Arrived late and they reschedule to later time no extra cost. Beautiful views Canon fire from uss constitution. Thank you great service Angelica


Cruise got canceled, was very disappointed. Only received one call regarding the cancellation. We are on vacation and it would’ve been nice to receive the call earlier so we could’ve planned with another company. Are stay in Boston wasn’t going to be long enough to reschedule for a different date.


Seeing the city from the water was incredible. Beautiful ship, excellent staff and even made new friends visiting from Ireland!


Great day to go, we had very unusual weather 60. We had a great time the guide was very informative. The views are really great. The traffic in Boston is the only problem. But what else is new.


The staff was kind and experienced. They were open to questions and left space to experience the trip


Very relaxed tour of the bay. Captain was knowledgeable about the area but did not talk constantly allowing passengers to enjoy the sights. Able to take elderly parents along with mobility issues. Staff accommodating and they enjoyed the cruise on the first deck which was enclosed.


Narration of the history and Boston districts was educational. Chilly day but fun experience. Snacks and my beer were relaxing while taking in the Boston sights.


Great tour of Boston's harbour, and a nice narrative from the captain. Informative and interesting without a constant flow of chatter. Boat was comfortable and ship-shape with helpful and pleasant crew. Well worth the price. Would recommend


The crew was so nice and the sightseeing was great. We brought family who were visiting and they loved it especially because you could get a great view of planes landing at the airport which was cool. The Captain did a great job narrating the tour and I learned a lot I didn’t know about Boston!

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Was great to see the sites from a different perspective from the water. It did rain some during the tour but can’t change that. At least the lower deck is enclosed to stay dry. Staff was wonderful
