Sailing Schedule

A typical sailing cruise includes departure from Hyannis Inner Harbor, sailing down the channel towards the ocean and through the Hyannis Yacht Club anchorage area past more than 200 fine boats and yachts and then through scenic Lewis Bay. The following routes and destinations of our scheduled public excursions may be selected to suit the desires of a private charter.

12:15 & 2:15 pm Hyannis Port Trips – We sail out Hyannis Channel, past Dunbar Point among busy harbor traffic, past Great Island (the 600 acre estate of the Chase family), past Kalmus Beach and over to peaceful Hyannis Port Harbor to see the impressive waterfront homes of the Kennedy family and other residents. We sail especially close to the Kennedy’s’ beach, passing near the Kennedy’s’ beautiful sailing yachts anchored off the Hyannis Port Yacht Club. Your favorite beverage and a sandwich served from our galley will compliment the ambiance of this popular cruise.

4:00 Blue Water Sail – When the wind is best, The Eventide heads offshore into Nantucket Sound for a good rousing sail off Point Gammon before returning back to dock. We get excellent views of three historic lighthouses; Olde Hyannis Light, Point Gammon Light, and Channel Point Light. A premium bottled beer from our bar is refreshing in the warm afternoon sun.

6:00 Sunset / Cocktail Cruise – The accent is upon serious relaxation. There is no particular destination or route and the Captain takes best advantage of the conditions to spend maximum time under sail power only.

We usually sail through Lewis Bay over to the Pine Cove Wildlife Sanctuary, a beautiful unspoiled salt marsh we view up close. This area is inhabited with several species of protected marine and shore birds, including: osprey, black cormorant, blue heron, green heron, white egret, loon, swan, canada goose, various ducks, terns, sandpipers and gulls. Sometimes we see white tailed deer, red tail fox, and coyote on the shore. Nature lovers and children will be delighted. Here the only sounds are bird calls and wind in the rigging.

This is a quiet time of day with little distraction from other boat traffic. Enjoy your favorite beverage with a lobster roll, shrimp cocktail, or prime roast beef sandwich from our galley. And don’t forget to print your galley coupon to save some money!
