Of Boston Harbor Boat Cruises and Beauty

If you are headed to Boston, or if you’ve lived in Boston for a while but are a lazy landlubber, get thy dry butt to the water, pronto!

Boston’s infamous harbor has now evolved to be inspiring.

On land, the Harbor boasts a gorgeous, sculpture-filled “Harbor Walk” which is so long and exciting that it makes for a great field trip or date. But the real thrill begins when you hop aboard a vessel and set sail… or motor!

There are an enormous variety of ways to rock out Boston Harbor and its islands, from a super-cheap commuter shuttle which jets you from Boston to Charlestown Navy yard, to various types and prices of craft to boop and bop about the Harbor Islands and beyond.

Every time I’ve boated in Boston Harbor, it’s been the best. Why? Here are some reasons, in pictoral form, from my most recent watery escapade: a two-hour Tall Ship sunset sailing cruise of the Harbor (with a half-price coupon)!

There’s such a feeling of community among strangers on boat rides!

You pass dramatic shipping cranes… and planes from Logan zoom RIGHT overhead you!!!

The weather system is often different on shore, causing fabulous clouds.

Pretty mast!

A boat is the perfect escape from your ordinary life: see it all, bobbing beautifully, from a distance!
