Boston boat cruises are a relaxing way to see the sites and enjoy a lovely afternoon at sea. A ride on Codzilla, on the other hand, is an adrenaline-packed adventure with some local landmarks thrown in for good measure!
One look at Codzilla and you know you are in for a different kind of experience. The 70-foot multi-colored boat is the only high-speed ride in Boston Harbor, and features a sinister toothy grin.
The vessel makes its way leisurely out of Boston Harbor in compliance with the city's no-wake zones. For the first 25-30 minutes, riders are treated to a guided tour, including a brief skit about pirates and the story of Codzilla, a mythical giant cod.
The boat leaves from Long Wharf, passes the New England Aquarium, the beautiful Boston Harbor Hotel at Rowe's Wharf, and Fort Independence at Castle Island. Expect to see great views of the waterfront and city skyline.
The final 10-15 minutes of the ride are when the fun really begins as the boat performs different high-speed maneuvers at a max speed of 40 mph.
Be prepared to get wet!
Codzilla comes equipped with waterproof bags for your belongings, and you can purchase inexpensive ponchos to spare you the worst of the splashing.
The website states the "wettest" seats are those at the rear and edges of the boat, so those who wish to avoid the spray should sit in the front center.
The entire excursion lasts about 45 minutes.
