Full description

Boston Harbor is home to 34 islands and nearly every island has a story to tell. From its fortifications and hauntings to lighthouses and wildlife sanctuaries, the harbor is full of rich and unique history that will keep your attention throughout the trip.  Notable things to see include the Old North Church, Bunker Hill Monument, USS Cassin Young, the USS Constitution, Fort Independence, Boston's Seaport District, and Spectacle Island. The motor yacht's design was inspired by classic New England 1920s style steamships. She is one of the most comfortable and versatile cruise vessels in the Boston Harbor. She is 115-feet in length, features six bathrooms and provides ample seating throughout the ship. She is built for taking groups of people on spectacular sightseeing adventures. Thus, she is excellent for taking out groups of friends and family to see the harbor. Sit back and relax in the climate-controlled cabin or enjoy the sea breeze on the open top deck. During your harbor cruise, the captain will provide narration and the crew will be around to assist in making your trip more comfortable. Be sure to visit the fully stocked bar on the main deck to purchase refreshments.

The staff were very helpful with my husband who arrived in a wheelchair. We were able to ascend to the upper deck and swap sides according to where the sun was. And also of course in tune with the excellent dialogue and explanation of the various buildings and wharves. Very informative and well worth while. Loved being at sea and seeing Boston from a completely different viewpoint

We booked the cruise for my mom's 86th birthday. The boat was beautifully maintained and clean. The commentary was good. We all enjoyed it. I would highly recommend. Easy to book, easy to find and board. $18 parking on the weekend in the garage right at the dock.

Very friendly staff both on shore and on ship. Comfortable seating in open air and in enclosed cabin. The itinerary took us out past active docks and several harbor islands while the guide gave their histories. Then we turned back to the inner harbor to cruise past the Charlestown Naval Yard, where Old Ironsides is berthed, North Church, and the mouths of the Charles River and Mystic River. The city skyline, Zakim Memorial Bridge, and Boston airport were interesting views as well.
