Overview
Explore one of Boston’s most cherished landmarks, the historic USS Constitution, on this 45-minute cruise to see America’s Ship of State. Get up close and personal with "Old Ironsides," including the option to take a tour of the famous ship and USS Constitution Museum. Also on this tour, see Bunker Hill Monument, the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum and Old North Church. This seasonal cruise operates from April to November only.
What to Expect
The USS Constitution is the world's oldest commissioned warship afloat and America’s Ship of State — a wooden-hulled, three-masted frigate (a type of heavy warship) of the United States Navy, named by President George Washington after the Constitution of the United States. Launched in 1797, the USS Constitution was one of six original frigates that were authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794 and the third one ever built.

The USS Constitution is located inside Boston National Historical Park as part of the Charlestown Navy Yard and part of Boston's Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile path through downtown Boston that passes by 16 locations that are significant to the history of the United States.

This 45-minute journey visits “Old Ironsides,” with the option to disembark for a tour of the famous ship and USS Constitution Museum. Also on the tour, see Bunker Hill Monument, which was built to commemorate the Battle of Bunker Hill, the first major conflict between British and Patriot forces in the American Revolutionary War; the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, a floating history museum with live reenactments, multimedia exhibits and, of course, a tearoom; and Old North Church, Boston's most-visited historical site, where the famous "One if by land, and two if by sea" signal is said to have been sent.

45 minute tour

Did the 45 minute tour round the harbour, learn a lot about the history of the harbour and the piers, the person during the speaking on the tour was very informative well worth the money

My wife and I had a wonderful day following the Freedom Trail and having been to the Bunker Hill memorial wondered if we would go to see the USS Constitution. While we were were that close we thought yes, we will. However, when we arrived...More

Beautiful views of Boston!

We had the 3 day Go Boston card and one of the options was the harbor cruise. It was a perfect way to see Boston Harbor and the USS Constitution. Plus the boat pulls up and lets you off/back on to visit the USS Constitution...More

Harbor Cruise

Fun cruise. Very informative. Where to meet was a little confusing but we figured it out. We took the last cruise of the day and it was about to rain but it was a nice ending to a packed day of sightseeing.

Yes you can buy tickets onsite. But if you want to just get over to the USS Constitution you can pay $3.50 and take the ferry. Their ticket office is separate - further down toward the aquarium.

As previously answered, no. There are claims that the web site for the cruise is misleading. But it is not. Nowhere does it even imply that you will cruise on the USS Constitution.
