Swan Boat Rides
Little has changed since they first graced the 24-acre gardens lagoons in 1877. In fact, the boats are operated by descendants of Swan Boat founder Robert Paget. And they are still propelled the old-fashioned way too, by pedal power!

Swan BoatsMy daughters love this tradition and look forward to wandering around the lovely gardens afterwards. My late father was a swan boat peddler back in the 50's. We have many fond memories of stories he told and pictures of him peddaling. A great inexpensive way to spend the day in a great city.
Swan Boat RidesIt's beautiful, inexpensive and fun ! Just enough time to keep the attention of three-year olds, too.
Swan Boat RidesThis is an annual tradition for our family. It is such a wonderful step back in time, and the Public Garden in May is absolutely gorgeous. This is a great, cheap, low-key outing for the family.
