If you’ve only ever walked along the beach and have never really seen the majesty of our sand dunes, a dune tour is for you! Art’s Dune Tours, based in Provincetown, offer several options, all providing interesting sights—and insights.
The tours are given in Suburbans that hold six to eight riders, and are enclosed and air-conditioned for a comfortable ride. You can select the best tour for you based on your interest: whether you want to learn the history of the lake, want to do a little fishing or sailing, are an amateur photographer looking to take to get great shots, or just want a little fun. Daily trips start at 10:00 a.m., with the last one (a sunset tour), leaving at 5:30 p.m. Here’s a sampling of what they offer.
Land ‘N Lake tour. An early morning excursion that covers the history, ecology and geology of the lake. Includes a kayaking excursion on Old East Harbor Lake and lunch.
3 ½-4 hours
Land ‘N Sea tour. A dune tour that incorporates an ocean fishing trip and a sunset dinner, which could just be the fish you caught!
2 hours/land and 3-4 hours/sea
Other tours include Art with Art’s, Saturday Night Sunset Special Sunrise, Amateur Photography Tour and Land ‘N Sail.

Art’s Dune Tours is a family venture, and has been running tours since 1946, so they run a well-oiled business and great to deal with. Provincetown is a nice 30-minute drive from the Inn, and a fun town to poke around in too.
Stay with us at the inn and we’ll be happy to help you arrange your tour!
