We had a great weekend in Boston walking in and around the North End, waterfront and then for a thrilling ride on Codzilla by Boston Harbor Cruises last Saturday. We'd never been on it before. As we chatted with other passengers we discovered that it's a pretty close to 50/50 split between locals and tourists all looking for something unique and fun to do.
It's about a 40 minute ride reaching speeds up to 40 mph (which is REALLY moving when you are on the water) filled with sharp turns, big splashes and nosedive stops. At times it felt like a rollercoaster. Still, we loved it and highly recommend it for a group of friends. Just don't wear your designer duds because even wrapped in a poncho you will get wet. It's quite windy out there.
It's not just the need for speed that makes the ride fun, however. There are also some stunning views of the harbor and Boston from the water.
For a short video of just how fast one moves and a real feel of the ride hit here for a video. H2whoa!!!!
We were invited by Boston Harbor Cruises on this experience as members of the media.
