About the Cape Tiki Cruises

Each Cape Tiki Cruise provides 2 hours of guided travel along the Bass River estuary. Enjoy the local wildlife sightings and views of some well-known destinations like Windmill Beach, Ship Shops Marina, Bass river golf course and the quaint but bustling Bass River Marina and Yacht Club. Don’t forget to wave to the river residents enjoying the summer on their docks!

Once aboard, stow your belongings, kick back and let our crew do the driving! We’ll give you a little history, a lot of made-up stories, and a memorable trip along Bass River! Make it a real Cape Cod picnic by packing your cooler with locally sourced items:

Each cruise will have a maximum of 6 people on board plus the Captain and crew, and can be rented for private cruises upon request! While we mainly operate out of Bass River, inquiries for other bodies of water can be discussed upon request as well. We will do our best to accommodate as long as conditions allow.

If you are located on Bass River, please inquire about getting picked up right at your dock!

NOTE: We ask that patrons arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to their scheduled departure time.
