We took the 1-hour Newburyport harbor tour, saw some seals, went out to the ocean and back. Narration was good, not great.

Learn about local history and ecology while cruising on their seaworthy boats. Have taken four different trips with them. Captain, crew and local experts do a great job imparting local knowledge while you sip a beverage, relax and enjoy the cruise.

Yesterday I took an historical tour of Newburyport harbor on the Yankee Clipper. It was very interesting and I learned a lot about the area. I have been living in the area for 30 years and I had never been on the tour. It is definitely worth it.

Great way to catch the sunset. Band was a lot of fun. Captain and Crew super nice. This was more of a party cruise than a nature thing but if that's what you are looking for, this is for you. Otherwise take the other times they go

Ghlee Woodworth, the special tour guide, is a wealth of knowledge of the history of the Newburyport area and its founding families. She is a natural storyteller and is well worth experiencing.
