Departing from Rowes Wharf, Odyssey cruises along Historic Boston Harbor from Castle Island to George's Island, then east to the Boston Light on Little Brewster Island, and back north to Charlestown Naval Yard before returning to the Wharf. The cruise route may vary depending on weather. Below is a list of some interesting places you will pass on the way.
USS Constitution and Charlestown Naval Yard: Home to the USS Constitution, Old Ironsides, the US Navy's oldest commissioned warship and the USS Cassin Young, World War II Naval Destroyer.
The Seaport District: Where you find the World Trade Center, Boston Fish Pier, the new Federal Courthouse and the Harborlights Pavilion.
Castle Island: Home to Fort Independence, this island is recognized as the oldest most continuously used military fortification in the United States.
Spectacle Island: Originally two small islands joined by a sandbar, the island's name is presumably derived from its resemblance to a pair of spectacles.
Deer Island: Served as the World War II Harbor Entrance Command Post, now the site of a wastewater treatment plant.
Lovell's Island: Home to Fort Standish and a secret tunnel, which served as an elaborate submarine defense system after the Civil War. Tales of the island include buried treasures and the saga of lover's rock.
Peddocks Island: During World War II over 1,000 Italian prisoners of war were held on this island at Fort Andrew.
Gallops Island: Thought to be one of the three possible islands to have the hidden treasure of Captain Kidd. During the Civil War, 3,000 soldiers camped here.
George's Island: With a long history of military service, the island is now a National Historic Landmark. Visitors to Fort Warren have claimed sightings of the island's legendary ghost, ‘The Lady in Black’.
Boston Light on Little Brewster Island: Erected in 1716 to guide incoming ships, the Boston Light was destroyed by British forces in March of 1776. In 1783 Massachusetts replaced the structure with an exact replica.
The Odyssey then heads back inbound and cruises along the breathtaking Boston skyline offering unmatched views of Boston's most famous architecture: South Station Tower, John Hancock Tower, Prudential Tower, Federal Reserve Bank Building, One Boston Place and many more.
Your delightful cruise ends back at Seaport World Trade Center.
