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.

Yacht was a great treat …plenty of shiny wood tables and cushioned seating inside and a nice lounge like set up on outdoor deck. Some private rooms and spaces and good bathrooms! Narration was a little bland but it was quick and enjoyed the rest of the time quietly …posh bar area!

Perfect weather for the harbor cruise - just enough information from the guide and no rambling on and on. Enjoyable and informative. The atmosphere on the boat with other passengers was joyful and laid back. Time schedule was adhered to perfectly. Pick up your paid-ahead tickets at the ticket window ahead of time so that you can get in line to board about 20 minutes before departure for best choice of seating, although both upper and lower decks were very nice. Would go again!

My sons (10 and 13) were bored to tears. Not a lot to see on the cruise, and it was very difficult to hear the announcer speak. The music was too loud, and so you could barely hear him. I had to get up and stand directly under the speaker to hear anything he said. He only spoke about 3 or 4 things though. I would have liked a little more narration. The ride was relaxing and the boat was nice, but I think it was definitely overpriced for the experience. If you go, make sure you get there early to get the best seats on the top deck.
