Charles River tours, which run daily May–October, ferry sightseers on 60-minute journeys along the Charles River Basin. The captain and crew point out historic sights such as Beacon Hill, the field at Fenway Park, and the giant calculators that form the walls of M.I.T. On the 75-minute sunset cruise, which runs daily June–August, music fills the deck as sightseers sip drinks from a full-service bar and watch the sun fall over Harvard University.
Charles Riverboat Company
From the hallowed field at Fenway Park to the educational havens of Harvard and M.I.T, Boston's history is written across its skyline. The area's nearby waterways allow for mostly unencumbered views of these sights, and guided boat tours let sightseers experience the city in a relaxing way. To this end, Charles Riverboat Company's vessels embark on journeys across the Charles River and Boston Harbor. Architecture tours guided by an expert from Boston by Foot and run together with BSA Space, Boston’s premier cultural institution on architecture and design, and home to the Boston Society of Architects, the tour's captains and crews point out historic sights such as famous buildings or the 100-story kettle used during the Boston Tea Party. Sunset tours offered under the warm glow of the setting sun wind through the river as music plays. Charles Riverboat Company also charters their boats for groups of up to 150.
