  • Boston 90-Minute Historical Sightseeing Cruise

    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.

  • Boston Harbor Codzilla High Speed Thrill Boat

    3. Boston Harbor Codzilla High Speed Thrill Boat

    Hold on to your hats. It's Codzilla! This is no ordinary boat ride. True to its name, Codzilla is monstrously fun, a thrill a minute as you scream across the water at up to 40 mph, with a few hairpin turns and 360-degree spins thrown in for evil measure. Take a cruise on the wild side as you scream for more after riding Codzilla. The wind roars, the music blares and the waves will splash during a wet and wild 40-minute ride at full blast. The ride features an original soundtrack and a show scripted by Hollywood screenwriters. Sit back and relax? Not on this cruise. The boat, Codzilla, is 70 feet of marine aluminium and bad attitude, prowling the ocean with 2 turbo-charged diesel engines, state-of-the-art water jets and 2,800 horsepower.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this sunset cruise. The Captain and the crew were knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. The view was amazing….. not only did we experience a beautiful sunset, but we saw about 8 planes coming into Boston Logan Airport with several fluting right over us. The boat was comfortable and the drinks were great. Would highly recommend.

    Overall a pleasant experience. It would be even better if the staff are more interactive with the passengers and provide commentary on things like how sail boats work, history of that boat, history of boston harbor, what buildings are on the skyline. I think that’s a great opportunity to further improve customer experience.

What people are saying about Boston Waterfront

This trip was amazing! We were lucky and got to see 9 humpback whales. The swells were about 2-3 foot when we got out of the harbor. This is a long ride out and back, but the crew will point out sights along the way, and come around to answers question on the way back to the harbor. If you are prone to motion sickness I would suggest Dramamine or another medicine that helps with motion sickness.

This was such a fun tour! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area as he is a longtime resident and has even worked as a park ranger for Acadia :) We really enjoyed the tour and recommended it to our friends who also had a blast. Highly recommend adding this to any MDI itinerary!

Great, informative tour! It does get chilly out on the water so if you are going when it's not summer, be sure to bring a jacket and hat.

Great tour! My son just moved to Boston to start his career...this was a nice bit of history for him to learn the city!

Relaxing and enjoyed learning about the Boston harbor and history.
