Set sail this summer on a relaxing Cape Cod cruise

Hy-Line Cruises’ Cape Cod Canal Cruise

What’s one of the best-kept secrets in the village of Onset? According to Philip Scudder, principal of Hy-Line Cruises, it’s his company’s Cape Cod Canal Cruise—the only sightseeing cruise on the historic canal. Cruises depart from the Onset Town Pier from the end of May through Columbus Day and last two or three hours. Two-hour trips take passengers through the canal up to the Bournedale Herring Run, while three-hour trips travel all the way through the canal and into Cape Cod Bay. Guides provide history on the manmade waterway, built in 1914, as well as the many sights along the way, from Massachusetts Maritime Academy and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers buildings, to the Sagamore, Bourne and Cape Cod Canal Railroad bridges.

“Most people just travel over these bridges,” Scudder says. “On a Canal Cruise, you get to see what they really look like.” Those without sea legs need not fear, as Hy-Line’s canal tours are “calm water cruising,” Scudder says. “It’s a relaxing, scenic trip on the water filled with history.” Hy-Line also offers specialty canal cruises during the summer, including a Sunset Cocktail Cruise, Kids Ride Free Family Cruise and the 21-plus Live Music Cruise.
