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... read 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.

This one hour boat ride was a great activity for our entire family (kids, parents, grandparents). Nicely commentated harbor history tour of all the sights on the way to the Kennedy compound, which was nicely explained from the water (there are no stops). The tour guide was adorable and spoke clearly and at a perfect pace (for those with hearing... More

I have this three stars because of the attitude of the captain. We call in advance to make sure they could accommodate is due to my son in a wheel chair. Their brochure stated that they did. We explained what we had and they assured us that it would not be a problem. When we got there they checked us... More

It was sweltering hot and I jumped about. The tour was informative and the breeze refreshing. A little pricey as a walk up, I probably should have checked Groupon, but all around thumbs up.

This cruise was part of a shore excursion from a cruise ship calling at Boston. The excursion boat first took us out of Hynannis harbor and then out past the dunes and beaches and then paused offshore by the Kennedy compound. The captain pointed out the landmarks as we passed by and told stories which brought them to life. Off... More

Walked to the Harbor, saw this great looking boat coming in. Noticed the schedule, another trip was leaving in ten minutes. What a surprise, we had so much fun.Saw the coastline, heard all the history of the area. Was fascinating to hear, staff did a great job. The water was choppy but the Captain did a great job. Watching him... More
