Experience the autumn in a brand new way.

Come along on an amazing aerial journey with DayTrippers, as they circle the sky to witness the beautiful cranberry harvest on the South Shore of Massachusetts. Oftentimes, vibrant, shimmering bogs are hidden behind trees in remote locations. But, the "Cranberry Harvest and Fall Foliage Tour" offered by Ryan Rotors in Plymouth provides a bird's eye view that is educational and spectacular. 

Massachusetts is one of the nation's top producers of this tart fruit, first introduced to the Pilgrims by the Native Americans in the 1600's. Now, with 14, 000 acres of working bogs, the intense, laborious eight week harvest means big business for the South Shore and Cape Cod. 

Ryan Rotors will be offering private tours through the end of October and is also giving the public shorter, more affordable glimpses of the bogs at Edaville USA's Cranberry Festival on October 20th and 21st.


For more information about the tour, check out Ryan Rotors' website.  Also, read more details about the harvest, courtesy of the Cape Cod Cranberry Grower's Association.
