The Pilgrims, though plagued by rough weather and cramped quarters, maintained high spirits on the Mayflower voyage thanks to the booty- and buckled-hat-shaking jams of the ship's house band, Puritan Funkadelic. Enjoy a similar hybrid of the maritime and musical with today's Groupon: for $8, you get a ticket for the Summer Sunday Blast cruise from Bay State Cruise Company (a $15 value). Choose from three available dates:
- July 18, 2010
- August 1, 2010
- August 15, 2010
Boarding begins at 3 p.m., with the cruise departing at 3:30 p.m. and returning at 6 p.m. Beach attire is optional for the cruise.
Bay State Cruise Company celebrates the season of baseball, barbecues, and Beethovenian sonatas with a series of cruises aboard its 1,100-passenger vessel, the M/V Provincetown II. The Summer Sunday Blast cruise takes to the waters of Boston Harbor for 2.5 hours of dancing and drinking, with a live DJ and a full cash bar on board to keep toes refreshed and palates popping and locking. The ship's large size and even keel help ensure that even landlubbers who get seasick from doing the Plunge can join in the Neptunian bacchanalia. Enjoy an afternoon of rug-cutting and Vitamin D–absorbing before returning to the tedium of the office's PowerPoint-heavy morning dance parties with a Summer Sunday Blast boatventure courtesy of the Bay State Cruise Company.
Must be at least 21 years old.
Ten Yelpers give Bay State Cruises an average of three stars:
- The mix of people on the boat was perfect... I hate to call myself normal, but the normal folks who are just there for a few beers and a nice boat ride. I'd try to go on one of these cruises next summer. – Eric T.
- Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could tolerate a boat cruise, booze, and dancing all at the same time without feeling sick to my delicate stomach. Suprisingly [sic] though, the Provincetown II didn't exacerbate any unwanted nausea or motion sickness :) Due to the boat's size, I was barely even aware that I was on a moving surface, floating on the water no less! – Ashley P.
