Review"I went on a private “party” event on the ship during the summer and had a blast.
It was an evening tour and the weather was picture perfect. I had never been out to the Isles of Shoals before and I was really looking forward to seeing them and being out on the ocean. Basically, we loaded, left dock, went down the river to the harbor and out to the Isles and back which took about 3 hours. The boat was great. Clean, 2 levels with bars on both. The group I was with, had a potluck, so we all brought a dish to share. The staff were awesome. friendly and having fun too. I felt safe the entire time and the views were fantastic. After it got dark ( and too cold) to be out on the deck, we all went inside and danced on the dance floor to the DJ. An awesome time and I look forward to next years event." – Yelp Review
Review"We’ve lived in NH for 13 years and I’m afraid to say I have never explored this area. I’d purchased the tickets through an online deal, and paid half price. The narrator of the trip was very knowledgable about the areas toured. The ship itself is very stable, my spouse is very prone to sea sickness, and tolreated this trip without any issues. The FAQ’s on the company website are very helpful, and worth reading. Get there early, especially if you would like “prime” seats near a rail (perfect for photo opportunities!) Parking is offered close to the dock for $5.00. If you are planning on going out to the many eateries in the area, be warned you may need to move your car, or risk being parked in if there is another cruise. The parking garage just 3 blocks away charges 75 cents/hour and is worth the walk. Be sure to dress in layers, as the air temperature out over the water is 10-15 degrees cooler than inland. We didn’t sample any of the snacks available for purchase. I did see quite a few people eating pizza and enjoying cocktails. We brought our own snacks to enjoy." – Trip Advisor Review
