Full description
Enjoy a 2-hour experience (15-minute pre-boarding) in Boston Harbor. Step aboard the classic Northern Lights yacht, a coast guard certified vessel with an extremely friendly and knowledgeable captain and crew. The motor yacht Northern Lights is stylized after the classic New England 1920s style steamships. Sit back and relax in a climate controlled (with heating and air-conditioning) cabin, or enjoy the sea breeze on the open top deck. Be sure to visit a fully stocked bar on the main deck to purchase refreshments by credit card, to sip refreshing drinks as you cruise along the harbor. The Northern Lights yacht is one of the most comfortable and versatile cruise vessels in Boston Harbor, at 115 feet in length it features six bathrooms and provides ample seating throughout the ship for up to 149 passengers.

    Fun evening

    Great time on the water, fun to see the various sites up and down, especially near the airport and also the sunset / cannon. Could have been a bit more info and not sure why we waited half an hour to leave but the bar was welcome for the last half hour when after the sun had set fully !

    It was a great time. The commentary was informative, funny and not constant, only pointing out the highlights. We truly enjoyed it, and we interacted with some of the other passenger which made it even better. I would highly recommend. (Bring your credit card though, they do not accept cash)

    Very comfortable, great commentary of Boston Land marks and relaxing

    I booked the cruise last minute and was happy to find an opening on a Friday. The cruise is warm indoors with plenty of windows to view the sights. The Captain gave a great commentary of the historic landmarks and the US constitution firing the canon was awesome. It was a fun family trip. We will be doing this again.
