Fishing in Billerica

Unlike the boats of old, SunPlugged does not chug, it does not whirr, and it does not spout steam. Drawing upon modern technology, this electric boat is powered by the sun using four 200-watt solar panels. It carries up to six passengers out into the waters of Fort Point Channel for daytime or sunset tours, while leaving behind no waste products to harm the environment. Kids can enjoy the silent ride on sponge-fishing expeditions, where they cast a lure that turns into a sponge as it drifts in the water and makes friends with mermaids who haven't bathed in years.

Captain Mike, a Coast Guard?licensed boater, takes singles, pairs, and groups of three onto the water in a boat built in 2011 and checked daily for safety. Parasailers prep for their ascent by strapping into equipment garnered from the world's leading parasail equipment manufacturers. A multicolored parachute then pulls them soaring into the blue firmament for a thrilling ride and views typically only seen while inside a paper airplane. The six different parasailing experiences cater to varying tastes, with the Wet 'n' Wild option guaranteeing a dunk in the water and the Elevator Gone Mad flight promising patrons a quick shot into the air before falling gently back to earth. For another means of taking in the sights, the crew sets up beach-goers with safe, speedy jet skis that can hold up to three passengers.

The Provincetown Fast Ferry runs Thursday through Sunday during July and August. During these summer months, it carries passengers from Plymouth across the bay to Provincetown and back. Adults and kids can enjoy the salty spray from Cape Cod as they chug along during trips that last a little more than an hour. Travelers can also bring along bikes, children younger than aged 4, and fugitive fish free of charge.

Yankee Fleet's knowledgeable naturalists narrate the tour with nuggets of whale wisdom, and on-board whale researchers are available to answer one-on-one questions. While eyes are sure to be filled with majestic sightings of mammalian sea beasts (if you don't see one, your next trip is free), the body's fellow senses won't be forgotten. Passengers may have the opportunity to listen to whale sounds, touch whale artifacts, help capture plankton, analyze water visibility, and measure how far away whales are by counting the seconds between their lightning flashes.
