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)

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.

To begin I would definitely do this again, but on a different boat. I sent a message on Friday night when we arrived to never receive a response about a broken deck chair that someone almost fell backwards on and lights that dont work in the boat.

Cool place to stay. Let me check in at 10 a.m. Able to walk everywhere from this location. Parking was $30 a day. Parking was right next to boat slips. Only one of the t.v had service. They painted the interior and didn't mask off or drop

Great stay on the Taurus! Weather was great, but back deck was covered so the one rain shower did force us to go inside. Location was perfect - 3 minute walk to the North End, 2 minute walk to the ferry and aquarium, 5 minute walk to Fanueil Hall.

Awesome stay, we love the site and the atmosphere. Was our 3 rd time with you, we will be back soon

Chris was a wonderful host and gave us great insight on what to do on our first stay in the city. Due to outside circumstances he got us an upgrade within our first 2 hrs of arriving! Both boats were clean and well kept and we can't wait to stay

Had we been able to inspect the Taurus prior to booking (we were told that it was rented at the time of our visit) I doubt very much if I would have booked it. The general condition of the vessel was poor to say the least. On the outside, the

Staying on a boat in the Boston Harbor is a fun unique experience that we thoroughly enjoyed, and look forward to doing it again. The boat we originally reserved needed some repairs and they accomodated us for 5 days in two bigger, more expensive

Great location and fun staying on a houseboat. Chris took great care getting things ready for us and answering questions. Such a better experience than staying in a boring hotel room.

We had a great time this Fourth of July with sleep a float! The boat was spacious & in a great location. Walking distance to the north end & some great eating spots. We saw fireworks & tons of cool boats in the harbor!!

Chris is amazing and everything was great. The only thing I’d suggest is putting a lock in the inside of the boat and getting a coffeemaker that works. I was disappointed that the couldn’t have my morning coffee. Oh, also, the shower hose was

What a hidden gem this place is! From being on Lewis Wharf with beautiful sunrises/sunsets, being across the street from Faneuil Hall, the Aquarium, & North End (delicious), to having all the amenities one needs for a comfy stay at a very reasonable
