Swan Boats Boston
A peaceful and unique experience in America's oldest botanical garden.
While visiting Boston your group needs to make a stop at a local cultural icon, the Swan Boats!
This family-owned business has been in operation since 1877, started by Robert Paget. The company owns a fleet of pontoon pleasure boats that operate within a lagoon in Boston's Public Garden, a relaxing ride through a picturesque oasis. The rides last about 12-15 minutes and allow you to simply enjoy the sites, perhaps catching a glimpse of the pond's resident swans, Romeo and Juliet.
The boats each have 2 pontoons, 30 feet long and 800 pounds each. The boats are pedal operated and hold about 25 passengers each on their benches. The tours operate the 3rd weekend of April through Labor Day.
