“Boring and uninteresting”

Starfish Bass River Cruises
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We were severely disappointed with this tour as the two on board guides were reading from a script, and there shouldn't be anything wrong with that, but they were both monotonous and unintelligible and sounded as if they had no interest in what they were saying and that wasn't surprising as the spiel consisted almost entirely of who lived where and how much was paid for a property. If one stopped listening and just admired the rather beautiful riverside houses and looked at the wildlife then this would be a vast improvement. There is so much of interest on the Cape and this trip is not worth the time.

I didnt realize when I booked the Bass River Cruise that it was actually a tour of homes from the River. It was a beautiful day so it was relaxing. The intercom system on the boat definitely needs updating. We were told that the best seats were at the front of the boat, but with the noise of the water and engine we couldn't hear the Captain telling us the tales of all the homes. Its a nice 90 minutes on the river if the weather is good.

This is a flat bottom boat and the trip is over flat water - no seasick worries. It is a fun trip up and down one of the most beautiful rivers on the East coast. A couple of major television and movie stars live on the banks of this gorgeous river. This provides a great view of homes that you could never see from the street.

Thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minute trip around the Bass River. Interesting commentary and fabulous scenery. A great way to see the area. Very reasonably priced.

We enjoyed the use of 2 2-person kayaks. River was kind of strong with wind blowing, so we may come back another time.
