GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Massachusetts.
We did a fun sunset cruise with Patrick. We found the boat easily. Its in immaculate condition, and very comfortable, he took us on a Boston tour, followed by a fast ride to a nearby island where we anchored for some time, before going back to see Boston by night, before lettimg us off at Long Wharf. Highly recommend.
Fantastic experience! Tracy was extremely helpful before we went on the boat and Mike was a great captain. Great people and we had such a fun time. We went down the Charles river and back and the views were great. I would definitely book with them again.
Patrick was a great host. We were six people and booked the boat for 2 hours. We thought it was a good amount of time to sightsee and spend a few min to swim in one of the islands. He was so accommodating and would definitely book with him again. Boat was as advertised. The 6 of us fit perfectly.
Michael and Tracy were amazing hosts! We had 14 people and went out on a Friday afternoon for 3 hours. Tracy was super responsive and gave me all the details prior to our trip. Michael took us out to Spectacle Island where we all got to jump out and swim. We were initially concerned about the forecast, but Tracy reassured me that it would clear up and we had blue skies/sun the entire time. The coolers had fresh ice and we were able to play our music through the boat speakers. Micheal was incredible and knew his way around the harbor. (He also dealt with a bunch of crazy 25 yr olds and was super nice) We all had an absolute blast! And will definitely be booking again 10/10 🤌🏼🤌🏼🤌🏼🔥🔥🔥
Everything was great! Bob and his crew were super nice. It was such a nice cruise. Very nice yacht, clean and well kept. I didn’t realize at first that we would have to walk along the outside to get to the front of the yacht, but it didn’t stop us! We were all over the boat and enjoyed every minute.
We rented a boat for 2 hours for my birthday and had a great time. Tracy answered all my questions in advance and Mike was a great captain. Weather did not cooperate and half of our trip it was raining but the boat has a little roof, so we were able to stay dry. Built in speakers had very good quality sound. A cooler with ice and bottled water was provided. It was 9 people and we had enough space. Overall great experience and worth the money!
