Red Tail is also available for charter for up to six people for "that special trip" for sightseeing around the Island, transportation to the mainland or Nantucket, or anything else you might want to do by boat. Menemsha is only a short boat ride from some of the most beautiful scenery Martha's Vineyard has to offer -- the colorful clay cliffs of Gay Head (Aquinnah) and the unspoiled Elizabeth Islands.

Falmouth inner harbor is about 30-35 minutes for expeditions to the mainland without being tied to the Steamship Authority ferry and the summer crowds.  New Bedford is 45 minutes to an hour, while Nantucket is 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Charter rates for cruising are based on time and distance. Normally the first hour will be $250 and each additional hour is $150.

Whale watching is great east of Catham.
