Rowes Wharf Water Transport's water-taxi service picks up patrons from various points throughout the Inner Harbor, seating them in fully upholstered, heated boats for commutes across the water-paved highway. With the service, seafarers can catch a flight at Logan Airport or visit the New England Aquarium and fight the urge to headbutt the enormous tanks' glass.
On Boston Green Cruises's 90-minute tour, sightseers ferry through the city's historic Inner Harbor and Charles River on peaceful, environmentally responsible vessels. After taking off from Rowes Wharf, guests can coast through the gentle waves of Boston Harbor aboard the quiet, battery-powered Unplugged, a zero-emissions boat propelled by a highly efficient power rudder and early Steely Dan albums. The aquatic vehicle comfortably seats up to 12 guests, ensuring each passenger has ample room to lounge atop plush seating as informative narration points out attractions scattered underneath the Boston skyline, including the USS Constitution and the old railroad bridge over the Charles River.
Boston Green Cruises
You'll be hard pressed to find a better view of Boston Harbor than the one on the fully-electric boat "Unplugged" or the low emissions catamaran named the "Beachcat," two of the several boats in Boston Green Cruises' fleet. Smaller groups will have personalized views of the city skyline, along with historic sights, via Boston Green Cruses' eco-friendly boats.
