We lucked out with perfect weather and spectacular sunset with the boat perfectly positioned by the operators. Nice beach-style live guitar by a local musician added nicely to the experience. Very pleasant, low-key and relaxing.

Pleasant surprise! Operated by a father and son - very nice people and very informative about Hyannis and surrounding areas. Boat is very clean and kept up very well! Was chilly the night we went but they provided nice blankets.
