Getting out on the water is a necessity to truly experience New England, as much of its history, character and lifestyle is tied to boating. Cruises allow visitors to enjoy stunning scenery, witness wildlife and learn about the region’s maritime past and present.

Revel in enchanting bird-watching experiences on Connecticut’s RiverQuest cruises, or get out on New England’s largest lake via Vermont’s Lake Champlain Ferries for a stunning sunset cruise. Hop aboard a lobster boat tour in Maine, such as Rugosa Lobster Tours of Kennebunkport to learn about the famous crustaceans and how they are caught. Boston’s Word War II-era amphibious Duck Tours will delight and educate kids and adults alike, whether driving on land or plunging into the Charles River. In New Hampshire, join Isles of Shoals Steamship Company for spine-tingling boat tours to storied islands, rich in tales of pirates, treasure, shipwrecks and ghosts. If it’s a relaxing sailing excursion visitors prefer, Rhode Island’s variety of pleasure boats around Newport Harbor stand at the ready.

Many more maritime adventures await!
