Enjoyable cruise around the harbor. The guides shared a lot of information on places we saw. Even had blankets for passengers as it was windy and chilly on our recent adventure (Oct. 10, 2015). Lots of fun!

We took a late-afternoon tour of Hyannis harbor, the lighthouses, and the stretch of water toward Hyannis Port and the Kennedy compound. This was our third visit to Hyannis, so the view from the water gave us an added perspective on the geography of the area and where certain land and water features were located relative to the house we...

Went for sunset cruise out into the harbor. Highlight in my opinion was viewing the Kennedy compound. Beautiful trip, smooth ride, and they had a bar and blankets for cool ocean breeze. Can't say enough nice things about the staff, very friendly and informative. Very reasonable pricing.

We took this cruise to see Hyannis Port and the Kennedy compound. The tour was very informative about the history of the Lewis bay, Hyannis port and the lighthouses of the area. The tour was about 75 minutes. The captain was very skilled, we did not even have a jolt when docking. The boat was a large catamaran, which can... More

Really enjoyed the cruise, very reasonably priced for the l hour 15 minute trip. The guide was very knowledgable about the lighthouses and then we got to see the Kennedy family homes which were amazing. The weather was sunny but got cool, we were offered blankets on the boat.

Had a very nice tour of the harbor and the Kennedy Estate from the water. The narrator was excellent, she knew her information about the harbor and the sights that we got to see on this tour. One hour and 15 min long. The ship was very nice and comfortable, we sat on the front deck because the weather was... More

Excellent 75 minute tour of Hyannis harbour, Hyannis Port, the islands, lighthouses in the bay and a view of the "Kennedy Compound". Good informative tour guides on board. Costs $20 adults, $18 over 65's and less for children. Good value. Highly recommended.

The HyLine cruises were not available the day I was in Hyannis, so I wound up on this trip. I was delighted to have a smaller boat with fewer people. Mobility is a problem, so I was happy to see how easy it was to get on board and walk around. The commentary by Holly was pleasant, no silliness or... More

The lighthouse and harbor tour out of Hyannis was wonderful. I liked the fact that the ship was a catamaran so I knew it would be stable in the water. The guide was very informative and helped make the tour very enjoyable on a beautiful September day.
