    Boston Harbor Tours with Captain David

    Captain Dave is so great! We were in a bind trying to get out to Lovells Island, since the inter-island ferry is closed due to the pandemic. I found Capt Dave and his vessel online, and he made the process so easy. He was super quick responding to all of my questions, the booking process was smooth, and everything on our island day went off without a hitch. Dave is personable, knowledgeable, and is clearly passionate about his work. We're already planning a 2nd harbor island excursion with him!

    NEWPORT JAZZ & FOLK FEST SWIM AND PICNIC BOAT

    I’m so glad I booked with these two! They were so accommodating with both social distancing guidelines and just generally making us feel comfortable. They had waters, a cooler with ice, and a Bluetooth radio for us to use. We went on a tour of the harbor area and then they took us to a spot where we could swim or go cliff jumping. Would absolutely recommend and will book again!

When the sun was setting he made sure to position the boat to get the perfect picture of us! We parked at the restaurant where we were having dinner after and walked to the dock to take off and when the boat tour was completed he brought us right to the restaurant for our reservations. Absolutely perfect night! Thank you Wayne🙏🏼🌊❤️🛥

    4 or 8 Hour Sails on Narragansett Bay on Seafarer Swiftsure Yacht!

    Joe is an amazing sailor- he does not only take you out there in the water to sail but he also teaches you everything about his boat and how to operate it. He showed us around and picked us up closer to where we stayed instead of driving up to where he is. A very nice gentleman. You would always see him smile which is a very nice gesture.

    This was an exceptional experience from start to finish. The boat is beautiful, and Bob took us to great spots to soak up Boston and enjoy the day. I highly recommend to anyone celebrating a special occasion, or just looking to enjoy the Boston skyline from the best seat around.
