Commuting via boat has a number of advantages: there are no traffic jams, there are no hitchhikers with hooks for teeth, and if you hit a deer, it’s definitely the deer’s fault.

Rowes Wharf Water Transport’s water-taxi service picks up patrons from various points throughout the Inner Harbor and seats them in fully upholstered, heated boats for commutes across the water-paved highway. With the service, seafarers can catch a flight at Logan Airport or visit the New England Aquarium and fight the urge to headbutt the enormous tanks’ glass.
On Boston Green Cruises’s 90-minute tour, sightseers ferry through the city’s historic Inner Harbor and Charles River on peaceful, environmentally responsible vessels. Guests coast through the gentle waves of Boston Harbor and admire the waterfront scenery aboard the quiet, battery-powered Unplugged, a zero-emissions boat propelled by a highly efficient power rudder and early Steely Dan albums. The aquatic vehicle comfortably seats up to 12 guests, ensuring each passenger has ample room to lounge atop plush seating while taking in the Boston skyline, the USS Constitution, and the old railroad bridge over the Charles River.
Boston Green Cruises
You'll be hard pressed to find a better view of Boston Harbor than the one from the top deck of Waters Edge, a 45-foot-long luxury boat and one of several boats in Boston Green Cruises' fleet. During cruises, the vessels travel to Charlestown, the north and south edges of Boston, East Boston, and the Seaport District. Longer journeys span all the way to the Charles River's Longfellow Bridge, known to locals as the "salt-and-pepper bridge" due to the shape of its central towers and the well-seasoned waters that surround it.

“Great, small and simple boat tour. We sat inside and the Captain actually gave us information about the sights. He was super knowledgeable about the history of the city. There was another guy on the top deck who did the tour info for most people (we were cold!). There were drinks available as well. The boat isn't super fancy, but I had a wonderful time!”
