White Shark Ecotourism At Chatham Bars Inn

In partnership with the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, Chatham Bars Inn is hosting not one but two once-in-a-lifetime shark experiences this summer!


On both our Receiver Excursion and our Great White Shark Expedition, you’ll team up with scientists from the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy as they gather research about great whites in their natural habitat. You might even get up close and personal with a great white yourself!


Space is limited and reservations are required. To book, please contact our concierge at 1.800.527.4884.

Receiver Excursions at Chatham Bars Inn Resort & Spa


Program runs July 3rd through August 31st

Spend an hour cruising the beautiful Chatham Harbor. Head out to the lighthouse and explore the sandbars where grey seals haul out, looking for evidence of a predation.


Guests will have the opportunity to bring up a shark receiver and analyze the data to find out if any tagged white sharks have passed through. The tour will be led by Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, and a portion of the proceeds from this excursion will be donated to the Conservancy to help fund ongoing white shark research and education programs.


Excursions depart Monday and Wednesday mornings at 9am from the Chatham Bars Inn pier. Tickets are $50 per person.


To book, please contact our concierge at 1.800.527.4884.


Great White Shark Expeditions at Chatham Bars Inn Resort & Spa


Program runs July 3rd through October 19th

Our Great White Shark Expeditions provide guests the opportunity to shadow Atlantic White Shark Conservancy scientists conducting research off the coast of Cape Cod.


Visitors and locals alike can take a seat aboard the resort’s vessel with scientist Lindsay Graff and watch the research team as they work to identify and potentially tag individual great white sharks.


Expeditions run twice daily, Mondays and Thursdays, and are weather permitting.


The boat is $2,500 and will accommodate up to 5 guests. As the only tour offered on the Cape whose donations directly benefit white shark research, education and conservation efforts, a portion of the trip is tax deductible.


Registration for the trip includes participants’ entrance at The Chatham Shark Center™ and an aerial photo by Ocean Aerials of your trip.


To book, please contact our concierge at 1.800.527.4884.


About the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy


We are huge fans of the work that the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy does. Their mission is simple: to support scientific research, improve public safety, educate the community and to inspire conservation of Atlantic white sharks. They’re out on the water every day, working toward making that mission a reality.


At Chatham Bars Inn, we are proud to support the AWSC - most recently, with a $27,000 donation! If you can reserve a spot on our Receiver Excursion or our Great White Shark Expedition, we highly encourage you to do so - it’s for a great cause, and there’s nothing else like it on the Cape.
