Best waterfront view of Boston harbor!
The staff at Courageous was helpful in helping us execute all of the logistics of our wedding day! We have been coming here for years for various sailing events and did not want to have our special take place anywhere else as this location means so much to us! The tent space is large to accommodate a large guest count and the outdoor area at the end of the pier was spruced up with some greenery to make it feel more intimate and casual with lawn games. The staff helped coordinate with all of our vendors and clearly showed that they know how to handle a full scale event seamlessly! Thank you Courageous!Sent on 10/19/2019

Our wedding reception was at Courageous Sailing and it was worth every penny spent! You have to use their Tent vendor for tables, chairs, etc. but you are free to use any other vendors for other stuff. We had some restraints in the beginning with regard to the site having enough event permits from the City of Boston but everything worked out in the end. The staff was great, answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The view is amazing and we would not have wanted to have our wedding at another venue!Sent on 08/12/2012

We absolutely loved having our wedding at the Courageous Sailing Center. The staff was so kind and listened to our feedback with careful attention. We loved the fact that our site fee went to support an important non-profit. It's impossible to find a better view of the city skyline than from Pier 4 and the tent they provide is the perfect raw space to transform. We'd do it all over again and still choose Courageous for it's central (perfect!) location, laid-back feel and professional staff.Sent on 04/03/2018
