Planning an Action-Packed Family Vacation with Captain John
When your family is vacationing in coastal Massachusetts, adventure awaits. Captain John Boats brings all of the action to you with a variety of family-friendly activities designed to make your vacation a memorable one. From whale watching to fishing, put these activities on your itinerary for your family vacation.
The waters off the coast of Massachusetts offer some of the best whale watching you will find anywhere. Captain John Boats offers multiple whale watching trips each day. Departing from Plymouth Harbor, our experience captains and naturalists will take you out to Cape Cod Bay and Stellwagen Bank, where you will get the chance to see humpback, finback, pilot, minke, and right whales up-close. We see whales on 99% of our trips, but if you don’t, you will receive a free pass for a future whale-watching excursion.
Head out for a half day or full day of fishing in deep ocean water on one of our deep-sea fishing trips. We know where to find the best flounder and pollock fishing spots, and our team can even clean and fillet your catches for you. This trip is not just for fishing enthusiasts. Your whole family will enjoy a day out on the water, even if they decide not to fish. We have a full-service galley and comfortable cabin space on board for anyone who would rather just take in the view instead of reeling in a fresh catch.
Take a day to explore the shopping and dining in Provincetown with our P-Town ferry service. P-Town is also home to some of the area’s best beaches, and the ferry gets you there much faster than driving. Plus, your family will enjoy the excitement of being out on the water for the trip.
Make Captain John Boats part of your family’s vacation for adventures you won’t soon forget. Whale watching, deep-sea fishing, and the ferry to P-Town are all available from Plymouth for your convenience. Book an adventure today by calling (508) 927-5575.
