This was purchased as a whim on living social and it was the best! My fiancé and I had never done deep sea fishing before so we figured we would take a weekend trip to the cape and try our luck at it. It was AWESOME! We did the bottom fishing trip. The staff and capital were very helpful. We... More

We visited the Cape for the first time. My daughter and I love to fish so thought since we were so close, why not try deep sea fishing. The weather didn't look like a good beach day so we made reservations for the next day. After a few rescheduling events due to weather we headed out on the boat with... More

The boat goes out real slow. It goes to Hyannis Port/Kennedy Compound. Out the way back the boat picks up speed and gets a little rocky. You could hardly hear the commentary over the motor. Very nice staff!!

I purchased a Living Social deal for the Hy-Line Traditional to Martha's Vineyard. Boy was that a mistake! Unfortunately, the weather was not great the day we visited the island and the waters were choppy. The boat was rocking so much that the crew finally got out the 'barf bags' just in case any passengers had issues. This part of... More

I have taken the traditional ferries many years ago and now with the Hi-speed, you barely know you are on a boat if you sit inside! We sat outside on the way to Martha's Vineyard and it was great! If you can afford it, I recommend the Hi-speed Ferry :)

The boat ride is about one hour. They gave us a photo of the shore with the Kennedy houses identified. This way we knew hat we were looking at. The guide gave a talk and answered our questions. We also saw Hyannis Harbor, some notable boats, and other fancy and famous houses. The Kennedy Compound is the #1 attraction in... More

want to get out on the water and hear a little of the history of cape cod? this is the way to do it. One nice touch, after the overview and before we turned back to shore, the crew comes out and walks around asking if you have any further questions. fun and informative.

Took this cruise around the Hyannisport harbor. Advertises seeing the Kennedy compound, but you really can't get close enough by boat to really appreciate the homes. The tour guide on board used a monotone delivery and did not add anything to the tour. It was nice to get out on the water and see all the beautiful boats....but don't go... More

If you think you'll see the Kennedy compound, think again! It was so far away - the boat doesn't go near the shore at all! Bring binoculars! The ferry was ok, had bathroom and snack bar down below. Audio system was down, so we didn't have narration of sites (but they were far away anyway!

From the first email from the UK to the helpful Betsy to prompt arrival on Martha's Vineyard this company impressed us with it's friendly professionalism. The day before we sailed realised we had booked the wrong tickets and went to the office at 7pm -both the gentleman on the gate and the lady in the office calmed us down with... More
