Tour the city by land and water with Boston Duck Tours

The season for riding road and river opens April 1.

Passengers on a Boston Duck Tours duck boat.

Paul Revere would have trouble calling this one, since this famous city tour is by land and by sea. Hop aboard a Boston Duck Tours duck boat and discover Boston as the amphibious vehicle weaves through streets and harbor waterways for an 80-minute long adventure. With three departure locations (the Museum of Science, Prudential Center, New England Aquarium), this is the only tour operator that can traverse both land and water to deliver breathtaking views all in one tour. You’ll cruise by unique neighborhoods and historical landmarks that make Boston the birthplace of freedom and a city of firsts, with each conDUCKtor, or guide, adding a unique spin on each tour (some even dress in costume). Tour highlights include the Old State House, Boston Common, Public Garden, and Faneuil Hall before splashing down right into the Charles River for spectacular views of the Boston and Cambridge skylines.
