      Boston harbor and it’s beautiful islands cruise and charter on Miss Norma our 40ft pacemaker yacht

      John was fantastic. Communication was great, pickup was prompt and service was AMAZING. The boat for surpassed my expectations and the itinerary was perfect for my Mom's birthday. 10/10 would recommend John and the Miss Norma to anyone. As a professional private pilot, I'm used to great service and John met that bar/exceeded.

      A truly superb experience!! The boat was easy to find. Patrick had a tray for us to set our snacks, a cooler with ice, and extra blankets. We got to play our music via Bluetooth. For two full hours we cruised around the Boston Harbor getting close to the sights of the seaport and then seeing the city from a distance. Patrick was friendly and easy to talk to, but we also had lots of time to celebrate our anniversary without needing to make small talk. We recommend to anyone!

      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.

      Boston harbor and it’s beautiful islands cruise and charter on Miss Norma our 40ft pacemaker yacht

      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.

      Great cruise with John! I booked a two hour cruise for a bachelorette party - he was communicative, accommodating, and a great host! Highly recommend!

      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 🛥
