“Really Nice Boats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

We go to Cape Cod from California every year and always include at least one afternoon out in the ocean. We have rented from Ship Shops for the past 3 years. They have increased their boat selection every year and we have always been happy with their boats, staff and location. They have free parking and there is quick access to the speed zone in one direction and to the ocean in the other with beautiful scenery in and out of the river. One of the highlights of my twin 20 years olds!

“this is the one to visit!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

My family and I tried a few other local boat rental outlets before finding Ship Shops and let me tell you, this place is the one to visit!! The staff was amiable and helpful - they gave us an extensive tutorial until we felt comfortable driving the boat. The boat itself was great - nice looking and awesome for zipping around the coast. We cruised Bass River then went to Chatham for the day.

Boats to fit the whole family - affordable rates - amazing staff - great views of Nantucket Sound - what more could you ask for?

We'll be back to Ship Shops next summer.

“Highly Recomended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

The staff is friendly and the location is perfect. We rented a 20' boat for 4 hours, and had an amazing time! Very reasonably priced. The staff was very knowledgable and provided you with maps and a GPS to find your ay around. Must go to the Kennedy Compound, great view from the water!
