Cape Cod’s Piping Plover Conundrum
Posted by Kinlin Grover | Monday, July 30, 2018
When researching Cape Cod, you might come across people talking about the area's piping plover population. Unless you're a bird expert, however, there's a good chance you've never heard of species, nor would you realize why they are so well-known on the Cape. The piping plover, or Charadrius melodus, is a small shorebird with orange legs, brown and white feathers, and black bands on its forehead and chest. The bird's coloring means it blends in with the sand and, therefore, can be difficult to spot. Their small size – they're only 6-7.5 inches long and 1.5-2.5 ounces – also makes them hard to see.
Piping plovers arrive on Cape Cod every March or April, build a nest and give birth, and stick around into September, raising their young, before heading south for the winter. If you’re here in the spring or summer, you’ll have a chance to see them up close, as long as you know where to look. Keep in mind that there is more to this situation than a bird that happens to spend its summers on Cape Cod. Not everyone on Cape Cod is fond of these shorebirds, and there is some controversy regarding the piping plover and the local efforts to resurrect its population.
Piping Plover Numbers on Cape Cod
Overall, the piping plover is a near threatened species. This distinction means that while numbers aren't high, the birds aren't on the verge of extinction. It is estimated that 6,510 of these birds are currently in existence throughout North America. The problem is that the Atlantic coast population of the bird is far smaller, as only 1,800 pairs remain. In addition, only 680 breeding pairs make their way to Massachusetts annually. Back in 1986, 140 pairs returned to Massachusetts, so it's easy to see how the species has rebounded over the last three decades, but conservationists aren’t satisfied, as the birds remain protected under the Endangered Species Act. The exact number of piping plovers on Cape Cod is unknown, but estimates suggest 36 pairs appeared at the Cape Cod National Seashore in 2016. These numbers mean there is more work to be done if the piping plover is going to make a full recovery, which is why Cape Cod has introduced some restrictions during nesting season on beaches throughout the area.
Piping Plover Nesting Restrictions
The restrictions on piping plover nesting areas are actually quite relaxed, all things considered. The gist is that you have to keep your distance from their nests because they are so delicate. On beaches where the birds are nesting, there will be a temporary fence built around the upper part of the beach to protect the eggs and the plover chicks. Just keep your distance from these areas, and you can go about your business on the beach without being bothered. If the birds happen to nest on a beach where off-road vehicles are allowed, the entire beach is closed to these vehicles for a few months while the chicks grow strong enough to fend for themselves. These beach closures aren’t unique to Cape Cod, as they occur throughout Massachusetts as a method of keeping the nests and eggs safe from vehicle traffic.
The key here is that the chicks are virtually helpless for the first few months of their lives. And since they blend in with the sand, you’d have very little chance of seeing a nest when approaching it in a vehicle. These restrictions by the wildlife service are one of the reasons why the bird’s population has recovered, so those who are working to save the species want to see them remain in place indefinitely.
The Controversy on Cape Cod
The protectionism of the piping plover isn’t without its controversy, as there are those who believe closing entire stretches of beach every year is problematic, especially during the busy season. Most years, for example, a section of Nauset Beach is shut down for months at a time, leaving locals and visitors alike extremely frustrated. If you own a business or property near a piping plover nesting area, you won’t be happy about their presence because it can hurt your bottom line. After all, if locals and visitors can’t access the nearby beach, and your business is beach-centric, you could experience financial problems as a result. Likewise, if you’re a local resident who has paid for a season’s over-sand permit, and now you can’t take your vehicle to your favorite spot, you might be a little upset. Beach closures are rare issues that only arise periodically, however, and many believe the small inconvenience is worth it when saving such a sensitive species.
Another issue is that the piping plover population seems to have plateaued in recent years, despite efforts to increase their numbers even further. It is believed this plateau is the result of their natural predators keeping their amounts in check, rather than human-caused interference, so those who aren’t fond of the beach restrictions believe that people aren’t, in fact, the problem. As with any argument, the truth is probably somewhere in the middle, but for now, we’ll continue to see these nests protected in an attempt to improve the piping plover’s population.
