The boat is pretty quick - plenty to eat and drink with snacks, alcoholic and soft drinks. Lots of dogs on the ferry and that kept all the children happy for this short jaunt to Nantucket

Fantastic ride - better option than regular ferry if not taking a vehicle - very comfortable and many seating options

I can't actually comment on their cruise because I didn't take it, but I can comment on Sue, one of their employees. She helped us out in Martha's Vineyard when we missed our tour bus. she went out of her way to find us an alternate tour so we could enjoy the island. Kudos to them for having great employees!...

We did the 1hr trip around the harbour and the viewing of the Kennedy summer homes. Really nice old vessel with a great tour guide. Beautiful scenery and very affordable. Really cool to be able to see the Kennedy summer homes with your own eyes. I highly recommend this harbour cruise for the price, it is very reasonable. I would... More

Took my 8yr old fishing for the first time Saturday. We had a great time. The trip was exactly as the website describes. Looks like some of the other reviewers did not check before they went. https://www.hylinecruises.com/deep-sea-fishing-cruises/ I looked this all up before purchasing the 2-1 deal that was running earlier in the summer. You get a about a 40min... More

Travelled to nantucket and Martha's vineyard via slow ferry. Good journeys and good tours whilst on the islands.

16 dollars for an hour of motor boating to the Kennedy's summer resort and back, on the way a few other sites. Not sure if worth the time and money, especially if travelling on a ferry to the islands anyway.

I don't have any major complaint with this this service. They were on time and well organized. After using Steamship Authority for Nantucket this boat seemed older and more run down.

This 1-1/2 hour cruise around Hyannisport Harbor is nice for relaxing and sightseeing. We went specifically to see the Kennedy Compound and didn't get as close as we would've liked, which was disappointing. You can see the "main house" and other Kennedy homes from afar. Snacks are available on the boat. Take a jacket and/or hat because it can get... More

What a wonderful weekend venture. We took the Ferry from Hyannis on a gorgeous June 2014 day. I don't know how we did it but we were in 1st class so we had our own outside viewing to the island. We did not take the high speed trip so we could casually take in the salt air and sights. My... More
