Cape Cod Canal Tours

Connecting Cape Cod to Buzzards Bay, the Cape Cod Canal was created as an artificial waterway in 1914. Today it is maintained by the United States Army Corps of Engineers and is utilized for both recreational and commercial boating. The scenic walkways on both sides of the canal are great for walking, jogging, or biking. Hiking the nearby trails, fishing, and picnicking are other activity options for along the water. It’s also a great place to relax and simply watch the boats pass by.
 
The canal is also home to two notable bridges, including the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge — one of the longest vertical spans in the world. In total the canal runs more than 17 miles long. Those interested in the history and technology of the canal and its operation should be sure to check out the Cape Cod Canal Visitors Center.
