2. Boston 90-Minute Historical Sightseeing Cruise
Take to the open sea for a fully narrated 90-minute tour around Boston Harbor, bringing your history book to life. Immerse yourself in Boston's history as you cruise past the oldest commissioned ship in the US Navy, the USS Constitution, marvel at the Tea Party ships, and catch a glimpse of the Old North End Church. From the hero tales of the Revolutionary War to the local legends of the sea, you’ll be entertained and enthralled. Other highlights you’ll see include the nation’s oldest continuously manned lighthouse, the Harbor Islands National Park Area, Boston’s working port and examples of extravagant waterfront living.
The sightseeing cruise was nice but there was no 11 am cruise. The company gave us seats on the noon cruise without a problem but we wasted an hour by getting to the dock for a cruise that didn’t exist. Don’t use Get Your Guide for booking. Try to go directly to the provider.

What people are saying about Boston Waterfront
I honestly thought it would be like finding a needle in a haystack — a large needle in a large haystack — and resigned myself to likely just having a nice day on the ocean. But then we saw blows and flipper slaps and eventually humpbacks bowing out of the water and then tail whips before diving. And multiple whales! It was an amazing experience and a bucket list one at that. The whole excursion made the whole Boston trip!
Such an amazing experience! The guides shared such important and interesting information throughout. We saw more whales than I could have ever imagined and I truly enjoyed hearing about each individual’s whale’s story!
Saw- 7-8 whales. Good experience. No jumping though like shown in the picture. Lol. That would have been real cool
Great weather day, two humpback breaches, two waves to the boat with their fin and multiple, specatacular dives.
Narrator was very detailed she spoke clearly Very interesting cruise
