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

Had a great trip around Hyannis Harbor. Hannah was a great narrator and was very informative. She pointed out all the points of interest. She also gave us a brief history as well. The boat was comfortable and clean and easy to board.

Excited to go for a visit. We got a comfortable seat on top in the back outside. We had perfect weather and I even got a little sunburn. Ferry ride was smooth and beautiful scenery.

If you always wanted to see a little bit if the Cape from a boat, this is a reasonable way to do it! We gave our children the Cape Cod perspective that many never get to see, which is Cape Cod from a boat! See the inner and outer Harbor, the Kennedy Memorial and the Kennedy Compound. The tour was...

The 1hr. cruise around the Harbor was very interesting. Nice to get up close to the actual Kennedy Compound that we have all heard and read about over the years. Maria Shriver also still has her family home there. There is a group of Kennedy Homes by the actual Compound. You can park at the Hyannis Visitor center in the... More

We just took the Hyannisport Harbor Tour and had a great time. It was a brisk, clear fall day so we were dressed warmly, which was a plus. We started by mentioning to the ticket taker that my wife had mobility issues and due to the high tide the ramp was quite steep. They let us board first and were... More
