GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Boston.
Really really nice clean and well maintained boat with ample room for several passengers, the boat has a great design with a large open flat area in the back with comfortable seating, which provides for great unobstructed views of the harbor and city. Patrick was a pro and delivered exactly as promised. We had a memorable sunset cruise around the harbor and islands.
John is a great captain and he was really flexible and understanding while we figured out our itinerary. It's a great trip around the harbor, good for a bachelor/ette party or even just a few hours out on the water with friends. Plenty of room for 6-10 people on the deck, where there is a place to sit with a cooler for drinks. We spent nearly all our time on the deck, but there is also area below deck to go if you need space. All in all, we had a lot of fun, and Boston at night is particularly beautiful.
The One and Only Just Hangin’🤙 she is the ONLY Holiday Mansion Houseboat cruising Boston Harbor. Be a part of the talk of the Town🤙
Rented for a few hours with family for a milestone birthday. Capt Jimmy, Kyla, Josh and pupper were amazing. So friendly, so helpful, the boat is in great shape, comfortable seating and a great ride around the harbor islands and Boston. Communication was great and we knew where to go and what to expect. 10/10 will be back 🛥
I offer sailing charters on Cal 36 Sailboat. We sail around the islands of the Gold Coast of Boston’s north shore. I will come to Boston ,if I am available on your charter date.
Capt Al was excellent - the boat fit our party of 7 nicely! We enjoyed the sail and talking with him. Communication pre-sail was great. Unfortunately our sail was shortened by an hour because of foggy weather causing us to miss the first hour. Other than that, we were very happy. Hope to be back.
We absolutely had a blast with Captain John and Renee. Miss Norma was incredible, very spacious. We took some friends out who had never been to Boston before and had a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend John and his crew. Will see you again.
Patrick and his boat provided for a most unique view of Boston and the surrounding areas. The boat was well kept, clean, and gave us a smooth and enjoyable ride, and the history of its captain was as interesting and fun to hear about as the history of the city. Sipping on wine watching the sun set over Boston will forever be a cherished moment in our travel memories and we can’t wait to come back and do it again! Until next time. Bon voyage!
