Flexed like an arm jutting out into the Atlantic from Massachusetts, Cape Cod was formed by glaciers and changed through the ages by rising and falling seas. The Cape is cherished today as a place of extraordinary natural beauty, and the home of notable scientific institutions based at Woods Hole Village including the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Marine Biological Laboratory, and The Woods Hole Science Aquarium, the oldest marine aquarium in the country. Join us to learn about Cape Cod, its natural history, and advanced scientific research.


Highlights

• Encounter scientists and their work at the Marine Biological Laboratory, the oldest independent marine laboratory in the Americas, where 54 MBL-affiliated scientists have been awarded the Nobel Prize.
• At the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, the largest independent oceanographic research institution in the U.S., see ALVIN — the deep sea sub of “Titanic” fame.
• Explore the Woods Hole Aquarium, and take a whale watch study cruise to the Stellwagen Bank National marine sanctuary.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile daily on flat and uneven terrain outdoors, such as sandy beaches. Boarding a boat from a short ramp, stepping over a railing and down a few steps.
