“Wonderful cruise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I have lived in West Dennis for the past 21 summers and finally,after all these years, decided to take a friend of mine from Hawaii on the Starfish Cruise. Loved it and found it very informative. It was a beautiful day and there was a breeze coming off the water which was greatly appreciated during one of our heat waves. Cocktails, beer and wine are available and you are allowed to bring snacks on board. I have recommended this activity to my neighbors when they are looking to entertain their company.

“Boring and uninteresting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We were severely disappointed with this tour as the two on board guides were reading from a script, and there shouldn't be anything wrong with that, but they were both monotonous and unintelligible and sounded as if they had no interest in what they were saying and that wasn't surprising as the spiel consisted almost entirely of who lived where and how much was paid for a property. If one stopped listening and just admired the rather beautiful riverside houses and looked at the wildlife then this would be a vast improvement. There is so much of interest on the Cape and this trip is not worth the time.

“Nice cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I didnt realize when I booked the Bass River Cruise that it was actually a tour of homes from the River. It was a beautiful day so it was relaxing. The intercom system on the boat definitely needs updating. We were told that the best seats were at the front of the boat, but with the noise of the water and engine we couldn't hear the Captain telling us the tales of all the homes. Its a nice 90 minutes on the river if the weather is good.

“Great time - beautiful river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a flat bottom boat and the trip is over flat water - no seasick worries. It is a fun trip up and down one of the most beautiful rivers on the East coast. A couple of major television and movie stars live on the banks of this gorgeous river. This provides a great view of homes that you could never see from the street.

“A great way to see the area!”

Thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minute trip around the Bass River. Interesting commentary and fabulous scenery. A great way to see the area. Very reasonably priced.
