Ready to explore the cape cod canal?
The Cape Cod Canal, a man-made National Civil Engineering Landmark, is the widest sea-level canal (without locks) in the world. Come out with us on a tour, and see all the interesting landmarks along the canal, or join us for one of our very popular music cruises! Either way, it's guaranteed to be a wonderful time out on the water.
The historic Cape Cod Canal’s only sightseeing cruise!
The canal was built to create more efficient nautical trade routes, opening in July 1914. Passage through the canal is safer than having to maneuver around the dangerous shoals and unpredictable currents surrounding the Outer Cape, and also saves ships more than 160 miles of travel, instead of having to navigate around the tip of Cape Cod.
We operate two and three hour sightseeing cruises, featuring live narration about the fascinating history and points of interest along the Canal.
Points of interest include Massachusetts Maritime Academy, Sagamore Bridge, Bourne Bridge, Vertical Lift Railroad Bridge, Gray Gables, Herring Run, Aptucxet Trading Post, Scusset Beach Fish Pier, Sandwich Boat Basin and Cape Cod Bay.
During the summer, we also offer specialty cruises such as our KIDS RIDE FREE Family Cruise, Sunset Cocktail Cruise, Friends and Family Music Cruise, and a Live Music Cruise (21+)!