Preserving the Piping Plover for the Future
The hope is that the efforts put forth will help the piping plover population on Cape Cod to continue to grow so that future generations can enjoy these birds. After all, we’re the ones vacationing on their natural habitat, so the least we can do is respect their space when raising their young. If you want to do your part, start by obeying all signs and fences that are posted on the beaches to protect the wildlife. You should also avoid approaching the birds or their nests at any time. There will usually be restrictions on dogs on beaches with a piping plover population, but if pets are permitted, keep them on a leash.
The beach's ecosystem is remarkably delicate and losing even a small part of it can lead to greater problems down the line. Do your part to protect the piping plover so that those seeking Cape Cod vacation rentals in the future will also have a chance to enjoy them.
Cape Cod Fishing Charters
Posted by Kinlin Grover | Monday, July 23, 2018
When spending time on Cape Cod, it would be downright criminal if you don't spend at least one day on the ocean. After all, the Cape is nearly surrounded by the Atlantic and, as a result, has some of the best fishing on the entire East Coast. Another aspect of fishing on Cape Cod is its diversity, as there are rivers, lakes, and ponds where you can catch smaller fish, or you can head out on a fishing charter in search of a larger species. Even on the ocean, there are various locations, as you can head into Cape Cod Bay, Nantucket Sound, or the deep Atlantic Ocean. For the sake of this post, we're going to look at ocean fishing charters on Cape Cod, as there are plenty of options depending on where your vacation rental is located and what type of fish you want to catch.
After checking into your vacation rental, have a look at the nearby Cape Cod fishing charter companies to see if you can get out there and catch your next meal yourself.
Fishing in Provincetown
In Provincetown, Ginny G is one of the top Cape Cod charter fishing companies around. Captain Dave Gibson has been fishing in the waters off Provincetown for over 35 years and brings a wealth of experience if you're looking to catch codfish, mackerel, tuna, bluefish, or striped bass. Since the waters in Provincetown Harbor are so deep, you won't have to travel far to reach the best fishing areas and can spend more time fishing, rather than boating.
Ocean Fishing Excursions in Orleans
Dragonfly Sportfishing operates a 23-foot custom SeaCraft vessel out of Orleans, with the boat leaving from a dock on River Road. The craft then heads out into Little Pleasant Bay before venturing into the Atlantic in search of striped bass, bluefish, bluefin tuna, and black sea bass. Whale watching excursions and family fishing trips are also available through this company, and the boat is captained by Mike Bosley. The company also has launch sites in South Yarmouth and Dennis, should you be staying in those areas.
Chatham Fishing Charters
Capeshores Charters leaves from Chatham's Municipal Fish Pier and heads to an area that offers some of the best cod and striped bass fishing in the northeastern United States. The vessel, which is a 24-foot lobster boat, travels north off the coast of Nauset or Coast Guard beach, or to Nantucket Shoals in the south, which are both historically fertile fishing grounds. Other fish common in the area include bluefin tuna and bluefish, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to make a catch.
Harwich Charter Fishing
Cape Cod Fishing Charters is captained by Art Brosnan and can take groups of up to six people from Saquatucket Harbor in Harwichport to Nantucket Sound and other coastal waters. The boat's four to eight-hour charters search for bluefish, fluke, sea bass, porgy, striped bass, and squid, while ten-hour trips into deeper water for bluefin tuna fishing are also available. The vessel, the Capt'n & Tonaire, is 35 feet long and one of the fastest on the Cape, so you'll spend more time fishing and less time reaching your destination.
