Boston Harbor Cruises has been introducing visitors to the Boston Harbor since 1926. Today they are New England’s oldest and largest cruise company. Boston Harbor Cruises offers Whale Watching, Sightseeing, Lighthouse, and Sunset Cruises, in addition to fast ferries for private functions and general entertainment. Boston Harbor Cruises also runs The Landing, Boston’s only fully outdoor patio bar and a great spot to enjoy drinks and the view of the Boston harbor. There’s no reason to trek to Boston’s Historic Ballpark when you can catch a Red Sox game on TV from the waterfront!
Experience the excitement of observing the ocean’s most magnificent creatures on one of Boston Harbor Cruises’ 3 or 5-hour whale watching cruises. Boston Harbor Cruises offers Boston’s only three-hour whale watch, which gets you to and from the whales in less time and gives you more time to watch. Researchers from the Whale Center of New England, the foremost authority on the region’s whale population, narrate all of the trips.
Boston Harbor Cruises also offers various sightseeing harbor cruises, which attract longtime residents and visitors alike. The sightseeing cruises are informative, entertaining, and relaxing. Take the USS Constitution Cruise and visit “Old Ironsides” in the Charlestown Navy Yard, or the Historic Sightseeing Cruise, which takes you to various Boston landmarks in the inner and outer harbor. See some of the most striking views of Boston on the Charles River and Locks Tour, or enjoy the spectacular sunset or lighthouse cruises.
