    Boston Harbor Tours with Captain David

    Because of Covid the boat felt a little too cramped for four guests, but we got exactly what we asked for - a nice harbor tour in the late summer afternoon. Recommended.

    Highly recommend! Both Bob (Captain) and Cara (Crew member) were very professional. Our group rented the boat for a friend's bachelorette party, and we had a great time. Had plenty of time to use the jet ski and do the golf challenged, and enjoyed the ride around the Boston Harbor. The cabin was so clean and very spacious. Great boat trip for the day!!

    Captain Bob and Crew Kara were fantastic from beginning to end. We celebrated a 30th birthday with a small group of friends. The boat was so spacious, Jet ski was the best part. Bob and Kara made sure we had so much fun and stayed safe. We ran into small spirts of rain and Bob did his best to run us away from it. We anchored in cove for swimming and lounging, the last hour Bob took us around for nice views of airplanes and Boston skyline.
