Urban AdvenTours' team of bicycle experts leads tours through the historic and scenic neighborhoods of Boston and rents out and tunes up two-wheeled vehicles.

Urban AdvenTours' guides leverage their deep knowledge of the city and bicycles to answer questions and render each tour smooth and exhilarating, like a trip down a freshly sandpapered wooden slide. Each 2.5- to 3-hour-long tour includes a bike, helmet, and water, and covers 10 to 12 miles.
Boston locals guide tour-goers on foot through the streets of America’s Walking City, exploring historical landmarks and dipping in and out of neighborhood watering holes and eateries.

Docked adjacent to the New England Aquarium, the Liberty Star and the Liberty Clipper look distinguished. The Liberty Star measures 67 feet long and can hold up to 39 passengers, and the Liberty Clipper measures 125 feet long with a capacity for up to 100 passengers. The massive schooner is an authentic replica of an 18th-century Baltimore clipper ship, thoroughly modernized to transport passengers on Boston Harbor sails and longer private charters. They sail daily throughout the harbor for public and group outings, along with private charters for special events, such as weddings or corporate proms. For a longer respite, they hoist the sails and steer southwards where the Liberty Clipper sails the Bahamas and the Liberty Star sails the Virgin Islands on adventure sailing vacations.
With its flotilla of watercraft ranging from a 12' Triumph to a 42' Post Marine Sportfish, Boston Harbor Boat Rentals gives patrons access to the surrounding waterways aboard well maintained floating fortresses. Groups can don their life vests and clamber aboard for day cruises that last as long as 8 hours, and might include stop-offs at the many docks and islands found around Boston Harbor. Before sending sea-farers out on their voyage, the company tops off gas tanks and puts novices through a Boating Safety and Small Boat Operation course so misguided mariners don't try to jump over small islands.
