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.
