A cruise aboard the Pilgrim Belle is the perfect introduction to Plymouth and takes just over an hour. Departing from the Mayflower II State Pier, we are centrally located in the heart of Plymouth’s waterfront. Expect to have a most enjoyable cruise on a unique vessel as you travel through a harbor that is as picturesque as it is historic. Your ride is assured of being a smooth one due to the protected nature of Plymouth Harbor. Even on a breezy day the waters are smooth and comfortable!
The Pilgrim Belle is a true paddle wheeler. There is no conventional propeller. The big red wheels on the back of the boat propel it, just like they do on the mighty Mississippi!
Relax and enjoy the calming sound of the paddles as they swish through the water, leaving your troubles in the wake behind. Sit outside on our spacious sundeck while sipping your favorite beverage, or enjoy the climate controlled main cabin & bar looking out into the spinning red wheels! The galley features a variety of snacks and beverages, including beer, wine and cocktails for those 21 years or older.
About the Harbor Cruise
There’s a reason why the Mayflower finally lowered it’s sails and came to dock in Plymouth Harbor. It is a special place, and nearly five centuries later it’s considered by many one of the prettiest harbors in their travels. Board the Pilgrim Belle at Mayflower II State pier for a 75-minute cruise through beautiful Plymouth Harbor. While you’re taking in the sights and points of interest, soak up the sun and salt air on deck or relax inside our climate controlled cabin. Pilgrim Belle offers galley service and a full bar.
