When you decide to take a trip to someplace amazing like Cape Cod, you immediately get excited about all of the fun things you can do while you are here. Here at Chatham Gables Inn, we have had the privilege of not only being able to take part in these activities ourselves but also impart our wisdom to our guests as well. One fantastic activity that we love suggesting to our guests is to go on a Monomoy Island Ferry ride. They have been known throughout the Cape to take their guests on wonderful tours. This year they are celebrating 25 years and they are kicking off their next 25 years with two new tours that should be on the top of your list of activities when you come to Cape Cod.
Before you get aboard a Monomoy Island Ferry excursion, you should know a bit about them. They have a wonderful boat, the Rip Ryder IV which is a 32-foot twin engine boat that can easily carry a group of 20 people. Your captain will be Keith Lincoln and he, along with the boat, have all passed numerous safety inspections each year to make sure that everything is in working order.
The first of the new Monomoy Island Ferry tours we want to tell you about is their sport fishing trip. This is a great trip for those who enjoy the open waters and not only seeing fish but trying your hand in catching one. You can either fish off the shores or on the boat, both provide ample opportunities for catching fish. If you are wanting to try your hand at some big fish, then consider their shark or blue fin tuna trips. Each of these types of fish can get huge, as well as be very delicious. The staff on the boat will help you reel in your catch. Wanting to have a great moment with your children? Take them fishing! These Monomoy Island Ferry fishing trips are wonderful for children as well. The rates for the Monomoy Island Ferry fishing trips start at $550 for 4 hours, $675 for 6 hours, $850 for 8 hours and $1,100 for the shark or Blue Fin tuna trips. Just be sure to know that there is a 6 person max on the boat.
The other Monomoy Island Ferry new tour we want to tell you about is their whale watching tour. Now, there is a handful of companies around the Cape Cod shores that all can take you whale watching. However, one way that Monomoy Island Ferry is set apart from them is that they offer private whale watching tours. Imagine instead of having to share you whale watching experience with a dozen or more of your favorite strangers, you can share that experience with just your family. Now that is something to remember forever. The Monomoy Island Ferry whale watching tour takes place on their 26-foot Sport Fishing boat and can hold up to 6 people and their captain will take you all around the Cape Cod shores for 4 hours in search of our native whales. Watch these beautiful creatures in their native habitat, watch them eat and swim with their pods. While you are out there, you might even have a glimpse of other amazing sea life as well.
It’s easy to see why so many people love coming to not only Cape Cod but also Chatham when you have the Monomoy Island Ferry in your harbors. Having fun attractions like this keep our visitors entertained during their entire stay here. When people do choose to come to Cape Cod, they enjoy staying with us at Chatham Gables Inn. Our guests enjoy our iconic Cape Cod style not only while they are here but enjoy taking a piece of it back with them when they visit our gift shop.
