Whale Watch Parking
Question: We are staying in Mashpee in mid-June 2016 and would like to take a whale watch excursion.
How long will it take to drive our car from Mashpee to whale watch launch points, and what car parking is available at the launch points?Dee's Reply:
Hi Robert - If you'll be staying in Mashpee, then I assume you'll take the Whale Watcher
cruise from Barnstable Harbor. That's the nearest one to Mashpee.
How long is the drive from Mashpee to the pier at Barnstable Harbor? I'd say roughly a half hour, give or take, depending on where in Mashpee you're staying, the route you take, and traffic conditions at the time you're on the road.
There's parking right there at the Harbor. If memory serves, the parking fee at Barnstable Harbor is $15.
Have you seen my Cape Cod Whale Watching page
? It includes all sorts of info about the various cruises, ports, parking, etc.
Have a great time on your whale watch. And if you have more questions about Cape Cod, please feel free to ask!
