Know More about this tour

After you board your lunch cruise, have a little time to explore the boat as it pulls away from the dock. The lunch buffet will soon begin, and you can take as little or as much as you’d like from the all-you-can-eat buffet! While you dine, enjoy a narrated look at Boston's breathtaking skyline from the panoramic windows.

After you eat, head to the top deck – the largest outdoor patio deck in town – to catch a breath of fresh air and an amazing view. Or, rock 'til you dock while the DJ plays a variety of music, from line dances to Top 40 hits.

During your cruise, pass by the World Trade Center, the financial hub of Boston. See where the Boston Tea Party took place in 1773, when rebels disguised as Indians dumped tea into the harbor to protest British taxes. Pass by the location of the Boston Massacre, which is now a simple circle of cobblestones that marks the site where five American colonists were killed by British soldiers in 1770. The brutality of this incident helped spark the anti-British rage that ultimately led to the American Revolution.

See the USS Constitution, also known as Old Ironsides, a nickname earned because of her invincibility in battle. Old Ironsides was launched in 1797 and is the oldest, fully commissioned naval vessel in the world. You’ll also see the World War II naval destroyer, the USS Casin Young.

Then see the Tobin Memorial Bridge, erected in 1948-49 and opened to traffic in 1950. It connects the Charlestown section of Boston with Chelsea. Additionally, see Fort Independence and Castle Island. Fort Independence is located at the entrance to Boston Inner Harbor. First settled in 1634, the island features the nation's oldest fully maintained fort.

  • The Spirit of Boston Lunch Cruise was Amazing! Boarding the ship early afforded my wife and daughter and I to find our table first but we went outside on the second level deck for a better view. It was great once we started to sail and we enjoyed a great meal that was available as soon as we were under way. We all agreed that the food was very good and as we finished we noticed a lot of people came out on deck once they finished their meal. So if you want a table outside you should get one when you board the ship. The Boston skyline was also Amazing and to get various perspectives of it as we went around the harbor was fantastic. It was also wonderful to see all of the other ships and sailboats that were out enjoying themselves in the harbor. The cruise also takes a path next to Logan airport so it's an added sight to see the jets take off and land as you're cruising along. While there was jazz playing on the outside speakers there was a DJ inside playing some top 40 and popular dance music and the indoor crowd was dancing up a storm. I feel good about my 5 star rating cause there was something for everyone! Finally, all of the staff were very nice, the drinks while pricy were great, the food was great, and having visited Boston many times I can say this is an unforgettable pleasure!

  • The staff was engaging and professional, the boat was clean but the food was so awful I barely ate a thing. I went to get dessert - as I was starving - and found that there was no more. Staff said there was no more (and said passengers had taken 3 or 4 desserts each). Later, contrary to what I was told, I saw that there was more dessert put out at the buffet. I took a few things but couldn't eat the dessert either as they also tasted horrible and were very dry (perhaps frozen and thawed?). Get it together, folks, on the food quality, quantity and presentation!

  • To view Boston city from water, I would thoroughly recommend this cruise. Throughout the cruise staff provided a commentary about the city and its history. Also, the staff were all friendly and courteous, and provided the entertainment. The lunch was scrumptious ... there was a variety of salads, cold meats, hot dishes and a selection of desserts.
