My book club has done this twice! If you hate crowds and traffic, this is for you. A nice relaxing hour or more on the smooth waters of the Bass River. Well narrated, sweet and gentle afternoon. Partly shaded, partly in the sun.

We had three generations take this cruise and we all really enjoyed it! The Captain and First Mate shared a wealth of information about the area through the entire 90 minute tour. We learned a lot and enjoyed seeing the beach from the water. They...More

Great opportunity to see Yarmouth and West Dennis from the water along the Bass river. The captain is full of good information as well as useless information that is humorous. On many occasions he allows children to steer the boat. Very informative and family friendly....More
