This was an amazing cruise around Gloucester, Rockport, Ipswich - we saw it all. The scenery was breathtaking. Patrick was very informative and entertaining. This was a great value and we would do it again in a heartbeat. I would definitely recommend reservations - our boat was full. They do not take credit cards (cash or check). There is plenty of parking, but be sure to take quarters for the meters.

A cold and windy weekend in Gloucester, but that eased enough to carry out our plan to go on the boat tour. We enjoyed the trip very much. Very interesting and entertaining. Great to see Gloucester from offshore.

What a fantastic way to get to the Rocky Neck Art Colony in Gloucester MA. Park in downtown Gloucester MA – tour the scenic Gloucester Harbor taking the 20-minute ride around the harbor and ending up at the Art Colony on Rocky Neck. Really makes an impression on visitors you're sightseeing with!

We wanted to see the harbor and this was the best and cheapest way to do it. Captain was very entertaining! Thank you for a nice ride and sharing cool little facts!

My husband & I, local folks, took a delightful Lighthouse Tour on Sept. 1 aboard the King Eider! We loved: the sparkling sapphire-colored ocean, gentle warm breezes, viewing a diverse collection of other watercraft also taking in the splendors of Cape Ann, the iconic lighthouses & other scenic landmarks. Capt. Steve Douglass presented fascinating commentary, at times even witty. His partner for the afternoon, Patrick, provided a friendly & helpful addition to the passengers aboard the rugged, comfortable boat. What a great recommended way to spend an idyllic summer afternoon! Can't wait to do it again in 2013!
