Lovely evening
Linda D. · September 21, 2014
The historic sightseeing cruise around Boston Harbor was informative, fun, and relaxing. I would do it again!

What You'll Get

Ocean cruises are a luxurious way to relax and see the sights, unlike boarding dolphins equipped with saddles, which usually results in whiplash and water-logged mittens. Cruise the blue in comfort with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a 90-minute sunset cruise with Boston Harbor Cruises (up to a $22 value).

This fully narrated sunset cruise provides tourists and locals alike the opportunity to savor spectacular views of the inner harbor while soaking up city history and occasional harbor spray. As you coast the early-evening waves, watch with admiration as the sun spills its ever-changing pigments onto the water like an overgrown Monet. When the fiery star dips below the horizon, sit back and relax while the USS Constitution salutes nightfall by firing a cannon, lowering the flag, and airing old episodes of The Andy Griffith Show.

Cruises are scheduled to take place daily now through September 6, then Thursday through Sunday nights between September 7 and September 26. Usher in summer with a waterproof sweetheart, or play tourist for one beautiful night with your family of fanny packs. While soaking up the sea breeze on the historic waterway, hit up the on-boat bar for a romantic sunset beverage. Call to reserve your spot on the ship ahead of time, then get gussied up to impress the home of the gilled.

About 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.
