Owner description: Captain your own mini speedboat as you navigate Boston Harbor while following our knowledgeable instructor. During your excursion you’ll pass many historical sites such as; the Tea Party Ship and Museum, USS Constitution, Nantucket Light Ship, JFK Library, Fort Independence and many more harbor sites. The adventure starts out nice and slow, this will give you time to get familiar with the boat and its operation. Once we pass the no wake zone, it’s time to pick up the speed and have some FUN as we navigate our way to JFK library, Fort Independence and pass many small islands. On the return, we’ll once again enter the no wake zone and view the Nantucket Light Ship, USS Constitution, Charlestown Navy Yard and Boston’s iconic Zakim Bridge. It’s the most unique way to see Boston…it’s PURE FUN! Bring your camera and cherish the memories. We have a limited number of boats for each adventure, don’t miss out…reserve your boat soon.

“Great way to see Boston Harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

My son and I were in Boston for 24 hours. Crammed as much as we could in to our brief stay. Spending an hour and a half on the water was really fun. He wasn't old enough to drive (12) but had a blast none the less. For the size of the boat I can't imagine wanting to go any faster than their motors can take them. The place is well staffed and very professional. You might get a bit wet and/or sunburned, keep that in mind. Great experience.

“Boston Mini Speed Boats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Fantastic day out with my kids. The best way to see Boston from the Harbor, learn about the history, see the sights and have a whole load of fun. You get to drive your own boat and as fast as you dare once you're out of the restricted speed area in the outer Harbor. The kids (ages 7, 7 & 9) had one of the most enjoyable and fun experiences they can remember. Highly recommended!

“Such a fun tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The mini speed boats are great....a great way to see some sights that you don't or can't see as well from land. It is also pure fun! Highly recommended, but try to go on a good weather day. I have gone twice this summer and one tour was caught short due to fog. They want to keep you safe - for that and your own enjoyment, try to go on a great weather day. It is totally worth it!

“BEST WAY TO SEE THE HARBOR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

These are real mini 30 HP speedboats that are easy & fun to drive. Jason was our guide ( who is the best guide!), we followed him and listened by walkie talkie to his guided tour of the Harbor. Once out of the No Wake Area, you can let the boats rip as fas as you can go, maybe 20 plus mph. Great view of the city from the water. Will do it again!

“Ready, Set, Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This Boston adventure will not disappoint. These mini boats can cruise and provide for a sweet adrenaline rush should you want it. I went with a group from work one beautiful afternoon and everyone loved it.
