$30 for a Boston Society of Architects Architectural Sightseeing Cruise for Two (Up to $52.50 Value)

During the 90-minute tour, professional guides from Boston By Foot—supported by the Boston Society of Architects—regale passengers with facts about the artistic design and history of buildings along the Boston waterfront. They point out sculpted façades, distinct architectural styles, and the best spots for couples to practice competitive hand holding as the classic riverboat glides through the Boston Harbor into the Charles River locks and down to the Charles River Basin. Tours run daily at 10 a.m. rain or shine.

Cruise Boston

A classic, one-story riverboat churns the water. Its gleaming white hull cuts through gentle waves and reflects the sun. On an outdoor deck, passengers gaze upon the structural landscape while wind ruffles their hair. Cruise Boston’s captains ferry visitors through the Boston Harbor along the city's waterfront and up and down the winding Charles River aboard the Henry Longfellow, a powered one-story tour boat with fully retractable windows that offer a panoramic view. On sightseeing tours guides divulge the history behind the city and its waterfront buildings, explaining why most opted to construct stairs instead of water slides, as they pass the USS Constitution, Long Wharf, Bunker Hill, Back Bay, and Fenway Park.

An antique paddleboat churns the water. Its gleaming white hull cuts through gentle waves and reflects the sun. Passengers gaze out of lower-level windows or rest their arms along the railings on an open upper level, where they stand sheltered from the weather by a striped fabric canopy.

During warmer weather captains also pilot tours at sunset—during which bartenders sling cocktails from a full on-board bar, and summery music wafts from the deck and into the night.
