Edward was a great captain to work with. I booked a boat for two hours for my girlfriends and I after being away from each other for a couple of years. He was attentive and caring, but also made sure to give us the space to enjoy ourselves. We all agreed that this was one of the best experiences we had, and if there’s an opportunity to boat again, I wouldn’t do it with anyone else besides Edward.
Tracy and her husband have a beautiful pontoon boat and are truly professional in all service and with the vessel itself… We had a fabulous time in Boston harbor and really enjoyed the entire experience. Highly recommend.
Daniel and his crew were absolutely incredible. I went on a cruise around Boston Harbor on my wedding day-- it was a blast!!! They were accommodating, kind, helpful, and professional. Daniel even added some white decorations on the end of the boat. He was thoughtful in terms of where we went, photos, and timing. He was a great communicator. I absolutely loved my time on the boat and Daniel was fantastic!! So grateful for this experience and definitely want to go on a cruise with Daniel again!! THANK YOU!!!!
We were a party of 5 and fit very comfortably. Captain David is professional, knowledgeable and have great communication. We had such a fun day cruising in the harbor then floated by one of the island. Had lunch, jumped in the water. Such a fun day! Highly recommend!
We rented Johns boat for my friends bachelorette. It was amazing! We connected our music and he had a cooler with ice for all the beverages. He was so accommodating and communicative. There was a bathroom and seats for everyone. We were able to sit in the sun on the front of the boat and jump off to cool down. The boat was clean and large enough (with room to spare) for the eight of us. Would definitely 100% recommend!
Edward was a great captain, arranged to pick us up at Marina bay instead of Boston which made a huge difference,(lots of traffic). Took us to the most amazing ride, and then after we docked i cut my birthday cake on the boat. The 2 hours seemed like a whole night of fun. We went around Seaport area, pass by the Tallship in East Boston… we left on sunset and came back on the beautiful lights of Boston. Just amazing, loved every minute of it.
