The Cape's many harbors are bustling with activity all throughout the year. Whether you are hopping on a ferry, chartering a fishing boat or boarding a whale watch vessel, you'll notice a whole other world carrying on around you.
Ships in and out of the harbor, the fleet returning with the daily catch, commuters returning home to the Vineyard after a day's work off-Cape.
Even if you aren't hopping on a boat, harbors are an interesting and inexpensive place to people watch or eat your lunch. Bring a sandwich or try a luncheon spot on the harbor.
If it's a little late in the day and you find yourself near a bayside harbor, get ready for one heck of a sunset!
Remember, whether it's morning, noon or night, always have your camera with Harbor Hopping you--you never know what you'll see on Cape Cod.
