Commanded by the pirate Sam Bellamy, the Whydah was wrecked off Wellfleet in 1717, taking with her the treasure of fifty plundered ships. According to Cape folklore, Bellamy was returning to his love, Maria Hallett, the “The Witch of Wellfleet”, when his ship met disaster in one of the worst storms to strike the eastern seaboard. Only two men of 146 made it to the beach alive, making the Whydah the worst wreck ever on the shores of the Cape. Bellamy’s loss was history’s gain, however, as the contents of his flagship represent a unique look into the lives of the pirates, and an unprecedented cross-cultural sampling of treasures from the world of the 18th century.
Discovered by underwater explorer Barry Clifford, this archaeological shipwreck recovery project is a National Geographic Society “Special Event”, and the Whydah Pirate Museum is the headquarters for the on-going archaeological mission.
Here you can see the world’s only pirate treasure–together with personal remains as weapons, jewelry and clothing—and decipher the untold secrets of the pirates!
Geared for ages “6 to 106” the Whydah Pirate Museum is a “must-see” historical attraction on Cape Cod, our exhibition is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the entire family—whether you have just a half hour, or an entire afternoon!
A group of activists is trying to build a movement for Cape Cod towns to ban the sale of single-use plastic water bottles at retail stores. The nonprofit Sustainable Practices has already spearheaded a ban on single-use plastic bottles for town governments in 11 of the Cape's 15 towns, and its leadership and volunteers are optimistic this can also be done at the commercial level through town meeting votes in the Spring. Madhavi Venkatesan, the organization's executive director said the municipal ban was a great first step, and she believes the momentum is there to take a bigger step towards protecting the environment.
"Yes, we are optimistic," Venkatesan told Patch. "There is no question that it's the right thing to do."

Do not miss these three days of holiday revelry, from traditional carols ‘round the piano to the not so traditional Speedo run down Commercial Street. Not quite what Currier and Ives had in mind, Holly Folly antics are a fun kick-start to the season with a non-stop line-up of events including the Gay Men's Chorus, dancing into the night and the popular 'Shop Hop,' where you vie for great prizes while taking advantage of major sales happening in Provincetown's shops and galleries. Free to everyone is the ever popular Inn Stroll, an open house at a number of Ptown's famed guest houses. Pace yourself for this one, as the innkeepers out 'Martha Stewart' each other in decorations, treats and libations.
