      Tour Participation Requirements

      Activity Level

      This experience is rated mild. To participate fully, you may be required to walk over primarily even surfaces at a leisurely pace. You may encounter a limited number of steps, cobblestones, or uneven surfaces, and you may have to stand for extended periods of time.

      Age restrictions

      Suitable for all ages. Children 2 years of age and younger participate free of charge.

      KA-boom! What the? Don't worry. It's just the cannon sounding on the USS Constitution, marking the end of day and the lowering of the Stars and Stripes. You'll feel your heart stir as you watch the active crew perform this revered sunset tradition on "Old Ironsides," the oldest commissioned warship in the world. It's just one of the sights and sounds of harbor life you'll experience as the sun dips behind the Boston skyline.

      We'll cruise past scenes straight from the history books. Go ahead and give a big old "huzzah" as you see the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum. As we make the loop from the Inner Harbor out into Boston Harbor proper, you'll see the flashing beacon of Boston Light, which has been in the lighthouse business since 1716. These waters have seen its share of bravery and tragedy.

      Captain Lawrence famously intoned, "Don't give up the ship" just before the Chesapeake surrendered to the British navy during a fierce battle on these very waters back in 1813. No judging, but we won't give up the ship until we finish our tour of the working port and delight in the waterfront views that stretch out before us like a glittering necklace.

      From dirty ditty to clean scene

      How did Boston Harbor (the muse for 1966 garage rock classic Dirty Water) go from polluted and putrid-smelling to being one of the cleanest harbors in the country? It took 20 years and a $4.5 billion cleanup venture, but now even the EPA calls the harbor "a great American jewel." Today harbor seals and porpoises cavort in the water, and the harbor boasts a robust shellfish population. Now that calls for a lobstah roll!
