Boat Cruise to view the Milky Way Galaxy!

10 Town Wharf

Join us on this awesome cruise with amazing views of the Milky Way Galaxy and many meteors! Other groups are attending so get your seat while you can. Come enjoy the stars as your on board astronomer guides you through the constellations and stars with a laser pointer on the top deck of the boat! We travel out into the middle of Cape Cod Bay where the skies are as dark as rural Vermont and the stars and Milky Way Galaxy are amazing! You will literally see thousands of more stars than you can on land. The large ferry size boat comes to a stop and we all gather on the top deck and your on board astronomer then traces out all the constellations with a laser and discusses many interested topics. Come join us for an amazing night under the stars! The Milky Way Galaxy can be seen with some remarkable detail in the middle of Cape Cod Bay. Come check it out! Arrive by 8:30 pm to start boarding. The cruise leaves at 9 pm and returns at midnight. The boat has a bar and food for sale. The cost is $60 per person, payable when boarding, cash only. Thanks! ~Mark
