Sunset Cruise from Falmouth Cape Cod — Reserve by the Seat

SHARED Sunset Cruises Are CLOSED For the Season


We depart from Falmouth before sunset to tour the scenic waterways in the area. Bring your own food and beverage and learn about the history, nature, estates and yachts you’ll see from the water. Reserve by the seat – a great option for a couple, small groups and individuals.

Detailed Description:

  • Arrive at the Clam Shack Dock on Falmouth Harbor at least 10 minutes before the scheduled departure. Plan Sea arrives at the dock 5-10 minutes before any departure
  • The deckhand will welcome you aboard and help stow your carry-ons
  • The Captain will tell you about the safety features including the Man Overboard procedure and other information
  • The vessel will leave the dock and enter Vineyard Sound. During the first half of the cruise, the seas could be bumpy. Feel free to serve the drinks, but hold off on the appetizers until we get into Woods Hole
  • The expert crew will provide fun facts, gossip, and tall tales while we pass by impressive private residences of the rich and famous, the summer houseboat community in Woods Hole, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and the Steamship Authority Dock
  • You will see the Nobska Lighthouse, the “airplane house” and the estates on Penzance Point
  • Cruise past the community of floating cottages in the harbor
  • You will want to stay seated as the experienced Captain navigates the boat through the most dangerous passage in this area. Woods Hole claims boats every year, and if the current is running, you’ll see why
  • Once through the Woods Hole passage, we enter Hadley Harbor in Naushon Island. The Forbes Family Trust privately holds the island and the rest of the Elizabeth Islands
  • It is out of the harbor and into Buzzards Bay for a beautiful sunset over the mainland
  • The kids now get a chance to pilot the boat if they’d like
  • Secure the food before we head back through Woods Hole. Watch out for the gray seals that sometimes haul out on the rocks in the passage on our way back to Falmouth Harbor
  • Plan Sea will return to the dock in time for dinner in one of the great restaurants
  • You will always remember the evening you spent aboard Plan Sea

Check the online schedule since times vary according to sunset times. Around 6:00 – 6:30 PM Departure and Return after sunset around 8:00 – 8:30PM
