Bay State Cruises is proud to have provided passenger vessel service on Boston Harbor since the 1960s. We are a tightly knit group of hard working folks who care a great deal about what we do on the water and how we do it.
We encourage those who also love to be around boats and the waterfront, have an enthusiasm for leaning into their work, and have an upbeat demeanor in general to apply for a position with us.
Below are positions we are currently looking to fill. If the job description seems up your alley, please email your interest and a description of your experience to:
Bay State Cruises operates year-round service from down town Boston Harbor to the Encore Resort Boston Harbor. We operate up to four high end vessels, from the hours of 1pm and 10pm.
The vessels are state of the art MJM 40Z yachts, built locally by Boston Boat Works.
Captains – we are looking to fill one year-round captain position. The vessel requires a 25 ton license.
Crew – we have two year-round senior deckhand positions open.
Bay State Cruises operates seasonal, May – Oct service from to Provincetown. We operate two high quality Gladding Hearn Fast Ferries, maintained to a high standard.
Shift lengths are from 6am-1:00pm, or, noon-10:00pm and are rotated amongst the skippers so that everyone gets their desired hours.
Winter time activity will see crew participate in the maintenance of the vessels.
Captains – we are looking to fill one year-round captain position. The vessel requires a 100 ton inland license. High speed experience is a plus, as is having run on exposed routes.
Crew – we are looking for two fast ferry senior deckhands/mates. This could also be a position for a licensed operator looking to accumulate experience on a fast ferry or exposed route, with the hope to then move up to the bridge. Although we insist on splitting the daily work shifts into two for the operators, many of our crew prefer to work two days on and two days off of 15.5 hour days.
Bay State Cruises operates year round Monday-Friday commuter boat service between North Station (Lovejoy Wharf) and the Seaport District (Fan Pier)
Shift lengths are from 5am-1:00pm, or, noon-7:30pm.
These are triple water jet boats, powered by three engines of 800hp each. The vessels are highly maneuverable and are operating well below their service capabilities.

Crew – we are looking for two senior deckhands/mates. This could also be a position for a licensed operator looking to accumulate experience on a jet boat, with the hope to then move up to the bridge.
