Lobster Roll Cruises

Lunch, Dinner and Sunset cruises depart from Sesuit Harbor, Dennis, located just over the Brewster/Dennis border on 6A. A Best of Cape Cod Life winner. Delicious and fun!

You might prefer to find the food yourself. The low-tide Brewster flats of Cape Cod Bay are loaded with shellfish. It’s fun finding them and preparing them for a meal back at the cottage. That’s just Cape Cod authentic!
