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 free tennis court, 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)

Looking for a different type of transportation? Book a tour of the Boston Harbor with our partners, Red Top Boats, for a water taxi service or boat charter.

The Experience:

Lewis Wharf is a private dock with close neighbors in an exclusive North End residential area. Only those with the key can pass through the gate providing a secure place to sleep! Quiet time is from 10 pm to 8 am. Please be respectful of our neighborhood.

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!

Although generally calm, 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.

 

Take advantage of this unique experience! Book with us today!

 

Please note:

Check in is at 3pm unless pre-approved. Check out is at 11am, no exceptions.

The extra person fee applies for every guest after two guests.

This would be a three star review if my companion hadn’t figured out how to get the electrical back on. We arrived to a lovely and safe marina. The location in the north end is fantastic. When we went on the boat clearly it was a little older

So many issues. 1. almost impossible to find the boat. it is parked nose into the dock and you cannot see the name of the boat. We identified it by the photo, but if it had been pouring rain or after dark we would have ended up at a hotel for

Big plumbing issues had a leaking toilet all over bathroom floor and second toilet wouldn’t flush and the lights would go off when you tried to flush. Turned on bathroom sink for hot water there was none and all the lights went out and CO alarm

Great idea but poor plumbing and no hot water makes this a little more like camping than you’d expect.

Staying on the Sweet Caroline turned our weekend getaway into an amazing adventure and experience. The boat is comfortable and the marina is a nice escape from the bustle. Easy walk to Hanover street for great meals. Highly recommend.

We had an amazing time on the M/V Patriot! We rented the boat for 2 nights for my husband's 40th birthday and would do it again in a heartbeat. Our two boys (3 and 6) thought it was the coolest. From check-in to check-out, everything was great. The
