Cape Cod Canal Cruise
Gate Prices Adult $15.00
Child (3-12) $7.00

The Cape Cod Canal is a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. It is the widest sea level canal (without locks) in the world. Ships can save 162 miles by using the Canal instead of having to travel around the tip of Cape Cod.

Passage through the Canal is also safer than having to deal with the dangerous shoals and unpredictable currents surrounding the outer Cape. Points of interest include Mass Maritime Academy, Sagamore Bridge, Bourne Bridge, Vertical Lift Railroad Bridge, Gray Gables, US Army Corps of Engineers-Canal Traffic Control Center, Herring Run, Taylor Point, Aptucxet Trading Post, Scusset Beach Fish Pier, Sandwich Boat Basin, and Cape Cod Bay.

The Go Boston® Card is the best choice for maximum savings and flexibility, which includes discount Cape Cod Canal Cruise tickets by Hy-Line Cruises, plus admission to dozens more top attractions.

Comments about Smart Destinations Cape Cod Canal Cruise:

2 hours is just the right amount of time to be on the water and hear about the history and sights - any longer and you start to lose interest. An enjoyable time on a well maintained boat.
