A nice half day trip while staying at The Captain’s Manor Inn is exploring Woods Hole Village a mere 3 miles down the road.ย  Thisย ย  quaint seaside village and is home to the internationally acclaimed Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (nicknamed WHOI) and the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) which is an international center for research, education, and training in biology.

Take a leisurely walk or bike ride down the Shining Sea Bikeway or hop on the Falmouth SWOOSH trolley to travel the 3 miles to the Village.ย  Enjoy a walk down Water Street for some window shopping or to check out the famous popovers at Pie in the Sky Bakery or the lobster tacos at Quicks Hole.

A favorite area to visit just down the road from our Cape Cod bed and breakfast is Woods Hole in Falmouth.ย  The picture below features one of our guests, Norman, inside Alvin the submarine while visiting The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution this past summer.ย  Alvin has taken 12,000 people on over 4,000 dives the most famous being the exploration of the wreckage of RMS Titanic in 1986.

We recently learned that Alvin is undergoing a major overhaul and upgrade. The overhaul will take 16 months.
