WHITE SHARK EXPEDITIONS

In partnership with Chatham Bars Inn, the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC) is offering White Shark Expeditions, providing guests with the opportunity to become part of an elite group of adventurers as they witness the apex predators in their natural habitat, preying on the local grey seals, and get a first-hand understanding of AWSC’s efforts to study the species to conserve Cape Cod's biologically diverse marine ecosystem. 

Accompanied by a member of Atlantic White Shark Conservancy's team, visitors and locals alike can take a seat aboard Chatham Bars Inn's vessel and participate in 'Citizens Science' as they add white shark sightings to the Sharktivity App, use a hydrophone to determine if a shark has been tagged, and record observations to be shared with the white shark research team.

Expeditions run twice daily, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays from July 3 to October 27, and are weather permitting. As the only tours offered on the Cape that directly benefit white shark research, a portion of the trip fee is tax deductible. Registration for the trip includes participants’ entrance at The Chatham Shark Center™.  

Great White Shark Expeditions are $2500 (up to five passengers). To learn more and book your expedition, call 1-800-527-4884

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!
