Enjoy a 2-hour experience (90-minute cruise with a 30-minute pre-boarding) in Boston Harbor which heads out to Fort Independence located on Castled Island and named after George Washington. Then circles back to the inner harbor to see the Mystic Tobin Bridge, Leonard Zakim Bridge, Custom House Tower, Old North church steeple, USS Cassin Young, and the USS Constitution.  An extra special feature on this cruise is the cannon fire at Sunset, which is presented off the USS Constitution every night to announce the setting of the sun.
