If you are interested in renting a boat while visiting Cape Cod, Ship Shops is the place to do it. The staff is friendly and helpful. They give even novice boaters the instruction to have confidence taking a boat out.
We have rented almost every summer for the past ten years and have always had a great time on the water. The boats are well cared for and the location along the Bass River gives us many options for our excursion. Their flexibility is also a positive. Boats are available for the whole day, half day or two hours.
Pack your sunscreen and a picnic for a wonderful day!

We try to rent here once or twice a summer. We have rented everything from a 16ft to 24ft Whaler. The staff is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We can't say enough about Ship Shop, even if you are a beginner, they will set you in the right direction and if you know what you are doing - it's a blast!

Always professional and helpful! Care taken with boat and billing. Always do what they say they will do but consult before completing work! Highly recommend!

We rented a boat from them recently for a 2 hour rental. We got there 1/2 hour early and they got us out quickly so we could experience more time on the river. The boat and equipment was awesome. We were well prepped by them before going out and as a result we had an awesome time. They gave us tips on some beaches we could go to along with other sites. They are a first class operation and look forward to going there again next year. If you have the chance, we highly recommend renting from them.

We rented a boat for 2 hours and loved our experience! Service was amazing-they were extremely friendly on the phone & in person. Gave us a great tutorial on where to take the boat & how to operate the boat safely. Great time swimming and picnicking on the 24 foot boat. Would definitely recommend and use them again.
