Boston Harbor Cruise Lighthouse Tours
Travel to the edge of Boston Harbor on an exciting 2-hour cruise and encounter three iconic lighthouses, and enjoy onboard narration provided by Boston Harbor Islands park staff and volunteers from the United States Coast Guard.
Learn about the maritime traditions of Boston Harbor, enjoy unforgettable views of the park and city, and experience one of the most unique and historically significant ports in the country.
The tour features close-up views of Long Island Light, Graves Light, and Boston Light – America’s first light station.
Tours depart from the Boston Harbor Islands Welcome Center on the Rose Kennedy Greenway (across from the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel and next to the Greenway Carousel). Please arrive 30 minutes early to check in.
Food and water are not available on the boat. Plan to bring your own food and drink. Alcoholic beverages, smoking, and vaping are not permitted on the cruise.
**There is is no public access to Little Brewster Island or Boston Light due to ongoing maintenance following winter storms. Weather and sea conditions can occasionally force cancellations. Please check your email or voicemail before arriving for your trip.
Tour schedules are subject to sudden changes or cancellations due to marine conditions. Providing your cell phone and email address when purchasing tickets will allow Rangers to contact you in the event of a cancellation.
