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.

It's been a year since our last Cape Cod vacation. We went again in August - lucked out and had great weather so rented a boat from Ship Shops again. Service was as good as in the past and they had more boats this year. No better way to spend a day then alone, with friends, in the ocean.

We've been renting a boat from ship shops every year for the past 4 years during our cape cod vacations. They are friendly, have great boats to rent, and are at a great location along Bass River for river or ocean access. We typically boat to Hyannis for lunch, fish on the open ocean and visit a beach. There was... More

Thanks ! Glad you are having fun and making us a part of your vacation. Sorry about the less responsive employee. My guess is we were short handed or out straight with rentals. Next time ask for Lynne or Judson they are my school teachers and as the rentals are there only job at Ship Shops they are great with... More

I haven't rented lately but I get my gas here all the time. They are nice and it is easy in and out for boaters. They rent boats in a couple of sizes and they rent half day and whole day. The boats look pretty new and well cared for. I would rent from them anytime.

We rented a boat from Ship Shops and had a great experience. They offered us either a full day or half day rental and provided the life preservers, etc. The boat was great and we all had a great time. Would highly recommend Ship Shops if you want to rent a great boat.

We had a fantastic experience renting from Ship Shops. The staff is friendly and helpful, the boats and motors are in great shape and the pricing is reasonable. We spent 4 hours on a nice, 22' Boston Whaler Outrage with an Evinrude 175 leisurely going up and down the Bass River on a gorgeous June day. When we returned to... More

We go to Cape Cod from California every year and always include at least one afternoon out in the ocean. We have rented from Ship Shops for the past 3 years. They have increased their boat selection every year and we have always been happy with their boats, staff and location. They have free parking and there is quick access... More

My family and I tried a few other local boat rental outlets before finding Ship Shops and let me tell you, this place is the one to visit!! The staff was amiable and helpful - they gave us an extensive tutorial until we felt comfortable driving the boat. The boat itself was great - nice looking and awesome for zipping... More
