In partnership with Chatham Bars Inn, Atlantic White Shark Conservancy is offering Great White Shark Expeditions, providing guests with the opportunity to shadow the team of scientists conducting research off the coast of Cape Cod. Visitors and locals alike can take a seat aboard the resort’s vessels with scientist Lindsay Graff from the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and watch the research team as they work to identify and potentially tag individual great white sharks.

Participants will become part of an elite group of adventurers as they witness the apex predators in their natural habitat, preying on the local grey seal, and get a first-hand understanding of AWSC’s efforts to conserve the species and ensure biologically diverse marine ecosystems. 

Expeditions run twice daily, Mondays and Thursdays from July 3 to October 19, and are weather permitting. As the only tours offered on the Cape that directly benefit white shark research, a large portion of the trip fee 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.  

Great White Shark Expeditions are $2500 (up to five passengers). To learn more and charter your Expedition contact the Chatham Bars Inn at 508-945-6871

Note - White shark sightings are not guaranteed. You do not need to be a guest at the Chatham Bars Inn to book an Expedition but we highly recommend staying there!

Lindsay has spent the last 4 years working in Fiji teaching shark studies college courses and focusing on bull shark research with Broadreach and Beqa Adventure Divers. Lindsay set up a baby bull shark tagging program in one of the river systems in Fiji, and and she loved spending her days diving with 40-60 bull sharks, grey reefs, tawny nurse, whitetip and blacktip sharks! Lindsay's past work has focused on white sharks in South Africa and lemon, tiger and nurse sharks in the Bahamas. Most recently, Lindsay worked with Dr. Greg Skomal assisting with his white shark research off the coast of Massachusetts.
