Chatham Bars Inn (map)

Spend an hour crusing 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

Great White Shark Expeditions

Great White Shark Expeditions

In partnership with Chatham Bars Inn, Atlantic White Shark Conservancy are offering Great White Shark Expeditions, providing guests with the opportunity to shadow the team of scientists conducting research off the coast of Cape Cod. Visitors and locals alike can take a seat aboard the resort’s vessels with scientist Lindsay Graff from the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and watch the research team as they work to identify and potentially tag individual great white sharks.

Participants will become part of an elite group of adventurers as they witness the apex predators in their natural habitat, preying on the local grey seal, and get a first-hand understanding of AWSC’s efforts to conserve the species and ensure biologically diverse marine ecosystems. 

Expeditions run twice daily, Mondays and Thursdays from July 3 to October 19, and are weather permitting. As the only tours offered on the Cape whose donations directly benefit white shark research, education and conservation efforts, a portion of the trip is tax deductible. Registration for the trip includes participants’ entrance at The Chatham Shark Center™ and an aerial photo by Ocean Aerials of your trip.  

Great White Shark Expeditions are $2500 (up to five passengers). To learn more and charter your Expedition contact the Chatham Bars Inn at 508-945-6871

Note - White shark sightings are not guaranteed. You do not need to be a guest at the Chatham Bars Inn to book an Expedition but we highly recommend staying there!
