Sea the Stars Cruise

We wish upon them, gaze at them, aim for them, and sometimes even thank our lucky ones! For centuries, stars have fascinated us, guided us, and provided us with nighttime illumination and splendor. Sadly, the abundance of bright lights and tall buildings has made stargazing for city dwellers difficult at best and often pretty much impossible. But fear not, amateur astronomers and celestial connoisseurs, the Museum of Science and Boston Harbor Cruises have teamed up to bring you the Sea the Stars Cruise!

Onboard a high-speed catamaran, you'll travel to where the city lights and congestion are just a bright memory for a stargazing opportunity like no other in the city.

Please note: Stargazing is dependent on clear skies. If forecasts show that clouds or precipitation will rule out good viewing, the cruise will be cancelled. Decisions on any cancellation will be made by 2:00 pm on the day of the cruise. Ticket passengers will be notified and refunds will be made. If, during the cruise, visibility limits successful stargazing, passengers will receive a rain check to return for a future Sea the Stars Cruise.

*July cruises end at 11:00 pm.
