    Well-organized, wonderful vendor!

    We rented the Valiant for a 55-person Welcome Party the night before our wedding. We did a two-hour cruise + buffet dinner + bar, and it was SO fun and unique. So many guests commented on how lovely it was, and how it made for such a fun kick-off to the wedding. Their team (shout out Dayna!) was exceptionally professional and very responsive to any questions we had. The crew on board did an excellent job. I just wish we could have used them for our reception (they were already booked!), because they were super easy to work with and did a great job of making the event feel really special.

    Amazing Experience

    Melissa and Georgie were one of the best vendors we have worked with. We had to make several changes from the hours, the size of the boats, and the location but Melissa and Georgie always had a solution for us and worked with us to make those necessary adjustments. We, unfortunately, had a terrible planner so if it wasn't for Melissa and Georgie, I don't think our event would've been smooth sailing. Thank you!!

    Weddings on the Valiant = A dream experience

    Our wedding aboard the Valiant was like a dream! The team at Charles Riverboat were absolutely amazing and took care of so much of the planning for our big day. The views were spectacular and I can't wait to see the pictures from a magical night. Highly recommend for an intimate wedding on Boston Harbor!
