Boston Harbor Historic Sightseeing Cruise

Since its discovery by John Smith in 1614, Boston Harbor has been an important part of American history. It was the site of the Boston Tea Party, and almost continuous backfilling of the harbor until the 19th-century. By 1660 almost all imports came to the greater Boston area and the New England coast through the waters of Boston Harbor.

On this tour you will discover the historic and contemporary milestones of Boston's inner and outer harbors during this fun, informative, fully narrated cruise.

The inner harbor was historically the main port of Boston and is still the site of most of its port facilities, as well as the Boston waterfront, which has been redeveloped for residential and recreational uses.

From the hero tales of the Revolutionary War to the local legends of the sea, you'll be entertained and enthralled. See how the harbor was transformed into one of the cleanest harbors in the country. 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.