Yarmouth Fishing Excursions
Shark Shark Tuna departs from Skippy's Pier 1 on Parker's River in Yarmouth and heads directly into Nantucket Sound. From there, you can choose to fish the sound, or head north to the Stellwagen Bank, Cape Cod Bay or anywhere else in the area. The company usually targets bluefin tuna, sea bass, striped bass, porgy, white marlin, yellowfin tuna, and sharks, so you'll have an excellent selection when choosing what to fish for on your day on the ocean.
Hyannis Fishing Charter Boats
The Helen H fishing fleet in Hyannis is one of the largest charter companies on Cape Cod, as the company operates five boats between 30 and 100 feet in length. The largest vessel, the Helen H, can handle multi-day trips, as it has sleeping quarters built right in. There is also a sundeck for those who don't want to fish, but still want to experience life on the ship. Codfish, tuna, fluke, sea bass, haddock, and scup are among the fish you can catch on your trip, or you can head out on a whale watching excursion, as well.
Fishing Charters in Barnstable
Cape Cod Family Fishing Charters in Barnstable specializes in family-friendly fishing trips so that you can take your kids without any worry. The company heads out into Cape Cod Bay in search of striped bass, bluefish, and tuna and has two boats: The Escape and the Elizabeth B. All fish that you catch will be cleaned and prepared for you to take back to your vacation rental at the end of your tour.
Catch Fish in Falmouth
One of the best-known fishing companies in Falmouth is through Bluefin Charters, which operates a 28-foot lobster boat and can take groups of up to six passengers, although larger groups can be accommodated with a second boat. The company offers bluefish, bonito, albacore, and big striped bass fishing close to shore, or fluke, black sea bass and porgy fishing in the deep sea. Shark fishing is also available on longer trips south of Martha's Vineyard.
Your Cape Cod Fishing Charters
As you can see, there are plenty of Cape Cod fishing charters available, depending on what you want to fish for and where you want to go. Rates vary, as well, so have a look around to find a sport fishing option that works for you.
Remember that all of your fishing gear is provided with every fishing charter, so you won’t have to worry about packing it from home. Read the website of the fishing charter company that you choose to see what you’ll need to bring on your journey, as most do not provide food or drink unless you make prior arrangements with the captain.
There is usually a place onboard to store any meals that you bring, and many vessels have cooking facilities. It’s also important to pack extra clothes to prepare for changing weather, as the ocean can be unpredictable at times. No fishing license is required in Massachusetts as long as you don’t sell any fish.
Make the most of your Cape Cod vacation this summer by getting out there and experiencing some of the country’s best fishing. If you’ve never gone deep sea fishing before, this is unquestionably the place to try it for the first time.

The Brewster Brew Run
Posted by Kinlin Grover | Monday, July 16, 2018
On Saturday, August 11, 2018, the 40th annual Brewster Brew Run will take place. This charity event is 5.2 miles long and carries a $20 entry fee with proceeds going to Brewster Rescue and Safety. Generally speaking, the run brings in $20,000 annually for a worthy cause, while also allowing you to get out there and enjoy yourself.
If you’re visiting Cape Cod this summer, sign yourself up for the Brewster Brew Run because not only does it give you something to strive for on your vacation, but you’ll also meet some locals and have a great time at the party after.
That is because the run is called the Brew Run for a reason. At the end of the race, you’re given a free beer to enjoy while you reminisce about your run and begin looking forward to next year’s edition. And, of course, you’re free to buy a few more beers after your free one because you’ll have earned it after your run on Cape Cod.
About the Run
This year's race will start at 4 PM and is 5.2 miles in length. There are five water stations along the way, and parking is available at both Townhall and Eddy Elementary School. The parking lots are about half a mile east of the Woodshed Bar, but there is a free shuttle available to take you to and from the starting line.
Digital timers are used at all checkpoints and the finish line, and all timing is done professionally. This timing is notable for serious runners who are looking to beat a personal best. There are restrooms along the course, and strollers are not permitted.
