      Your Boston Harbor Experience with Captain David

      Our cruise around the harbor with Captain David was incredible. His boat is clean, he offered great and interesting facts and made sure we got to see the sunset over Boston at the perfect time. He was so accommodating with our pick up and our drop off. When we come back for a visit, we will surely book with Captain David again. I wish I could give a rating higher than five stars!

      26ft Classic Passenger boat for Charter! Up to 12 passengers!!

      10/10 would recommend! Tony was such a great captain and was so accommodating with drop off and pick up locations. The 2 hour trip was so worth the money and cheaper compared to other options in the area. It was also great to have the BYOB option. Great trip!

      we had a great Sunday morning cruise a round Boston. David has a tremendous amount of knowledge of boating and the local area. I highly recommend him for your fishing or pleasure trip.
