What you can expect
As you cruise along the Inner Harbor and out into the greater Boston Harbor, take in the city skyline and closer views of both historic and modern structures. Hear tales of the Revolutionary War and anecdotes about the buildings you pass during your 90-minute cruise.
On your way out of the Inner Harbor, pass the many wharves and docks that make up Boston's working port. Pass Castle Island, home to Fort Independence, as you cruise farther out into Boston Harbor. Approaching your turn-around point of Long Island, you see Boston Light – the nation's oldest continuously manned lighthouse – in the distance.
As you head back to Long Wharf, see the mouth of the Charles River, known for its three Gridley Locks, which can be crossed via the Boston Harborwalk.
