Boston Harbor Narrated Cruises

Boston Harbor Narrated CruisesIf you are specifically looking for a Boston Harbor Sightseeing boat ride and narrated tour, we have some great ones to offer! Whether you are a local Bostonian that wants to go a few steps beyond the average Boston boat tour or if you are an international tourist that wants to hear about our Boston Harbor sites (forts, light houses, monuments, and iconic buildings) then you have picked the right boat tour. We offer a wide range of Boston sightseeing boat rides and you can choose between a heavily narrated tour or a lightly narrated tour.

Many of our guests like to come out to just relax and hear the wind and waves while taking in the Boston Skyline. Our Boston schooner sailing and our late night Boston cruises are the best for a passive tourism excursion where little to no narration is included but you are able to enjoy some Boston sightseeing.


Boston Harbor Sightseeing Cruise

Winter Harbor Cruise on Northern Lights

Step aboard Northern Lights for a 1.5-hour sightseeing cruise of Boston Harbor. The harbor is full of rich and unique history that will keep your attention throughout the trip. Grab a hot beverage or small bite such as a Cup of New England Clam chowder from the bar. It’s a staple here in Boston, and you can’t have a New England experience without it. Cape Cod author, Joseph C. Lincoln describes clam chowder as,“… a dish to preach about, to chant praises and sing hymns and burn incense before. To fight for. The Battle of Bunker Hill was fought for—or on—clam chowder; part of it at least, I am sure it was. It is as American as the Stars and Stripes, as patriotic as the national Anthem. It is ‘Yankee Doodle in a kettle.'” Sit back, and relax aboard the warm and cozy Northern Lights!
