Cape Cod Fish Share strives to minimize the fathoms between seafood lovers and the ocean, delivering fresh, line-caught seafood from boats to homes as quickly as possible. The group, which considers itself a community-supported fishery, gets its fish from local fishermen who embrace sustainable practices?including ones based out of Chatham, Provincetown, Hyannis, Martha?s Vineyard, New Bedford, Falmouth, Sandwich, Nantucket, and Fairhaven.

These shares supply customers with at least two different species of fish per week, usually some common fish as well as, for the sake of variety, some unusual and seasonal species. Deliveries might include Atlantic cod, grey sole, lobster, monkfish, sea scallops, ancient 50-foot kraken, or yellowfin tuna?but the contents ultimately depend upon what can be purchased directly off the boats on the day in question.

After workers fillet the seafood directly on the pier, they meticulously clean and pack it so that, upon reaching customers' homes, it can immediately hit the frying pan or the freezer. To help with keeping things fresh, Cape Cod Fish Share's recipe blog provides numerous ideas on how to prepare the fish.

After starting in 2006 with a single 17-foot Boston Whaler, All Cape Boat Rentals’ owners knew they needed to expand their fleet. In the seven years since then, they’ve welcomed 11 new Whalers to their watercraft family, which now includes boats ranging from 16–25 feet in length. They rent out their vessels to wayfarers of all stripes, from the weekender looking for a one-hour joyride to the salty veteran in search of a full-season rental. The boats can journey as far out as Lewis Bay for a sighting of the three-hour lifespan of the Egg Island sandbar, or stay close to home in Hyannis Harbor with a stop at Baxter’s Boathouse. For an extra fee, clients can attach a line and pair of skis or an inner tube, or use one of the boat’s rod holders to comb the waves for tuna or mackerel. In addition to its stable of Whalers, All Cape Boat Rentals also maintains a fleet of Yamaha WaveRunner VX Sports for riders who want to conquer the surf through sheer power.

There might be no better way of bonding with your friends and family than paintball, other than tricking them all into taking a superglue bath together. At Balls to the Wall, paintball groups learn to work together to defeat the enemy during games that take place in an indoor arena. The same facility also hosts laser tag in a black-lit, fog-filled labyrinth, as well as an all-weather skatepark made possible thanks to temperature control.

Stretching across immaculate greenery and pristine waters that run alongside Cape Cod’s Melody Tent, Twin Brooks Golf Course’s 18-hole, par 3 layout is a treat for players of all abilities. Only one hole exceeds 200 yards in length on the par 54 course, though the design still manages to fit in plenty of obstacles, including five ponds and 36 strategically placed sand traps, each one filled to the lip with soft Cape sand and disoriented sunbathers. Players who have stepped into the tee box recently may have noticed a difference: the teeing grounds have all been leveled, reshaped, and covered with new turf. The improvement is just one of many the course has undertaken in the last several months. Others include repairing the cart paths, upgrading the landscaping with railroad ties and new plantings, and reshaping the tree line along the fairways to make the course feel more open and remove potential obstructions. Players can expect a round to take between two and three hours, and Twin Brooks offers both pull carts and gas-powered carts for an additional fee.
