Cat Boat Rides
Cat Boat Rides offers sailboat charters and sailing excursions that explore the Cape Cod area, with routes through Hyannis Harbour to Hyannisport, and into the Nantucket Sound; the boat includes a well-stocked bar and delicious food.
We had a wonderful quiet and relaxing 2-hours on the catboat. If you are looking for a typical sailing-experience (just the water against the boat and the wind in the sails), this is the place to be. Of course the captain also pointed out the points of interest, but that were only a few on the way.
We went on the Catboat as a family of four for the first time and loved it! It was very relaxing. They also offer a coupon online which allowed for $3 credit per person for drinks while aboard, which seemed generous considering that the prices for drinks were reasonable to begin with. The ride was quiet and unbelievably beautiful! The only real drawback is that it's a bit pricey for the length of the ride. I would definitely recommend this ride to others...given that you're able to tolerate the price in comparison to the length of the ride.
This is the biggest waste of money on the Cape! I've been going to Cape Cod for years and have done just about everything. This year we decided to do the Catboat. $60 later we left feeling like we'd been cheated. The sunset sail was a joke. You get on and you sail around the bay - i.e. sail by yacht club, turn around, go to the other side of the bay, turn around, then go back to the dock! They did let the sail out for awhile, but didn't tell anyone so the rope burn on my ankles was a pain, not to mention the fact that several people got whacked with the metal cable things! We had a couple whose tongues must have gotten tangled because they didn't come up for air once the whole ride; a group of three getting wasted on champagne and a kid who wouldn't stop sneezing. They pushed drinks on you like it was a Bahamas booze cruise and for $30 a person they weren't even included! Very romantic. For the same price you can go on a whale watch out of Provincetown for 3 1/2 hours and see some amazing animals! Stay away from the catboat!
My nephew lives on the cape and every year I come down and try to do something new - this year was sailing on the Catboat. After you leave the harbor and the sail goes up, your whole body begins to relax - no sounds except the waves. Very calming, especially if you are stressed. Will definitely do it again. Boat is just the right size, will hold 22 people, but we had a group of 13 people.
It was great - do this if you can!!!

My husband and I wanted to do something unique in Hyannis rather than the usual ferry ride or tour boat. I found The Cat Boat website and thought it looked like a fun and exciting experience. We were lucky enough to go on the "maiden voyage" of The Cat Boat on May 20, 2006. It was everything I had expected and more. This is not a tourist trap. This is a genuine sail around Hyannis Harbor. It is a low-key, relaxing, and fun trip. No canned tour boat speeches, just "real" talk from our very knowledgable Captain Marcus Sherman. The Cat Boat only seats about 12 people so it is a very homey atmosphere. Cocktails, refreshments, and snacks are available! We really enjoyed our nearly 2 hour sail on The Cat Boat and would do it again in a heartbeat. If you want a "real" Cape Cod experience give The Cat Boat a try. You have nothing to lose and the fare was very reasonable! Thanks Captain Marcus and First Mate Kaitlyn, we had a blast! Jerry and Danielle (Michigan)
