A very relaxing way to learn some Boston history. If you want windy and the best overall view try to be close to first in line and go to the top deck. The views on the middle deck are still good but some are obstructed.

An enjoyable one hour cruise around the whole of Boston’s waterfront. Excellent narration and we learned a lot about the city’s history.

Liz was very knowledgeable and informative during our trip. She pointed out places of interest and gave great historical details.

Tour guide Kevin was great. I was happy to learn about the area. Parking was an issue.

Very fun cruise, so much to see. Mike was a great narrator
