Recently I took my girlfriend on a quick getaway to the Cape. We only spent 2 days there and wanted to seek out some true Cape Cod-esque adventures. Before our trip we looked online to get a few ideas and that's when we came across Bay Spirit Tours. It looked like something fun to try so we decided to go for it. It was a GREAT decision!

First of all, we opted to buy our tickets online ahead of time so we'd be ready to go, and that process was very easy. When the day came for our tour it turned out there was going to be some bad weather rolling in at the time we'd purchased tickets to go, so I called up Bay Spirit to see if there was anything we could do about that. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. They told us we could switch to an earlier tour with no added fees, which we did.

The tour itself was a lot of fun. We chose to do their Lighthouse Tour, but it was a tough decision since all of the tours they offer sounded intriguing. The tour boat is spacious and gives you a nice smooth ride. The crew is friendly and EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE about the area and its history. They also offer beverages during the tour which are brought to you so you don't miss any of the action. They also provided blankets to anyone who got a little chilly out on the water. Captain Bob and Jacob were very entertaining as they gave a history of the lighthouses in the area and also pointed out a lot of noteworthy spots around Lewis Bay. Captain Bob concluded the tour with a bit of "show and tell" where he gave us just a glimpse of his expertise in all things sea life.

The cost of the tour is very reasonable and the tour itself is the perfect activity to do either as a couple or a family that gives you a fun look at Cape Cod life.

We went on a night where there was live music and the singer was great! Had an awesome time with our family and are going again in September.

Four gals on a reunion trip were disappointed this morning when the harbour tour boat wouldn't go out due to overcast skies and a little rain...Captain Bob, tour guide Andy, and handsome, funny, great with kids bartender (i feel terrible, i have forgotten his name) with Bay Spirit Tours took us on the Lighthouse tour, and it was terrific! We will come back for the sunset cruise before we go home!
