Cape Cod Dune Tours

Provincetown, on the very tip of Cape Cod, boasts a terrific National Seashore – a beach so big you can drive on it. In fact, a drive here is so much fun, the folks at Art’s Dune Tours have been doing it since 1946.

You’ll see the incredible landscape of the sand dunes during a one hour tour, while a knowledgeable guide points out such fascinating areas as the 'dune shacks' (where famous artists like Eugene O’Neill and Harry Kemp stayed while creating their famed art) and Peaked Hill Life Saving Station.

Tours are one hour long and depart daily from 10 AM to 3:45 PM. Special sunset tours are two hours and start at approximately 5:45 PM. Cars hold 6-8 passengers. Rates: Adults: $32, Children (6 to 11 years old): $20. Sunset tour marginally higher.

For those into a trip that’s longer and more off the beaten path, Art’s offers Land 'N Lakes Excursions when the weather gets nice – a dune tour combined with raft excursion and lunch on the raft, which runs 3.5-4 hours total. Ages 6 and under not invited to this party, however. Call 1-800-894-1951 or reserve online.
