lots of fun! Get to the meeting place early because a long line will form. The first in line will get the best spots on the boat. The guide (Holly) was fantastic. The boat had a cash bar! Would absolutely do again and recommend to anyone visiting Boston.

This was a wonderful and informative cruise! When we arrived it was hazy and overcast. By the time we got on the boat the sky was clear and it was a beautiful sunset. The guide was very knowledgeable and the tour around Boston Harbor was fantastic! The firing of the USS Constitution was amazing, my kids loved seeing that. Highly recommend this cruise when visiting Boston.

This was a very nice and relaxing cruise around the harbour. It allows you to see the skyline and other sites that you may not visit on foot. We even got to see the canon fired from an old ship at sunset. The tour guide was also very informative providing information about the sights that we were passing.
