Beautiful sunset cruise of the harbor
Donna_M, Aug 2022
Great tour guide. Explained and described the history of the buildings and harbor. The bar crew were quick and friendly. The boat ride was smooth and relaxing
Worst sunset harbor cruise
Boyd_O, Aug 2022
The sound from the speakers was extremely poor. Standing directly below a speaker was the only possible position to catch any information. The loop of the journey was basically a short ride to the airport and sea ports - not much to see. The regulars seemed like they had the best plan, stand in the back and drink.

We couldn't hear the narrator on the front of the boat. Would have been more enjoyable if we could have. We could hear the narrator from another boat clearly

Average sunset cruise
ariellalabell, Jul 2022
Great weather and view. Downsides — very small seating area outside on top deck — we stood. Also, narrator was very hard to hear — volume too quiet.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
The top deck is definitely the most popular. There is also seating on the outside of the second deck all the way around the vessel. I will inform the captain the volume needs to be turned up on the third deck. Thank you for bringing that to our attention.
Great times
Joyce_T, Jul 2022
The crew were very nice and knowledgeable. The scenery was beautiful and I learned a lot about Boston!
Handel_G, Jul 2022
Seeing the USS Constitution, and hearing the firing of the battery. Excellent Historical commentary on the Boston area. Cleanliness of craft (The Freedom), and friendliness of the crew.
So not waste your time
Janet_m, Jul 2022
Boat was old needed to be updated. Could not hear the captain talking Did not really see anything Just a very slow ride
Response from Host, Jul 2022
I am sorry you did not enjoy your experience. The tour of the Harbor and the sunset cannon at the USS constitution are highlights of our tour. Please call the office so we can speak about this further. We want our tours to be enjoyed, not disappointing. 617 542 8000. What date did you take the cruise?
Carolyn_R, Jul 2022
The views of Boston. One tip would be to put more chairs out at the top of the boat and air into the bathrooms.

Actual trip was very good...
Angela_B, Jul 2022
Actual trip was very good with commentary But didn’t see much as one particular large family pushed there way through to see everything and no one was stopping them or checking on protocols. Ruined trip on our half
Stunning views/ Great Value
Aarica_G, Jul 2022
Absolutely stunning views! Great value for your money. I would recommend for friends or couples. I brought a group of high school students who..did get a little bored.. but C’est la vie. The history over the speakers was very informative and the crew was friendly.
Awesome Harbor Excursion
Greg_S, Jul 2022
The Sunset Cruise on our first night of our visit was very enjoyable! Great views of the Boston Harbor and Boston city skyline. We were thankful for the historical information provided since we had never been to the area prior. An exciting introduction to a great city!
Fantastic Boston Harbor tour!
JeffandKathy_M, Jul 2022
Informative tour, captain shared about all shoreline sites. Prompt and courteous service. Evening was beautiful and timed so we heard the U.S.S Constitution cannon at sunset!
