    Great treat for my grandson...beautiful cruise..Kevin and crew were wonderful hosts and made the night very special
    Best view of Boston
    , Oct 2021
    Magnificent way to see Boston. We took a sunset tour, and even though the skies were overcast, being out on the water on a sailing ship as sunset thickened into night was gorgeous. The tour was full, but did not seem overcrowded. The captain and crew were hilarious as well as masterful at their business. I think everyone was enchanted. Our family (parents and 13 year old) certainly was.

    He was awesome as a guide. Really enjoyed the tour and stories. He had pictures and stories at every stop.
    Amazing cruise

    We had an amazing cruise and would do it again in a heart beat. Our captain and crew were awesome and the shoreline was beautiful
    Nice boat and crew, but overcrowded
    , Sep 2021
    Captain and crew were great, you could tell they knew what they were doing. We felt they were too many people on the boat. Most of the time was spent trying to find a suitable place to relax. Other than that, would recommend
    Fun cruise
    , Sep 2021
    Such a nice way to see the city! A relaxing perspective on a busy city, seeing it from the water gives a totally different look and feel to Boston. The crew was very fun and courteous, and shared lots of fun information about the harbor. Highly recommend this!
    Captain looks cool! But I...

    Captain looks cool! But I like sailing farther away from the harbour, so that we can see different scenery instead of just watching the night scene of the city around the harbour.
    Lovely cruise
    , Sep 2021
    Perfect weather, as advertised, you won’t be disappointed! Boston harbor is cool with flights over head, beautiful views of downtown, had dinner at Legal seafoods after at the dock, also excellent.
    Great sunset trip
    , Sep 2021
    Absolutely wonderful trip. We had a great crew & the Captain was very personable. Would absolutely recommend this to everyone
    Horrible customer service
