We booked the Saturday 7/19 9:30AM cruise a few days in advance and had no trouble getting ticketed and boarding the boat. There was ample seating on the first and second decks. However, several people moved downstairs once we were underway as the air temperature over the water and the wind from the 30+ MPH speed of the boat chilled... More

After walking the Freedom Trail the day before, it was nice to take a relaxing 90 minute cruise of the Boston Harbor. The tickets can be purchased at the harbor and the cruises leave at 11, 1, or 3. Pick your time and enjoy the beautiful views from the boat of Boston. Your guide will give a narrated tour of... More

The cruise was good as it took us out into the harbour and major historical things were pointed out, but sadly our guide was a young girl with limited knowledge or experience. I would have liked to have heard more accurate historical details and I would recommend a recorded narration would solve this problem.

We took a sunset harbor cruise on the "Lexington" ship. This was a very nice way to spend the night gazing at the city lights. There were alcoholic beverages sold on board and table clothed tables set up for patrons. I would say that the majority of the cruise was made up of couples, but there were a few small... More

I took this tour as part of the GoBoston Card. I highly recommend going this route if you and your group will do more than 3 or 4 attractions. Most of the things on the GoBoston are a hassle to make reservations and get lined up. The USS Constitution cruise was the easiest thing we did. Show up in a... More

More people than there were seats and a hour and a half cruise should not be SRO. Has some great views but could see these with the free harbor cruise that comes with any trolly tour. Was excited to see and photo the shooting of the the cannon at the Constitution at sunset. Right after the speaker stated "we have... More

Well, while it was supposed to be a surprise for my Honey, it was also a surprise for me. I will start with the good part…we didn’t sink!!! Now, I will talk a little bit about the ‘not-so-good.’ We waited over 30-minutes to board and if it weren’t for a brave soul testing the waters, we would still be waiting... More

We went on the Turnaround Cruise on the Fourth of July. It was a great sight to see the USS Constitution sail out into the harbor with the fireboats and police boats riding along. We let the Constitution sail in front of out boat and then we followed. We got on board our boat about 10:00 am. There were some... More

My wife and I went on the sunset cruise which was phenomenal. We went around Boston Harbor while the tour guide narrated almost the entire time. The history was great and the view was priceless. The ship parked right in front of the USS Constitution as it fired off its sunset cannon and lowered the flag which was breathtaking. The... More
