I belong to a group of retired teachers and we go on a day trip once a month. September was the Plymouth paddle boat tour. Thirteen of us went, some from an hour away. We waited and waited and no one ever showed up to give the tour. There were no signs on the window where we would pay. The... More

The boat did not go out at the scheduled time or any time during the day. It was a gorgeous day and weather was not an issue. There was no way to contact the cruise line either by phone or by email to find information. Many people at the dock were disappointed and confused.

One the way out, the ship provides narration on he harbor and the history of the area. On the way back you can... More

After living in Plymouth for several years and seeing the Belle, we decided to take a cruise on her. It was a pleasant trip, just over an hour long. Our cruise had only about 15 - 20 people on it, so there was plenty of room to move about. Was great to see parts of Plymouth that we normally don't... More

We just wanted a short boat ride so this filled the bill. There were only a dozen or so people on our cruise so it was easy to move around if you wanted to take pictures. The captain did the narration of different things you could see as we pulled away from the dock. We went out as far as... More

My wife and I spent a nice June weekend in Plymouth. The weather was perfect so we decided to take this cruise. Not sure why, but we were the only two people on the cruise. The captain was friendly and the crew were helpful. I learned a lot of new information about the history of Plymouth and the Mayflower. Glad... More

Had a really great time for part of my bachelorette in Plymouth. Captain let me "steer" the boat and wear a captain's hat. Honestly, we had already drank on the beach for 3 hours and did a brewery tour so almost anything was fun at this point. It turned into an hour of reenacting Titanic scenes and who doesn't need...

We live in the area and didn't expect much from this tour, but took out grandchild as she wanted to get on the water. It was a very pleasant way to circle the bay -nothing more, nothing less.

Don't waste your money. $20 to go on a boat ride....in a circle. So i thought our tour guide (Captain) was boring, but hey.....a 20-30 min recorded narration wasn't far behind. He stopped the recording because we were going too slow, we were going "against the current" so he had to stop it then replay it 5 min before it... More
