|DAY ONE: AUG 31|
|7:30 am||Good Morning! Coach boarding will begin at 7:00 am at the Kingston Shrine Club for a 7:30 am departure. With new friends and travelling companions, we will travel east towards the state of Massachusetts. Welcome to MASSACHUSETTS, the “Bay State” and the sandy shores of CAPE COD! Our Local Guide from the Cape will meet us at the RIVIERA BEACH RESORT and will assist with check-in. Unpack, relax, take a stroll on the private beach and bask in the breathtaking oceanfront views of Nantucket Sound. A welcome reception awaits us before we enjoy a welcome Dinner. Unpack and relax as we settle in to our home for the next four nights. As welcome treat, you will receive a complimentary Cape Cod print by a local artist just for coming along.|
|DAY TWO: SEPT 1|
|Enjoy your extended continental breakfast and get ready for an awesome day on the Cape! Our local guide will meet us at our resort for a full day of touring. We will travel historic ROUTE 6A, the Old King’s Highway, a scenic byway winding through centuries of Cape Cod history. It winds past hundreds of historic structures which characterize its early development. View the Eastham Windmill, a Cape Cod Lighthouse and visit the CAPE COD NATIONAL SEASHORE VISITOR’S CENTER. Sand dunes and the ocean surround you as you approach “Land’s End” – PROVINCETOWN. You are now at the extreme tip of Cape Cod. Formerly known as the “Province Lands” the pilgrims landed here first before they decided to settle across the Bay in Plymouth. Take some time to enjoy the wonderful variety of restaurants, shops, and galleries that make this artists/fishermen village so unique. This afternoon you may choose to board an excursion vessel for an amazing experience of WHALE WATCHING. You will travel into the natural habitat of a diverse marine environment including birds that migrate here from all over the Atlantic, and fish which use these shallow waters to feed. Try to spot Humpback, Minke, and Fin Whales going about their daily business. An onboard naturalist will
introduce you to everything you see and will answer any of your questions about the whales, birds, fish and lighthouses. OR you may choose to stay on dry land: As a land option admission is included on a DUNE TOUR excursion. You will ride along the shoreline of the protected lands of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Your guide will point out the “dune shacks” where famous artists and writers became inspired to create their art. To finish our wonderful day on the Cape, dinner is included this evening.
|DAY THREE: SEPT 2|
|An extended continental breakfast is included once again this morning at our resort. Again, our local guide will meet us at our resort and you will travel to the “south side” of the Cape to the seaside village of CHATHAM. Get ready for an unforgettable outdoor adventure – A SEAL WATCHING CRUISE. Get an up close and personal view of seals in their natural habitat as you cruise out of Stage Harbor or Ryder’s Cove into Chatham Harbor. This 1 ½ hour cruise has plenty of photo opportunities of the Harbor and Grey Seals swimming, sunning, and entertaining you. Next you will view the CHATHAM LIGHT, which has been a lifesaving beacon for sailors throughout the Cape’s history. Chatham’s location at the Cape’s “elbow” makes it very vulnerable to winter storms. Your guide will point out the CHATHAM BREAK and the dramatic changes to the shoreline that have occurred, thanks to Mother Nature. There will be free time for lunch on your own before we return to the resort for a free afternoon. Relax by the pool or on the private beach! Dinner is included once again this evening.|
|DAY FOUR: SEPT 3|
|An extended continental breakfast is included again this morning and then our local guide will meet us at the resort and we travel to America’s Hometown – PLYMOUTH. Home of the Pilgrim Fathers and one of the country’s first settlements, it is well known in the United States for its historical value. A picture stop will be made at the Forefather’s Monument, the largest, solid granite monument in the United States. She stands facing the harbor, welcoming those who come by water. A picture stop will also be made at the Plymouth Rock, the traditional site of disembarkation of the Pilgrims in 1620.
Board a LOBSTER TALES CRUISE to learn about the many creatures that live in Plymouth Harbor. Experience a “hands on” approach to see how lobsters are harvested from their natural environment. Roll up your sleeves to help haul in lobster traps. There will be free time for lunch and shopping on your own on the waterfront.
We will then travel to back HYANNIS and our guide will conduct a tour including the John F. Kennedy Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, Hyannisport and a view of St. Francis Xavier Church, the summer parish of the Kennedy Family. A Lobster dinner is included this evening at the Lobster Boat. Alternate entrées will be available for any “landlubbers” not wishing to eat shellfish.
|DAY FIVE: SEPT 4|
|We will share one more breakfast together before we check out of the hotel and before heading home. Depart Cape Cod with sand in your shoes, seashells in your pocket and many fond memories of your tour of “Olde Cape Cod” with thought of returning again soon!|
