City Lights Sails/Cruises

Browse By City Lights Cruises We think a Boston sunset cruise aboard a boat is pretty romantic, but what is even more romantic and relaxing is our City Lights Sail and Cruise on one of our yachts. This Boston Harbor Cruise is the perfect date idea for a night out on the town.  On our sailboat we raise the sails and turn off the engines and hand you a glass of beer or wine. Ask the crew for a blanket and cozy up to your loved one for a truly dazzling night out on the water. The Boston skyline is your backdrop, the sky is vast and Boston Harbor is yours. The twinkle of the lights on the water will give you an image to remember. Turn your view to the entrance of the harbor and it is hard to see where the sky ends and the water beings. 

If you’re not into sailing then step aboard our 1920s style motor yacht and cruise through the night with your friends as you sip on wine and listen to some romantic tunes over our state of the art sound system. As you enjoy your evening our boat will pass quietly under the Mystic Tobin Bridge, U.S.S. Cassin Young, and the waterfront of the North End. This is the perfect way to impress your out of town guests after dinner for a unique way to do a sightseeing boat tour.
