This was a fun way to get a tour of the harbor. The crew was very knowledgeable, informative and funny!

Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and very informative. We also sailed with less than a full compliment of passengers and got special treatment.

Family outing with travelers from Toronto. Tour guide sounded out of breath the entire cruise but managed to gasp his way through the tour. Glad we opted for a guided tour so that we could focus on the skyline and highlights of the harbor. Ship...More

T he staff is really friendly and you get plenty of tickets for beer for a cheap price! It was such a cool and different experience than just going to another bar.

It was a nice cruise. I had fun with my teen aged son. I was a bit scared because the captain seemed to be out of breath and could barely speak to narrate the cruise.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
