... a pot of krill. Really caught our interest and passed the time.
The first whale was spotted way off the normal track and when we got to the feeding ground we had 7-9 whales feeding. I am v proud of James' video that he took and have included it with some ropey stills. Also great views of the lighthouses and dunes. We were all really aware of being caught on the wrong side of the boat. We also had three "full breaches" the classic hunchback up and out of the water but ...
This morning we drove to Falmouth, about 45 minutes, to catch the Island Queen Ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Martha's Vineyard is primarily known as a summer colony, and is accessible only by boat and air. There are about 16000 permanent residents but over summer the population can swell to 100,000 or more. The ferry trip takes about 35 minutes. The day started out overcast and the sea was quite choppy but by the time we arrived the sun was shining again. You can get an all day ...
... shell on the top and winded herself and cut two fingers as well. Razor sharp shells all over- bring back Cornwall and weaver fish. Extent of team injuries outlined below in the photos.
Greater injury was the parking ticket we got for not displaying a 'Beach Permit' - smallest sign ever at approach to beach so now need to work out how to pay a fine when it wants a cheque. Ho hum. Only $30 but a hassle.

Historical Traveler Reviews Cape Codder Resort & Spa Hyannis

(the kids get unpatient when the food takes a long time) it was a birthday at the table across and they where very helpful by singing. after we went to the pool. it looked great. the kids loved the wave pool and the water slides they we huge one of the kids were afraid to go on it. they tried it and couldn't resist to go back on it. then we went back to the room it was fantastic. they had movies that were still in therters the kids loved it. the room was great. the ice maker wasas 3 feet away from the room .the maid service was execellent. i was so clean all the employees maid sure the you were enjoying it. i can't wait until the summer to go back.
Don't Stay Here!
The cape codder resort was not my moneys worth. They didnt even have little refridgerators for the money we paid. The room amenities were ver minimal I might add. When checkout time came the staff was very very very rude. I dont know who they were but id fire them in a second if I could. Its not worth staying here. For the money you pay you get ripped off.
I am writing to share our wonderful experience at the Cape Codder Resort in Hyannis. My husband and I were completely exhausted and sick of the terrible Boston weather. We need an escape but didn't have time for a long trip. We read about the Cape Codder and decided to give it a try. We arrived on Friday night, tired and miserable. We were welcomed by a friendly front desk person and a roaring fire in the large, lobby fireplace. Our room was lovely, well-appointed, and spotlessly clean. We arose to find it snowing lightly, so we ate an enormous breakfast at the on-site Hearth and Kettle Restaurant and decided to explore the hotel. We were delighted by the incredible wave pool and thrilled to find a full service spa around the corner. We each booked two services and returned to the pool for some fun. The spa was a highlight of our trip. The masseuse pulled the knots right out of my legs and I felt relaxed and calm.After a nap, my husband and I had dinner at the hotel's main dining room, a lovely restaurant called VJ's. The service was friendly and professional, the wine list extensive, and the food was extraordinary. We were delighted to find an appetizer of fois gras, cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. My filet mignon with three sauces was fork tender and tasted delicious. Although we were full, we couldn't resist sampling the sinful desserts. We hated to leave the next morning and have made a pact to return for Valentine's Day weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by how affordable our weekend escape was for such high quality. The Cape Codder gets high marks from both of us, and we're very discriminating travelers.
Don't miss this one!
I have had the pleasure of staying at the Cape Codder several times, both for business and pleasure. You will not find a better full service property for families, couples or business. Attention to detail is a specialty of the Catania Family, well respected operators of the hearth n kettle restaurants. Their staff is well trained, rooms beautifully decorated and I have never had a bad meal there...even when I was a registrant at a conference attending a 500 person clambake! And ladies...make sure you check out the spa...they have some of the finest treatments around.
After reading some of your reviews we almost changed hotels. I am very grateful I didn't we had a blast at this hotel. From the moment we checked in with their very professional staff. We stayed in a deluxe room very comfortable and clean. Then off to lunch we went and had a great meal in there hearth and Kettle rest. Food was better then great service was terrific. The kids couldn't wait to go into the pool well we saw pictures on the internet but our mouths dropped open when we saw this faboulous pool the kids at heart came out in even me and my husband as we played in the wave pool. The kids had a ball on the water slides. I even got the best pedicue and manicure ever at the spa. We already rebooked our return for april we can't wait to go back. these other comments sure they are talking about the same resort. I think not. This hotel is nothingbut the best Keep up the good work....
We stayed at the Cape Codder 12/19/02 to 12/21/02. At first, I was apprehensive after reading the reviews posted here. It was my husbands 40th birthday, and I wanted to surprise him with a wonderful getaway. The Cape Codder did all that and more--they did not disappoint!
Avoid at all costs
Just to echo another review of this hotel, we found the staff to be unhelpful and rude, and the amenities very far from the luxury promised in the brochure and on the website. I also note with interest that the Cape Codder employee who has written in at no point addresses the concerns raised by the previous reviewer, preferring instead to use random 'satisfied' quotes as if this somehow renders any criticism raised invalid. When I return to the Cape, if the Cape Codder was the only hotel with rooms I would still prefer to sleep in my car. Avoid!
As a senior member of the management team here at the Cape Codder Resort & Spa, I was distressed to learn of the negative experience one of our guests had with us. With that said, I have provided some feedback we have recieved from some of our previous guests through our guest comment card program...
I stayed in this so called luxury hotel one night last year. The "wave pool" is a 3 feet deep kiddie pool. They have no real pool. I left the room at 11pm to go to my office; I came back at 1am. A frightening looking gentleman was standing in the window watching my male companion sleep. The gentleman took off when I noticed him, and I went about my business of getting ready for bed.About 10 minutes later, I looked through the window (the shades didn't draw all the way) and this gentleman was now sitting in a car parked facing our window, was visibly masturbating, and waved to me. I phoned the front desk and insisted the police be called; they refused and sent private security. The gentlemen drove off as security was driving up. We were obviously not able to sleep, and had an important function in the morning. In the morning the hotel had absolutely no electricity. I walked down to the front desk and requested flashlights so we might be able to shave and get ready. I was given two lousy glowsticks.
