This is a hidden gem! We wanted to take another harbor cruise but due to choppy waves they had canceled there sailings for the rest of the day. As we were walking around another couple asked the captain if they were going out and he stated he need to have 6 to go out and we had 4 in our... More

Walking along the harbor one afternoon, this very personable young woman told us about the harbor tour and the quite reasonable price. We continued our walk and then returned for the 4 PM tour. It was very enjoyable and very informative. There were beverages available for purchase, as well as blankets to use (for free). We didn't partake of the... More

My family had such a great time with the Bay Spirit Lighthouse Tour! Cindy was a great host! Captain Bob, I believe was his name, showed us some amazing views! Got to breathe in some fresh sea air, see some Kennedy homes and boats and completely disconnect from the world! And was able to take home a beautiful sand dollar... More

My husband and I were sitting on a beautiful Sunday afternoon looking at Hyannis Harbor. We were across from the Bay Spirit. We decided why not. I had done a harbor last year with a competitor and enjoyed it. So we opted to try another cruise. We got on 5 minutes before they left. It was a 75 minute tour... More

This year was our second year in a row sailing with the Bay Spirit crew. The first time we went on the Sunset cruise which was really lovely. This time we went on the Lighthouse tour which was very fun and informative. Captain Bob shared some of the "treasures" they've found over the years from a "treasure chest" with the... More

We had a great sunset cruise with Jacob at the helm. I called a couple weeks in advance and they were quick to respond to my calls. There were only 7 of us (it holds 49) so we had the boat to ourselves. Fortunately the weather cooperated and even though it was a cloudy day it cleared before sunset and... More

We spent a little over an hour on a 53 foot catamaran, captained by Jacob and narrated by Carol. Relaxing and informative. Nice to see the Cape from the water.

The boat ride was lovely, the catamaran itself is comfortable and clean. The cost was affordable and I recommend it for a relaxing time on the water. The captain was very friendly, so is the nice lady who took the reservations. But, when she came on board and started the narrative, it soon became an autobigraphical account of her and... More

I am not even a vacationing tourist ! I live just off Hyannis Harbor, and find may way onto the Bay Spirit several times a month. Capt. Bob and his crew are true professional mariners, with a true passion for the service they provide. The boat is spacious, and super stable on the waters. There is always a great live... More
