Amazing!
Amazing cruise! We got there pretty early so we would have time to chill but man, it was sooooo cold while waiting for it to depart! When we got out on the water it felt pretty good but definitely bring a jacket because it was almost unbearable how cold & windy that area is ! Haha. We loved every bit of the cruise though. You get to see the US constitution “shoot” a canon with the bunker hill monument in the back ground.

Sunset cruise with plenty of opportunities for pictures
Great view of the city and the US Constitution. We enjoyed seeing the sunset cannon fire. The captain was knowledgeable of the harbor and the city. Lots of outdoor seating with inside options available too.

Economical and friendly choice for a sunset cruise
Lovely ride, narration was helpful and entertaining, and easy to find location…. Not the nicest boat - definitely get what you pay for there. But a decent, economic choice

The view was gorgeous and smooth which was perfect for my mother who gets seasick. The captain was also very friendly and gave some history over the speaker.

Great evening tour of the harbor
Jun 2021
This was a great way to end a fun filled day in Boston. I would highly recommend.

Other than the annoying people who were constantly standing in front of us taking pictures and would not sit down, the cruise was great. I would suggest having an area where narcissists can stand for 30 minutes to take multiple selfies instead of having them take their 30 minute photo shoots in front of the other passengers. This was not the fault of the tour operator. People have just become inherently rude and disrespectful and self absorbed.

At the end, we got to see and hear the USS Constitution close for the evening with the firing of the canon. Loved it!

We are sorry we inconvenienced you. The active calendar did not have your cruise date on it and we missed the Viator reservation that was made. We apologize.

Lovely way to spend the evening
Jun 2021 • Family
The Boston Harbor sunset cruise was amazing. My kids loved being on the ship, the guide described the buildings and some of the historical facts. The sunset was gorgeous. The boats are old but that did not take away from the experience. However parking was expensive $40 for the parking structure which was all we could find.

Very disorganized ticket agent.
Aug 2019 • Couples
The tour was very nice. Beautiful sunset with lots of photo opportunities!! Would definitely recommend! On the other hand, MAKE SURE YOU ORDER TICKETS ONLINE EVEN IF YOU HAVE A GROUPON. We had a groupon and talked to Diane at the ticket counter. She was very nice and got us on the list and told us to come back 45 min before the cruise. We did and she said she had no more tickets even after we paid and watched her sell more tickets to other customers. After waiting in line to talk to her again, she said someone already checked in under our names. After showing our ID and trying to explain the situation that SHE dealt with us, she finally gave us tickets. Needless to say, the experience was very frustrating.
