Something for everyone!
My family of 5 visits the Cape every summer and we are always looking for something new to do that is good for the kids (ages 4, 6 and 8 at the time). We stumbled upon Bass River Cruises & Kayaks by driving by on Route 28, and we decided to rent a kayak for 2 1/2 hours. It was perfect! We wore our bathing suits to their recommendation, brought a small cooler with sandwiches and water, kayaked to a beach, and took two tandem kayaks (the let us put an extra seat in for our youngest into one of the boats.) We had so much fun, went swimming and took lots of pictures of the beautiful homes, crabs and birds. We also ended up taking the River Cruise two days later at 11am. It was so interesting and informative, we were surprised! The kids got to drive the boat and there was a bookmark craft for them to make about halfway through. There were snacks and drinks onboard, and a drink for everyone and a snack for the kids only cost us about $9. This is something we will definitely be recommending to all our friends that travel to the Cape!
Not for us...
We decided to try this cruise to accommodate some family members who
weren't up to kayaking. First of all, there really is not all that much to see on
the Bass River. Second, the guide spoke so quickly in a think Boston accent,
that we couldn't understand much of what he said. Third, the boat goes very
slowly. We were looking for something with some more excitement for our 3
teen age boys. Perhaps it would be better suited to seniors?
