The Swan Boats of Boston have been an institution in the city since the first swan boat was launched back in 1877. The inventor of the original Swan Boat got his inspiration for the swan design from the opera Lohengrin, in which the hero crosses a river in a boat drawn by a swan. In those days, each of the unique Swan pedal boats could seat just two people and their driver, but over the years the vessels have evolved and now carry up to 25 people for a fun trip around the Public Gardens Lagoon. Your ride on the Swan Boat will take around 15 minutes and children under two get a free ride. The Swan Boats only operate in summer.
