The Deal

  • $79 for a 75-minute Boston RIB adventure tour for two ($170 value)

Tours cover the history of the harbor's islands as guides point out lighthouses, forts, and other historic structures and pull in for close-up glimpses. As the speedy watercraft slices through the spray, participants outfitted with life jackets trace a stoplight-free path through the water. Patrons with disabilities or special needs may call to arrange a similar tour.

RIB Adventure Tours

RIB Adventure Tours conduct informative history tours and scavenger hunts around Baltimore Harbor, even when the horizon becomes a blur; all tours take place aboard 26-foot-long rigid, inflatable speedboats. Built to Navy SEAL specifications by a local Massachusetts boat manufacturer, the boats keep riders secure aboard jockey seats. On guided history tours, passengers snag high-speed glimpses of harbor landmarks including lighthouses and forts, whose history guides can expound upon. During scavenger hunts, guides prompt passengers to look for environmental clues and give individual scores. Captains and tour guides brief passengers on safety before all excursions and supply them with high-grade waterproof cameras to take pictures of passing scenery.

More relaxed cruises from partner Hestia Cruises, onboard the 32-foot sailing yacht Hestia, might drift past the USS Constitution or out into the outer harbor. The ship is manned by a captain, a full crew, and friendly cocker spaniel named Ensign. Guests can help with the sailing duties, but padded seats and a BYOB policy for those of age may encourage them to sit back and relax.

Customer Reviews

Great day out in the harbor. It was a blast
Serge N. · July 13, 2014
The pickup location is not where groupon says it is, but he came & got us. Not much of a "tour guide" but very nice and a great way to spend an afternoon. Would definitely do this again, lots of fun!
