excursions around Cape Cod. To buy your tickets and learn more about us, visit our website or call us at (508) 746-2643. We hope to see to you soon!



Getting Ready for Your First Deep Sea Fishing Trip

Your first deep sea fishing trip can be a marvelously exciting experience, but you may not know exactly what to expect. Watch this video clip if you would like some assistance in getting ready for your first deep sea fishing trip.

In order to enjoy your first trip as much as you can, it is important to stay comfortable. It is wise to dress in several layers so that you are not left wishing you were warmer. Be sure to bring sunscreen as well as plenty of bait, and practice your technique frequently before the big day arrives.

At Captain John Whale Watching and Fishing Tours, we are happy to offer deep sea fishing and whale watching tours on our ferry in Plymouth. Please feel free to call (508) 927-5575 or visit our website if you would like more information about our fishing charters today.



Tips for Preventing Seasickness

fishing tour plymouthIf you have trouble finding your sea legs but want to join a whale watching tour or sea fishing adventure in Plymouth, you can take steps to prevent the misery that is seasickness. Your first line of defense starts with prevention in the form of anti-motion sickness medications and patches, and in the practice of being completely sober and not having a hangover. It’s also good choice to opt for excursions on bigger boats. The bigger the boat, the better it withstands ocean currents. Once on the boat, set your sights for the horizon and enjoy the breeze and beauty of the open ocean. Just relax! The more relaxed and distracted you are, the less you’ll feel the motion of the boat. If you do feel a bit queasy, move toward the open air and snack on some bland foods. This sounds counterintuitive, but many swear by the snack treatment. And most importantly, tell yourself firmly that you will not be seasick-- mind over matter, as the saying goes, will work in your favor, since the placebo effect is particularly strong when it comes to seasickness.

When you’re whale watching on the beautiful blue waters of Cape Cod, you’ll hardly realize you’re on a boat! Captain John Whale Watching and Fishing Tour offers informative yet exciting excursions on Cape Cod. To buy your tickets and learn more about us, visit our website or call us at (508) 746-2643. You’ll have a whale of a time with us!
