Full description
Enjoy a 2-hour experience (1.5-hour cruise with a 30-minute pre-boarding) in Boston Harbor. Step aboard the classic Northern Lights yacht, a coast guard certified vessel with an extremely friendly and knowledgeable captain and crew. The motor yacht Northern Lights is stylized after the classic New England 1920s style steamships.

Sit back and relax in a climate controlled (with heating and air-conditioning) cabin, or enjoy the sea breeze on the open top deck. Be sure to visit a fully stocked bar on the main deck to purchase refreshments by credit card, to sip refreshing drinks as you cruise along the harbor.

The Northern Lights yacht is one of the most comfortable and versatile cruise vessels in Boston Harbor, at 115 feet in length it features six bathrooms and provides ample seating throughout the ship for up to 149 passengers. Built for taking groups of people on spectacular sightseeing adventures, she is the perfect vessel for taking groups of friends and family out to see the harbor.
