Water Lover

Itching to get on the Water? Boston's location is ideal for everything aquatic.

If you love the water, you're in luck! The best view of Boston's skyline can be seen from a sailboat along the Charles River, or from your own canoe or kayak rental. Looking for something a bit more romantic, then take a lunch or dinner cruise around the Boston Harbor.Charles Sailing small

For the more adventurous, board the Codzilla for a wet and wild ride across the ocean as the wind roars, the music blares and the waves splash over you! Novices and seasoned veterans can hook up for some deep sea fishing for "monster cod" or inshore for trophy bass and blues. There are day trips to explore the Harbor Islands National Park. Or you can hit the high seas for a whale watch with 99% guaranteed sightings of endangered humpbacks, minke whales or the solitary finback.

Sailing more to your liking? Then catch the wind on a replica schooner from the 1800s.

Even landlubbers know that a visit to Boston isn't complete without a ride on the pedal-powered 135-year old Swan Boats in the Public Garden. Or go on one of our famous Duck Tours!

Boston's newest delight is Harbor Walk, an inviting public walkway along the waterfront, with parks, public art, seating areas, cafes, exhibit areas, interpretive signage, water transportation facilities and even catch a glimpse of the seals at the aquarium! Enjoy the walk and spectacular views.

Looking for something outside of Boston, definitely take a trip to the beaches of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket.
