My wife and I are boaters and wanted a true powerboat experience. The sea rocket was a great time. You start with a slow glide through the harbor checking out the sights. As soon as you reach the outer harbor buoy, hold on. The rocket...More

This was definitely a great time. I've never experience anything like it before. The boat's captain definitely has a good time driving it, and this thing has some serious speed. Highly recommend.

soon to be the #1 attraction in Boston. seeing the JFK museum-castle island and the outer islands gives you a new perspective of Boston. the ride has plenty of adventure and also a history lesson and great music. I will return.

This trip is a lot of fun and just the right size and duration. There is another speed boat ride nearby but the Boston Sea Rocket is so much better. You will LOVE this!
