Boston Harbor Cruises

By Viator, September 2014

4.5 574 Reviews | Add your review

The Boston Harbor has had its share of drama since its discovery by John Smith in 1614 (Boston Tea Party, anyone?), but these days, it’s smooth sailing when you include a boat cruise in your Boston sightseeing itinerary. The themes and varieties are numerous – for a wacky, or maybe quacky, time, a duck boat tour offers both land and water adventure. The amphibious boat will take you past major landmarks like Bunker Hill and the Fleet Center. A USS Constitution cruise takes you to the Charlestown Navy Yard to see “Old Ironsides” herself. The New England Lighthouse Cruise offers amazing scenery of the Boston-area coastline as you pass by some of the oldest lighthouses in the US. Dinner and brunch cruises allow you to enjoy the Boston skyline while you dine, and a sunset cruise sets a romantic mood – sip a cocktail on the deck and watch the city light up as the sun goes down.
