Head instructor Francois Asselin has guided Boston Sailing Center's neophytes to seaworthiness for more than 15 years, with his programs reaching more than 400 students annually. Mr. Asselin and his cadre of nine other sailing instructors take small groups onto the water to provide hands-on experience with the ropes, sails, steering, and maintenance of sailboats. Together, they introduce the science of seamanship or sharpen the skills of experienced sailors so they can eventually set sail on their own with a complete mastery over wind, water, and doing jumping jacks with a peg leg. Boston Sailing Center owns an armada of vessels, which, in addition to lessons, may be rented for on-the-water events or lent out to members for regular sailing. Skippers conduct tours of Boston Harbor's skyline, stopping at scenic islands for impromptu picnics or to let parents maroon angst-ridden teenagers.

The row of gleaming teeth on this boat’s bow is the first clue that it's no leisure cruise. Another clue might be the AC/DC blaring through the speaker system. For 40 minutes at a time, Codzilla plows through the water at up to 40 mph, taking 360-degree spins on a dime and making for a thrilling, wet ride.

Tucked away on Salem Street is Pauli’s, a popular breakfast haven-turned-–restaurant, where hungry locals belly up to the counter. In the early morning glare, they come for hearty steak and egg breakfasts, hashes and cheesy three-egg omelets. Come lunchtime, diners look to the restaurant’s chalkboard-black walls, which are highlighted with the day’s specials. Rotating dishes may include a gnocchi marinara, tortellini alfredo, steak tips, fish ‘n’ chips, veggie burgers and every kind of sandwich imaginable, including some more adventurous finds like the Mezza Luna with grilled chicken and eggplant parmesan, or the Killer Bee, stuffed with a crispy chicken cutlet, bacon, provolone and honey mustard.

During tours with Massachusetts Bay Lines, passengers can watch the sun dip behind the city from the middle of the harbor. Lights flicker on across the skyline, poking holes in the setting darkness and pinpointing each building's location. All the while, the water laps against the side of the boat, providing a soothing soundtrack. Massachusetts Bay Lines has specialized in stunning views such as these for nearly 50 years. The family-owned company operates out of Rowes Wharf in downtown Boston, and its fleet includes a total of five unique vessels, instead of just one boat with a different name painted on the side each week. Customers can rent these boats out as private charters, or they can climb aboard for music and group tours of the harbor, which cruise past the 200-year-old USS Constitution and many more of the city's historic sites.
