Whale Watch: We go through Nauset Inlet onto the Atlantic Ocean to a depth of about 100' where the whales enjoy the cool water. With or without a whale sighting, it is a rare treat to be out on the ocean enjoying the breeze and taking in the sights along the National Seashore - beautiful to see from the water!. A shark sighting is not uncommon.
