Accessible Fun for All Ages - Whale Watching
We spent several days last week (before school starts today!) visting with the grandparents on Cape Cod. To celebrate their anniversary, we all went out on a whale watch from Provincetown. What a fun day for all! When I booked the tickets I told them my son would be using a wheelchair. When we arrived, they gave us priority boarding so we were able to get on the boat more easily (and pick an ideal viewing spot!) before the crowds embarked. It was a 3 hour trip and we spotted dozens of humpbacks and mincke whales. It really was a thrill for all. Our a ha moment - when the guide announced we may hit some swells, we realized that our son is the only person on board likely NOT to get sea sick. He always wears a scopolamine patch ( for motion sickness) to control his drooling. A highly recommend adventure for kids of all ages, 4 to 80! If you're planning a vacation on Cape Cod, check them out at Dolphin Fleet of Provincetown.
