During the three-hour trip to Spectacle Island, guests spend an hour on the water and two hours on the island enjoying Boston Harbor. There is a small museum, a hiking trail to the top of the island (where there are views of the harbor and outer islands), opportunities for kite flying, picnicking, and sea glass hunting, and, depending on the day, swimming. To preserve Spectacle Island's natural beauty, guests are asked to bring all trash back with them and to donate any seaglass they find to the on-site museum. The boat holds up to 24 passengers.
Boston Harbor Shuttle
Licensed captains guide passengers through the city's wide harbor fairways and more intimate waterways on a range of tours, cruises, and charters. On the pub cruise, passengers can stop at two or three different restaurants along the way, and when disembarking they may stop at waterside eateries such as Legal Seafood and Aragostas to sip, dine, and heed Paul Revere's legendary warning about eating too many burgers. Passengers can also stop at waterfront museums, such as the newly re-opened Boston Tea Party Ships, ICA, or the perennial favorite, The New England Aquarium. While most cruises beckon customers to board the Precious Time, captains also conduct mini cruises aboard unique vessels.
