Offering what is arguably some of the best sailing in New England, Cape Cod is made for exploring by boat. Hop on board your own Sailo yacht charter and soak up the good life in this Massachusetts hotspot.
There’s a lot of fun to be had in the waters around Cape Cod. This spit of land at the far end of Massachusetts is home to many pretty villages, incredible beaches and fantastic coastline. And, as the site of the arrival of the Pilgrim fathers, the whole area is awash with history too.
Cape Cod boat rentals come in a variety of shapes and sizes. For those whose dream is to hit the ocean in a classic monohull yacht, you’ll have plenty to choose from with Sailo. If you prefer a spot of fishing, or perhaps a motor yacht charter to get around the coastline then you’ll also find some great options in our boat rental inventory. Exploring the coast of Cape Cod is easy to do and a great way to find your own quiet beach or village and get away from the crowds.
Some of the best things to do in Cape Cod include saltwater or freshwater fishing, enjoying a sunset cruise or a day trip to admire the coastal scenery from the deck of your yacht charter. Whenever you’re heading to Cape Cod, take a look at Sailo and find your perfect boat rental.
Keen fishermen will love getting out on a boat with their rods in Cape Cod. Pick one of our fishing boat charters on Sailo and enjoy a day on the sea casting your line for some of the teeming marine life around these parts. If you’re lucky, you'll get to pull in some striped bass, bluefish, flounders, blackfish and false albacore (little tunny).
You don’t need to go far out to sea to get a bite on your line either. Fishing in Cape Cod is always a rewarding experience, no matter what you catch…
Just south of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard is well known as a sedate getaway for people from across the country and the world. As it is only accessible by boat or aircraft, what better way to arrive than on your own Sailo boat rental from Cape Cod? Martha’s Vineyard is blessed with some fantastic beaches, great fresh food and farm produce and hiking or cycling trails across the island. Visit Martha’s Vineyard either as a day trip from the mainland, or stay overnight if you’ve chosen a multi day yacht charter.
We mentioned that there is a wealth of history across Cape Cod, and one of the best things to do in Cape Cod is explore with your own boat rental. Hyannis Port is a six acre compound owned by the Kennedy Family, which you can see from the water as you pass. Provincetown is home to the Pilgrim Monument, a 252 ft granite tower that looks over the surrounding area and is visible from miles around. And of course, what visit to Massachusetts is complete without a visit to Plymouth Rock, the site of the Mayflower’s arrival in the New World.
At the far end of the spit of Cape Cod, Provincetown is a spectacular sailing location. Pick up your sailboat rental in Cape Cod and enjoy the views of the Race Point lighthouse as you head out into the ocean. Provincetown might be quite remote at the far end of Cape Cod, but it makes a great base for a day trip on a yacht charter. You’ll get to witness the incredible and unspoilt scenery including the many nature reserves and miles of sandy beaches. If you’re lucky you might even spot a friendly pod of dolphins or other marine life as you sail the seas on your boat charter.
Separating Falmouth from Cape Cod Bay, the Canal is a man made waterway that is a great way to access either Buzzards Bay or arrive in Cape Cod Bay itself. Sail past sleepy towns and rural landscapes, enjoying the slow pace of life in this part of the world. Some of the historic sights include the Cape Cod Railway Bridge, which is a vertical raising bridge that can be lifted when ships pass.
