Step aboard Northern Lights for a 2-hour sightseeing cruise to discover the history and mystery of our New England Harbor town, Boston. Boston Harbor is home to 34 islands and nearly every island has a story to tell. From its’ fortifications and hauntings to lighthouses and wildlife sanctuaries. The harbor is full of rich and unique history that will keep your attention throughout the trip. While aboard enjoy an 8 oz. Cup of New England Clam chowder, on us! It’s a staple here in Boston, and you can’t have a New England experience without it. Cape Cod author, Joseph C. Lincoln describes clam chowder as,“… a dish to preach about, to chant praises and sing hymns and burn incense before. To fight for. The Battle of Bunker Hill was fought for—or on—clam chowder; part of it at least, I am sure it was. It is as American as the Stars and Stripes, as patriotic as the national Anthem. It is 'Yankee Doodle in a kettle.'"
