For a truly unique view of Martha's Vineyard, consider booking a private charter on a powerboat day sail. Take a tour of Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, Chappy or Tashmoo and see the island lighthouses, harbors and beautiful scenery from the water.
The Island Time charter offers these tours as well as sunset cruises catching the tremendous Menemsha sunsets and seal watch tours to observe the seals that live near Wasque shoals. Other unique tours include rides near the colorful clay cliffs of Gay Head with the naturist option for therapeutic clay baths (highly recommended).
Tours are very flexible and can be half day or full day. The boat is a 26 foot Hydra Sports with an Evinrude E-TEC 250 HP engine. She has a private cuddy cabin and toilet and a large T-top providing shade when you need a break from the sun. There are swim platforms for easy access for swimming and fresh water to rinse off the salt water.
The captain suggests bringing a bag of items you would typically bring to the beach...sunscreen, sunglasses, swimsuits, dry clothes, camera and towels.
Folks of all ages are welcome, however, parents with children in the 1-6 year old range may find that the children's naturally active behavior and short attention spans may result in a more stressful than relaxing voyage.
If you own a vacation rental or Inn on the Vineyard, talk with Martha's Vineyard Leisure Charters about deals for cruises for your guests as a way to highlight your rental in the sea of rental properties.
