Cape Cod Maritime Days Coming In May

Cape Cod Maritime Days are the kickoff to a fun summer season, and a great time for guests to visit.

Our area has a rich history in seafaring and fishing and this annual event pays homage to that. Visitors will find lots of fun activities around Eastham and throughout the Cape, including a festival, guided kayak trips, lighthouse and walking tours, art exhibits and lectures on maritime lore. Here are a few of the highlights.Photo of Chatham Lighthouse -- white lighthouse next to smaller white house.
