Grabbed a Cape Cod Daily Deal for this Harbor Cruise - it was a perfectly lovely day, Emma was a very informative hostess and the ride was smooth and easy! We had lots of room to walk around and see from both port and starboard, and loved the cruise!

Took the Around the Sound cruise from Hy-line. Boarded in Hyannis, chose to go to Nantucket first. Spent 4 hours on the island of Nantucket then Boarded and headed off to spend 6 hours on Martha's Vinyard. Then returned to Hyannis. The ferry was on time for every ride. Ferry was comfortable, the experience was well worth the cost. Take... More

We booked our tickets online for the Hy-line for transport between Hyannis and Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. The website was confusing. We had to phone the ticket office for help. Due to the hurricane, the service for the ferry was suspended for a few days. They called us to let us know of the suspension of the service and did... More

We did this tour as part of a shore excursion from a cruise. The boat was comfortable and the narration was excellent. Very good views of the homes including those on the Kennedy compound. Certainly worth the time. We were early for the sailing, so we hung out in some very comfortable Adirondack chairs until it was ready to go.... More

The ferry boat ride went very smoothly. The people on the boat were great. The people that checked you in were grouchy. When you pull up you must make a decision instantaneously of if you want to park in their lot. Decide right now! We decided to park in their lot. When paying for parking, they said their parking lot... More

Beautiful- I've never seen the Kennedy compound from the water before and it was gorgeous! Our tour guide was great and sunset was stunning from the water- make sure you sit on the right side of the boat when leaving the Harbor! It was $17 a person but many Cape Cod books have coupons for this!

The boat ride is fun by itself. The Narrator really explains the history and development of Hyannis harbor. AS we left the harbor and came to the are within view of the Kennedy Compound she explained who lived in which building. She also knew the other surrounding houses pretty well. We had a great time. We want to do it... More

Would highly recommend, only an hour but worth it when you use a $2 off coupon found in most books. Our captain and crew was great but the best part was the tour guide. Very nice and super funny!

Having lived on the Cape most of our lives, we decided to " play tourist " today! We took the Sunday 10am harbor cruise. Kids are free on both the 10am and 11:15 cruises, so that is a great value. Also, the boat was nearly empty, about 15 people max, as most tourists are still at breakfast,or sleeping in on... More

Hy-Line is always clean and an easy way to get back and forth between the islands. The price is reasonable. Great crew.
