Great budget tour of the Boston harbor. The sunset cruise brought us to the Navy Yard for sunset to see the USS Constitution fire its cannon. Downsides are limited chairs on the top deck, and we couldn't hear the audio narration of the tour from the top deck. If you want great views, this was the place to be, but I can't speak to the quality of the guide info.
We really enjoyed this sunset cruise! It was relaxing and we got a ton of great pictures. My only real complaint was that they only took cash for the drinks and that they were watered down. I paid 2.25 for a Coke and it was a small cup filled with ice and had little to no soda. Several other passengers were complaining about the same thing. Also they need to add more speakers to hear the guide.

About Massachusetts Bay Lines
During tours with Massachusetts Bay Lines, passengers can watch the sun dip behind the city from the middle of the harbor. Lights flicker on across the skyline, poking holes in the setting darkness and pinpointing each building's location. All the while, the water laps against the side of the boat, providing a soothing soundtrack.
Massachusetts Bay Lines has specialized in stunning views such as these for over 50 years. The family-owned company operates out of Rowes Wharf in downtown Boston, and its fleet includes a total of five unique vessels, instead of just one boat with a different name painted on the side each week. Customers can rent these boats out as private charters, or they can climb aboard for music and group tours of the harbor, which cruise past the 200-year-old USS Constitution and many more of the city's historic sites.