Keep in mind that the race is known as much for the prizes given out afterwards as the run itself. Since this is a charity event for the Brewster Rescue Squad, numerous local businesses donate awards to be handed to racers, so make sure you stick around after completing the run to see if you've won something.
The race starts and finishes in the same area: by the Woodshed Bar on Route 6A. After beginning the race on Route 6A, runners will turn onto Lower Road, where they will pass the Cobb House Museum and the Brewster Cemetery. Lower Road is also where you'll find checkpoint number one.
Following a lengthy stretch on Lower Road, the course takes a turn south on Paine's Creek Road, home of checkpoint number two, before heading east on Stony Brook Road. This stretch of the route passes Smith Pond before making another turn onto Tubman Road. Tubman Road is where you'll come across checkpoint numbers three and four, the latter of which is where the road meets Long Pond Road, which is close to the parking lot for the Cape Cod Rail Trail.
Finally, the route heads on Long Pond Road until it meets Harwich Road, which you'll follow to the finish line on Route 6A. As was mentioned previously, the race as a whole is 5.2 miles long, with the fastest runners completing the course in under 28 minutes while running at a pace of 5:15 per mile. The majority of runners can finish the road race in under an hour, so you'll likely have a cold beer in your hand by 5 PM if you choose to participate this year.
Benefits to Brewster Rescue and Safety
Proceeds raised through entry fees and other donations go to Brewster Rescue and Safety. The money is then used to train firefighters, paramedics, and other life-saving individuals. New equipment is also purchased with the proceeds raised by this and other events, ensuring members of Brewster Fire and Rescue are prepared to handle any issues that come their way. In fact, a brand new, state-of-the-art fire station officially opened on June 23, 2018, and the department received a new ambulance in July 2018, as well.
Brewster didn't have a fire department until 1926, and its first fire station wasn't built until 1941. Before the construction of the fire hall, the town's fire truck was stored in firefighter Edward Dillingham's garage. As you can see, the department has come a long way over the years, and much of this development is due to the efforts put in by local citizens raising money for this excellent cause.
Your Cape Cod Vacation
You’ll find plenty of ways to spend your time outdoors during your Cape Cod vacation, with the Brewster Brew Run bring one of the more rewarding activities available. While it is recommended that you’re an active person in good running condition if you choose to participate in the race, you don’t have to be an experienced half marathon runner or have any marathon training whatsoever to give it a try.
If you plan to be on Cape Cod during the second weekend in August, head over to Brewster to give the annual Brew Run a try or, at the very least, stop by for a beer after the race and show your support for a great cause.

The Cape Cod Golf Scene
Posted by Kinlin Grover | Monday, July 9, 2018
Golfing on Cape Cod
If you’re planning to hit the links during your Cape Cod vacation, you should know a little bit about why the region is such a golf hotbed. It was truly a perfect storm that created the landscape, both physical and social, that led to the development of so many golf courses throughout the Cape.
You see, without the rolling hills found all over Cape Cod, the terrain might be a bit boring and, therefore, the courses wouldn’t be at the same level. The rolling hills were formed during the last ice age, about 15,000 years ago, when the glaciers retreated. The process is similar to how the kettle ponds were created all over the Cape, as it was the same geological process.
From a social point of view, it is Cape Cod’s proximity to Boston and its emerging golf scene during the Victorian era that led to so many golf courses being built. Basically, people in Boston loved to golf at that time, and the Cape was, and remains, a popular vacation destination for people from Boston, so it made sense to construct the courses.
The end result is that Cape Cod has one of the country’s best golf scenes, with 27 public and 15 private facilities, which is a considerable amount for such a small area. For our purposes, we’ll look at some of the top public golf courses on Cape Cod that you can tee off from within a short distance of your vacation rental.
Cranberry Valley Golf Course
Cranberry Valley Golf Course is a par 72 course that is set in a heavily wooded area in Harwich. You can play the course at a variety of different lengths, making it possible for less skilled players to enjoy a round. The course is 18 holes with a few par-fives sprinkled in, providing variety, and is also a very scenic course thanks to the surrounding forest.
