The best way to see the memorable sights and beauty of Hyannis is by the sea. Relax and enjoy the views, while your guide explains the various points of interest. It’s a fascinating (and sometimes comical) history that includes aspects of our maritime industry, the people who established our waterfront community, and some of the area’s most interesting sights, all on your way to the historic Kennedy Compound in Hyannisport.
