A Harbor Crusie is a lovely way to get a sense of Boston's history and the variety that Boston offers in a relatively small space. The boats are sturdy craft with cover in case of inclement weather so conditions will be comfortable. The cruise gives you a sense of the metropolis of today as well as the maritime city of the past.

A one-hour harbor cruise is a great choice for anyone new to the city or a local resident who wants to see things from a different perspective.

Overall a great way to spend time with family and enjoy the sites of Boston from the harbor! Nice size boat with plenty of room to get around without feeling congested. The girl giving the narrative was great and was easy to hear and follow. All of the employees were very nice and helpful. Some of us enjoyed a beverage while cruising. Towards the end of the tour they played entertaining music.

It was a very relaxing boat ride in the harbor. However, it was adverted as a harbor sightseeing tour. We were on the boat for 25 minutes before they started narration of the Boston Harbor. That narrative lasted maybe 4 minutes and was extremely hard to hear what was being said. We even moved downstairs thinking we’d hear better but no such luck. The view and boat ride were very relaxing so if that is what your looking for it’s awesome. But if you’re looking for a tour that narrators the history/highlight of the harbor I recommend trying a different tour.

There was a lot of space and not too many people.
The views were magnificent I got to see a part of the Boston area that I never see.

The perfect Fall activity with visiting family! Huge turn out so they upgraded us to the larger boat - I think it was great and made it more comfortable given the large crowd on a holiday weekend! Great Narrator - Really Enjoyed it!

Took the 90 min sail, it was just what we were looking for. Relaxing cruise on a nice sailboat. Everything was ontime and the 90 mins were maximized. Also decent selection of drinks available. Boat was clean.

This is a really good tour waterside. The boat is very clean and comfortable. Whether you stay in the lounge or go on deck the views are unobstructed. A bar is available.

The route is the right duration and takes in all the main points of interest.

The commentary is helpful and well presented with friendly staff.

Strongly recommended to view the city from the water.

Another 5 star review well-deserved.
The narrator must be sick of saying the same thing over and over again, but it didn't show and that was why we gave him a tip - something we Brits avoid!
