Trip Advisor reviews of Harbor Tours:
“This trip should be taken by anyone visiting the Gloucester area! The breathtaking sights seen from the boat are ones that can’t be seen by car.” – JB
“What a great way to introduce the younger kids to boat travel, some history, and where their food really comes from! The crew was very good with the children abroad, aged 3-8. The rest of us enjoyed the ride, and learned a few things about Gloucester and its history in art, the fishing industry, and interesting earlier inhabitants. ” – MP
