Spend A Perfect Summer Day On This Old-Fashioned Paddle Boat Cruise In Massachusetts
Looking for a unique summer activity that won’t break the bank? This old-fashioned paddle boat tour in Massachusetts is just the thing. A cruise on the The Pilgrim Belle is a perfect way to spend a warm summer day on the water.
The Pilgrim Belle is an old-fashioned paddle wheel boat and the only ship of its kind in Massachusetts.
The big red wheels on the back of the vessel move it through the water, just like those iconic ships on the mighty Mississippi.
The remarkable paddle wheels are the only thing propelling the ship.
The cruise departs from Plymouth Harbor and is an incredibly relaxing and scenic way to take in the beauty of the area.
Relax on the ship’s spacious sun deck and sip your favorite beverage while the glittering sea slips by.
If it’s a little hot out for your liking, settle into the climate-controlled main cabin and check out the spinning wheels through the back.
You don’t have to worry about rough seas – the protected nature of Plymouth Harbor means that your journey will be all smooth sailing.
Even on a breezy day, the surf stays calm. You'll be surrounded by the smell of salt air, the cries of seagulls, and the uniquely soothing sound of the paddles moving through the water.
The galley serves plenty of tasty treats and cool drinks, including beer, wine, and cocktails.
The Pilgrim Belle leaves harbor four times a day. Tickets are $20 per adult, $17 for seniors and $13 per child. Kids under three ride for free.
For the cost of beach parking or a movie ticket and popcorn, you could spend the afternoon out on the water.
Tours last just over an hour, so you’ll have plenty of time to hop into downtown Plymouth before or after for lunch or a spot of shopping.
For a few bucks more, you can also opt for a later sunset cruise aboard the Pilgrim Belle. It’s a truly magical way to cap off an evening.
Of course, a ride aboard this unique vessel is sure to be a dream no matter what time you choose to set sail.
