Location:

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Boston at Lewis Wharf, this boat is just steps away from the New England Aquarium, Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall, the North End, Boston Garden, a public ice skating rink, and countless other things to see and do.

Transportation:

Short walk (less than 10 mins) to Aquarium, North Station and Government Center subway stations

The adjacent parking lot charges $30-35 for 24 hours (this does not include in-and-out privileges)

 

The Experience:

The boat is docked in a secure marina locked by a gate. Only those with the key can pass through the gate.

 

The waters are generally calm in this area but there can be some occasional movement during the day when boats pass by. At night the waters are very calm and some guests even find that a bit of gentle swaying relaxes them and makes for a very restful sleep.

 

After a long day of touring the city there is nothing better than relaxing on your own private deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy the fantastic waterfront atmosphere! Take advantage of the opportunity and reserve this boat with SleepAfloat!

Lewis Wharf is a private dock with close neighbors in an exclusive North End residential area. Quiet time is from 10 pm to 8 am. Please be respectful of our neighborhood.

  • Rates are for quoted for two guests. Each additional guest is $50/per person/night. Cleaning Fee: $119. Insurance Fee: $39
  • Holiday rates are higher – please call for rates.
  • Guests must electronically sign off on our SleepAfloat Rental Terms & Conditions within 48 hours of booking to validate confirmation.

Absolutely charming and a fantastic location! All the north end restaurants are an easy walk. You can watch the cormorants go to work in the morning off the docks. Great water pressure and electric, and super clean. We plan to come every year.

We really enjoyed the two nights on the Capricornus. The rooftop deck was HUGE with plenty of comfy furniture. Keurig coffee pot was a plus. We'll come back.

I left a green sweater on the boat and wondered if you could send it to me?
