What You Can Expect

Boston USS Constitution Cruise

USS Constitution Crusie

The USS Constitution is the world's oldest commissioned warship afloat and America’s Ship of State — a wooden-hulled, three-masted frigate (a type of heavy warship) of the United States Navy, named by President George Washington after the Constitution of the United States. Launched in 1797, the USS Constitution was one of six original frigates that were authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794 and the third one ever built.

The USS Constitution is located inside Boston National Historical Park as part of the Charlestown Navy Yard and part of Boston's Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile path through downtown Boston that passes by 16 locations that are significant to the history of the United States.

This 45-minute journey visits “Old Ironsides,” with the option to disembark for a tour of the famous ship and USS Constitution Museum. Also on the tour, see Bunker Hill Monument, which was built to commemorate the Battle of Bunker Hill, the first major conflict between British and Patriot forces in the American Revolutionary War; the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, a floating history museum with live reenactments, multimedia exhibits and, of course, a tearoom; and Old North Church, Boston's most-visited historical site, where the famous "One if by land, and two if by sea" signal is said to have been sent.

Great history and information

4 star rating: Recommended September 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The guide that we had was unusually good in that he was both entertaining and informative. The only reason I give the tour 4 stars is that the water potion of the tour was relatively brief and not too informative.

Very nice and relaxing. No guides on board which make it less appealing. The personal touch is always best I think.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2014

The tour was informative and interesting. It was great to be able to get of the boat and explore the USS Constitution and walk the freedom trail to Bunker Hill. We even found a bar that was established in the 1700's.
