There are tours that take you to historical destinations, and then there are tours that take place on them. Consider tours aboard the Joseph S. Kennedy UB85 a little of both. This 50-foot Navy utility boat was built in 1985 and was assigned to the Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Roosevelt. Today, it charters passengers to historical sites such as the Charlestown Navy Yard, site of the U.S.S. Constitution and the World War II destroyer U.S.S. Cassin Young. The boat also ferries guests to one of the National Park Harbor Islands, where history and modern day converge in the form of festivals and events. On George Island, for example, passengers will find beer tastings and weekly recreations of Civil War-era baseball games, complete with original uniforms, original rules, and instant replays performed by actors.
