Best sunset cruise! Captain Joe knows the best places to take you to a relaxing afternoon or just a beautiful day out to Cape Cod bay! Check it out this summer!

The Captain and his crew made us feel like we were in his living room. They were very good at getting our rowdy friendly crowd to pay attention when it was important. I wish I could go out every night on this boat!

One of the best Cape Cod experiences ever! More than worth the $25 - educational and fun! Captain Joe provided the smoothest journey and our guide Andrea was a wealth of knowledge on Cape Cod ecosystem and history! Loved every minute of it!!

We took this tour on a whim after just spotting the boat, and we loved it! It's hard to imagine a guide with more information and more personality! A fabulous two hours!

When do you start your season? Can you handle 40-45 women from one club ? And at what price per person? Thank you.