Rates vary at Cranberry Valley, depending on the month and time of day you choose to play. You can find lower prices if you play in the afternoon or during the week. There is an on-site driving range at the course, as well.
Blue Rock Golf Course
If you're more of a beginner, Blue Rock Golf Course in South Yarmouth might be for you because it is a par-three course with holes ranging between 103 and 255 yards in length. According to Golf Magazine, the course is one of the top 10 par-three courses in the world, thanks to its wooded setting and water holes. In fact, the course's ninth hole, which is 169 yards long over water, has been called one of the top 18 holes on Cape Cod.
There are a variety of green fee rates found at Blue Rock, with pre or post season rounds generally being cheaper. You can find deals during the high season if you golf in the evening, and the course has a deal where your lunch is $10 with the purchase of a green fee.
Highland Golf Links
In Truro, the Highland Golf Links are well worth checking out. This is the oldest course on Cape Cod, dating back to 1892, and sits atop a bluff that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. The course is also next to Cape Cod Light, providing spectacular views. As a traditional links course, Highland Golf has deep rough and open fairways, creating a challenging, yet scenic, round. The course is only nine holes, but you can play it twice at a discounted rate to make up 18.
The course charges the same rate no matter the season or time of day, although junior players can receive a discounted price. Club rentals are available at the course at the cost of $20 for 18 holes.
The Cape Club
Those who really love golf must play a round at The Cape Club in Falmouth, as it has been rated as one of the top public courses in New England. The Cape Club is a championship-level course that has been completely renovated in recent years, creating better views, wider fairways, and making it into an altogether more playable course. In the coming years, a pool and spa will be added to the resort, turning it into a full-day venue for the entire family.
The pricing for a round at The Cape Club is dynamic, so it changes continually based on availability. Generally, prices will be lowest after 4 PM, but you can find lower rates during the day if you book early or wait until the last minute to fill a cancellation.
Cape Cod Country Club
Despite its name, Cape Cod Country Club is a public course. In fact, it's one of the best courses on Cape Cod and was called one of the best places in the country to play by Golf Digest magazine. This championship-level course has a unique layout that creates a fun, yet challenging round, as it sits along Coonamessett Pond but meanders into wooded areas, as well. Overall, the course is 6,404 yards in length and is a par 71, but beginners can start from the white tees to make it more playable for them.
If you're able to golf at Cape Cod Country Club during the week, you can assure yourself of finding the lowest rates. In addition, after 4 PM you can play unlimited rounds until close for a low price, even on weekends.
As you can see, the golf scene on Cape Cod is diverse, as you’ll find courses of all lengths and difficulty levels. Even if you don’t plan to bring your clubs to your Cape Cod vacation rental, you’ll be able to rent a set at most of these courses.
Take the time to learn about the golf courses on Cape Cod before arriving on your vacation to ensure you’re aware of the best clubs to match your skill level. With so many choices available, Cape Cod makes the perfect destination for a golf vacation this summer.

The 2018 Pan-Mass Challenge
Posted by Kinlin Grover | Thursday, July 5, 2018
Although it isn't an event exclusive to Cape Cod, the Pan-Mass Challenge, or PMC, is well-known in the area and is something you might want to involve yourself in if you're here in early August. The 2018 edition of this bike-a-thon, marking its 39th consecutive year, will take place on August 4 and 5 and will attract over 6,200 cyclists from all over the world to Massachusetts.
The ride has 12 different routes, three starting lines, and five finish lines, so you can select a course that works best for you while staying on Cape Cod, or just get out and watch the riders as they make the journey between the two spots.
The Pan-Mass Challenge is a charity event that holds a special place for not only Cape Cod locals, but the people who attend it year after year. If you’ve ever wanted to do your part to raise money in support of cancer research, this ride provides an excellent opportunity to do so while experiencing some of the most breathtaking scenery anywhere in the country.
