    As a new or renewing Member of the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies, you are making an active contribution to the study and conservation of the Gulf of Maine, home to the great whales of the North Atlantic and the many other fantastic varieties of wildlife for which it serves as a primary habitat. They are defenseless without your support.

    But you will also benefit in the following ways:

    • You will receive the Center's newsletter Coastwatch;
    • You and your family will receive a member discount off the price of all regular whale-watch trips aboard the Dolphin Fleet.
    • You will receive 20% off on all purchases at our gift kiosk on MacMillan Pier or at our headquarters at 115 Bradford Street here in Provincetown.
    • And regardless of your membership level, if you are a new member, we will send you a premium as a token of our appreciation! See below for details.
