The historic Cape Cod Canal's only sightseeing cruise!
This man-made canal, a National Historic Civil Engineering landmark, is the widest sea-level canal (without locks) in the world.It was built to create more efficient nautical trade routes, opening in July 1914. Passage through the Canal is safer than having to maneuver around the dangerous shoals and unpredictable currents surrounding the Outer Cape, and also saves ships more than 160 miles of travel, instead of having to navigate around the tip of Cape Cod.
The Cape and Islands enjoy a rich history created by people of color from the region. Many journeyed from across the ocean, and once here, continued journeys of another kind. We see the extraordinary roles and contributions of people of color spanning the eras of the slave trade, abolitionism, and more recently, the civil rights movement. People of color have been the backbone of the whaling and cranberry industries over the centuries. African-Americans, Cape Verdeans, and other people of color helped shape the Cape Cod of today.
