    Luxury Pontoon Party Boat in Boston Harbor at the Constitution Marina!

    Tracey's private pontoon was perfect for our company outing. We went out on the Charles and got to see some amazing views of Boston that none of us have seen before despite living here for a long time. Mike was a great captain and was helpful when answering all our questions!

    My friends and I had an awesome Saturday morning on Patrick's boat! We are all from the city - it was such a fun and unique way to see the entire Boston waterfront and Harbor Islands! We were able to bring out own snacks and drinks aboard. Patrick was the perfect captain. Totally safe, comfortable ride and we really enjoyed his company. The only problem is that I want to rent Patrick's boat every weekend!

    We did a fun sunset cruise with Patrick. We found the boat easily. Its in immaculate condition, and very comfortable, he took us on a Boston tour, followed by a fast ride to a nearby island where we anchored for some time, before going back to see Boston by night, before lettimg us off at Long Wharf. Highly recommend.
