Soak up the watercolor sunset with today's Groupon to Boston Harbor Cruises. For just $12, you get a 90-minute cruise of the inner harbor (a $22 value). Watch as the sun spills its light onto the water until it dips below the horizon while the USS Constitution salutes nightfall by firing a cannon, lowering the flag, and airing old episodes of The Andy Griffith Show using a digital projector.

Bid the summer adieu with your summer fling, take your family on a watery outing, or play tourist for one beautiful night. While soaking up the sea breeze on the historic waterway, hit up the on-boat bar for a romantic sunset beverage and listen to the engaging and informative narrator.

Boston Harbor Cruises

At the age of 16, Matthew "Matty" Hughes became the youngest-ever licensed captain in the port of Boston. Funneling his passion into a career, he founded Boston Harbor Cruises in 1926 to lead tours up the Charles River. What began as a two-man, one-boat operation has grown tremendously throughout its more than 90-year history, now encompassing a 52-boat fleet and more than 400 employees who transport more than 2.5 million passengers.

The Boston Harbor Cruises staff handles all things nautical, from whale watching and Codzilla thrill ride tours to wedding receptions and celebrations for special occasions. Because dolphins are hard to saddle and refuse to obey verbal commands, Boston Harbor Cruises also navigates the waters with ferries and harbor cruises that explore the historic and romantic sights of Boston.

Though the leadership has changed, Matty's grandchildren and great grandchildren still perpetuate the traditions of Boston Harbor Cruises, furthering one man's obsession with the harbor and inspiring future generations to create their own memories on its inviting waters.
