Working Port of Boston – Photo Gallery

EmailPrintFriendlyShare

Boston’s waterfront in winter is more than just cold … it’s starkly brilliant, reflective and beautiful. Without all the tourist activity, you can see today’s Working Port of Boston, which is the name of an occasional cruise offered by Boston’s Best Cruises. The boat goes through all the ins and outs of the inner harbor, highlighting the tugboats, container ships, LNG and oil tanker facilities, fishing boats and fire/rescue vessels. The downtown Boston shoreline is pretty, neat and largely gentrified while much of the outer commercial waterfront still has a gritty and interesting look (similar to what you see on Dirty Old Boston). Great views of the North End, Seaport, South Boston, Downtown, Charlestown, East Boston and Chelsea. Other than a much needed clam chowder break, it was cold but I think it was worth it to capture these off-season photos.

These are inspiring photos for those of us that love being here in the winter. The one of the tugboat with the foggy skyline belongs framed on a wall.
