It’s a moving experience for visitors to Boston and, no disrespect to the Duck Tour or Swan Boats, but they’ve added a splash of color and a blast of power in the harbor.
Last month, a new endeavor called the “Boston Sea Rocket” began taking people on sightseeing trips with a bit more speed.
“It’s the newest, best boat in town and it screams like hell,” said Graham Potter, one of the Captains of the Sea Rocket.
The optic orange and fluorescent green twin turbo 700 horsepower boat seats 14 passengers, and was the idea of Dan Arrington, who also owns the Boston Harbor Mini Speedboat Tour.
“The concept was something that’s adventurous, something that was fun and also something that was part educational,” Arrington said. “If you like to go fast and you’d like to learn a little bit about the history of Boston – the Nantucket Light Ship, the Tea Party Ships and Museum, U.S.S. Constitution, then this is a great combo of both.”
A ride on the Sea Rocket usually lasts just over an hour, adults cost $49 dollars, kids are $35 dollars.
Occasionally, discounted tickets are offered on-line. If you want to find out more about the sea rocket click http://www.bostonsearocket.com/home.html
