We wanted a day exploring the coastline, we summer on the cape annually and are always looking for new ways to experience the sea. Ship Shops Power Boat Rentals had the best boats, prices and variety and we were really pleased with the vibe of the folks running the operation, the quality of the equipment and the value for the...

Had another great experience renting a boat from here. The staff was very friendly and the boat was great. We rented the 24 ft boat and headed out to Monomoy Island off Chatham. We spent the afternoon watching the seals and swimming in beautiful crystal clear water. I highly recommend taking your family and friends there.

Can't say enough about this place! Rented a boat and the folks working here were incredibly thorough and helpful. Also their rates were significantly less than other local boat rental places that we had considered.

This was our fifth year returning to Ship Shops for boat rental. 11 of us rented a 24' Boston Whaler for the day. We fished in the morning, went to Hyannis for lunch at Baxters, and then spent the rest of the day at Boater's Beach. The crew at Ship Shops were all very helpful and friendly, and their boats...

We rented two 20' boats from Ship Shops on 8/1/2014 (two boats because the size of our group was 12). The staff was knowledgable and friendly. The rates were good compared to other locations. Provided with each boat was a GPS so you can locate where you are and any potential hazards (sand bars, rocks, etc.), a full load of... More

Our first rental experience at the Cape and the staff was extremely helpful. Recommend going out towards the ocean as the river gets very shallow, thanks to the GPS we were constantly updated on the shallow parts and managed to avoid damaging the prop. We had a beautiful day weather wise without too much chop. All in all a fun... More

My wife and I had never rented a boat before, but really wanted to spend a fun day out on the water. To be honest, neither of us had had really any boating experience to speak of! The folks at Ship Shops were perfect. They put us very at ease right off the bat when making the reservation, assuring us... More

Great experience at Ship Shops. Judson kept instructions simple and complete for my first boat captain experience. GPS on board makes it that much more relaxing to tour about. Nice people to learn from! We had a great time. 2h was a good starter and next time going for a half day with destination in mind.
