GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Massachusetts.
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!
Patrick was an amazing captain accomodating our last minute request for a boat ride! He took us on a harbor tour providing interesting and valuable information about the sites, and took us to Spectacle Island for a swim. Thanks Patrick! Highly recommend :)

Cannot recommend this boat and crew enough! Steve, Bec, and Chris did a fabulous job and delivered on a perfect day. From sailing around Newport down to the delicious lobster rolls. Steve and Bec are great owners and Chris made sure we were all taken care of. We will definitely be back! Thanks again.
This boat had everything we could have needed and wanted for the perfect night of sightseeing. Not only was the boat perfect, but John was so friendly and accommodating to everyone in our party. He made sure our experience was perfect. We all had a blast and can’t wait to book with John again!
Great trip! Steve and Bec were great hosts and we loved their little furry co-captain Ellie (the cutest and sweetest pup) We had a romantic sunset cruise and our hosts provided a great atmosphere, interesting history about Newport, took lots of great pictures and kept the drinks flowing! We were celebrating a birthday and the experience was perfect. In terms of two people to take us out, Steve and Bec were the perfect couple to enjoy an evening sailing with.
