Private Charters by Boat
Let us put the fun in your function! With a wide range of choices, we can help you with a private charter for your party or meeting group. Our sightseeing vessels can comfortably accommodate your group allowing ample room for catering and a small band or DJ:
M/V Viking is based in Onset, ten minutes from the Bourne Bridge. During her summer schedule, Friday and Saturday evenings are not available since our public cruises must run, however your group may consider a “buy-out” option including the pre-scheduled musicians (premium pricing).
M/V Jonathan Lewis is based in downtown Hyannis, from the Ocean Street Dock. This vessel operates daily from May through October, however charters are an option outside of this schedule and sometimes a “buy-out” is an option of a pre-existing cruise.
CHARTER RATE: $800.00 for the first 1-½ hours (minimum); $150.00 for each additional ½ hour. This includes the operating crew and bartenders (if needed). Rates are subject to vessel availability.
CAPACITY: The capacity has been calculated to allow for ample space and comfort, assuming cooperative weather conditions.
ALCOHOL: Massachusetts licensing requires that all beverages be provided by Hy-Line. Several options are available in selecting how beverages are to be served: you could provide an open bar, or simply have a straight cash bar, restrict what is to be served, or give each guest a predetermined number of coupons to redeem. No beverage may be served until the vessel has actually departed from the dock.
CATERING: The charterer must hire an outside caterer. We suggest that anyone unfamiliar with our boats speaks to us about the limitations posed. For instance, Coast Guard requirements prevent the use of glass, china or unfixed seating, and our vessel does not have a full galley on board. Requirements also prevent smoking in the enclosed deck areas.

Great for Anniversary Celebrations, Corporate Functions, Birthday Parties, Fundraisers, and Weddings!
“I just want to tell you how much fun we had last night. I saw people I hadn’t seen since graduation – 34 years! The band was great! It reminded me of my high school dances! We had a blast and will do it again in a few years. I know everyone said they would definitely come back.”
