Nice enjoyable cruise. Did not get very close to the USS Consutition to see the flag lowing as advertised. When you turn in your voucher for your ticket be sure to get good directions to the correct docking point. It is a bit confusing

Our party of 4 had a great time on the sunset cruise and our narrator /guide was fantastic! I would recommend this Harbor tour to all interested in a relaxing cruise with the bonus of learning a great deal about the city of Boston.

All good - only slight issue was there was a school trip on our tour and they didn't really care what they were doing on the boat running about up and down the boat - ruined the relaxing part of the cruise for myself and a lot of other people on the boat.

other than that was a nice tour

This was a bit of a disappointment most of which was the fault of the cruise operator. This was billed as a sunset cruise but the starting time was almost 80 minutes before sunset. The boat headed back to the dock at sunset. As a result, there was not much time to see the Boston sky line after dark. Boarding was chaotic with no clear boarding line. We got into what appeared to be the line only to be told by a cruise person to get out of line and go to another boarding platform. Once on the boat we found that seating consisted of folding chairs and, like most cruises, seating was first come first served. After a safety announcement, the cruise wandered along the Boston Waterfront towards the end of the airport runway. The narration, what little of it there was, was almost inaudible. Immediately, people from the lower deck started to block ladders and aisle ways creating safety hazards the crew only made half heated attempts to enforce safety rules. Soon the boat was in fog. It was kind of neat watching jets come out of the fog right over our heads. The last of the cruise was waiting for the sunset cannon to fire from the pier next to the USS Constitution. The boat headed back to the dock right after the cannon fired. So much for a sunset cruise.

Trip took us to outer harbour. Guide Ethan was good but too much time waiting for planes to land overhead! Could have gone further if we weren't there for 20 minutes!
