I brought a group with me, and we all enjoyed the harbor tour very much. The captain's narrative was very informative. The narration lasted for about half of the ride, and the rest was just to relax and enjoy. Recommended!

The crew was friendly, the weather perfect, and the commentary was very informative! There are snacks and soft drinks as well as beer and wine available on the boat.

Having been on numerous harbor tours, we were extremely disappointed in this anemic excursion. Our 5 PM hour cruise was actually 45 minutes. The captain’s tour guide lecture was, at most, 20 minutes. This tour did not do Newburyport justice. So little was described about...More
