It was a beautiful night and a great way to see the Boston skyline at sunset. The bartenders were generous and the captain was friendly and knowledgeable. Great experience! Highly recommend.

It was very informative. The bartender took good care of me with the cognac. I’ll be back. Thanks

I really enjoyed this cruise, and even though it was a rainy night, I had a good time.

We loved the DJ and the free tea. A little traumatized by the canon but that’s okay.

Relaxing and scenic, and the crew was knowledgeable and accommodating.
