Swan Boats

A beloved spring tradition returns today, as the famous Swan Boats of Boston float again on the Public Garden lagoon. For more than 130 years, they have charmed residents and visitors with peaceful and picturesque rides in the heart of the city. The family-run enterprise employs the only boats of their kind in the world. Learn more about this unique Boston experience.

WGBH delights in the traditions that define Boston and set our city apart.