A Charity Event
As was mentioned before, the PMC is a charity event with money going to The Jimmy Fund, which raises money for cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The goal is to provide researchers at Dana-Farber’s with the funds needed to continue in their discovery of cures for the various types of cancer.
The money raised by the event is significant, as in 2017 alone, the Pan-Mass Challenge brought in $51 million. This money was then used to install state-of-the-art research labs, improve the training and knowledge base of the existing physicians and scientists working at Dana-Farber’s, and to fund various research goals at the institute. Over the last 38 years, nearly $600 million has been raised for The Jimmy Fund by participants in the Pan-Mass Challenge.
Since 2007, every single dollar raised by riders has gone to this charity, making perhaps the most productive cancer-research event in the country. If you get out there and raise some money for your ride, you can be confident that every cent is going toward the right cause.
The Various Routes
There are various rides from which to choose at the Pan-Mass Challenge, depending on your skill and endurance levels and how much free time you have to spend riding. For simplicity's sake, we'll focus on the rides that involve stops on Cape Cod, but keep in mind that there are other routes in other parts of Massachusetts. Some courses are one day, while others require an overnight stop in a community along the way.
The Bourne to Babson College route is a one-day ride that is 80 miles in length and involves a climb of about 1,200 feet. You'll start this ride first thing in the morning in Bourne, and it will take you between 3 and 8.5 hours to reach Babson College, which is just outside of Boston, with most riders finishing in under 6 hours. There is a fundraising minimum of $2,000 to participate in this ride.
One of the more scenic rides in the Pan-Mass Challenge is the Bourne to Provincetown route. This ride is about 80 miles in length and is one of the single-day events. The journey starts as soon as the sun rises on the Sunday morning and most riders finish by noon. Depending on rest times, the ride takes between 3.5 and 9 hours for most participants. The fundraising minimum for this route is $4,900 for early registrants and $8,000 for those who register after March 1.
Wellesley to Bourne is one of the most difficult one-day rides you'll find, as it is 84 miles long and involves ascents of 2,500 feet. The trip gets started in Wellesley at 7 AM and riders finish between 12:30 and 4:30, so you can expect to spend a substantial portion of your day riding. The fundraising minimum is $4,000.
The longest and most difficult of the one-day routes is Sturbridge to Bourne, which is 111 miles long and has ascents totaling 2,500 feet. The tour starts with 50 miles of long hills and finishes with rolling hills, so you'll have your work cut out for you. You'll get started at 5:30 AM, and it takes between 4 and 14 hours to complete the ride. The fundraising minimum is $4,000.
The Sturbridge to Provincetown route is a continuation of the Sturbridge to Bourne ride. If you sign up for this two-day route, you'll continue from Bourne to Provincetown one the second day. This addition adds 81 miles onto the previous day's itinerary, but the ride along the Cape is less hilly and, therefore, more leisurely.
Wellesley to Provincetown is another option, as it is a continuation of the Wellesley to Bourne route. This route is a two-day ride, and you’ll spend the night in Bourne before carrying on.
How to Get Involved
As you can see, there are plenty of options if you want to ride in the PMC, but it doesn’t end there, as you can still volunteer or fund-raise, even if you don’t have the endurance or time to participate in one of these rides.
You’ve probably noticed that there are fundraising minimums to participate in these rides, as well, which might not be attainable if you’re heading to Cape Cod for a family vacation, but by going somewhere along the route and showing your support for the riders, you are doing your part.
If you’re spending time in a vacation rental on Cape Cod on the August 4th weekend, make sure you head out and support the riders at the starting line in Bourne, the water stops in Barnstable, Brewster, and Wellfleet, the finish line in Provincetown, or anywhere else along the route.
There’s something special about seeing hundreds of riders working toward a common goal, and this is precisely what you’ll witness this summer on Cape Cod if you check out the Pan-Mass Challenge.
