Charles River Boat Cruise

Enjoy a lunch buffet and narrated tour of the sights in Boston and Cambridge while cruising along the Charles River

Come join fellow UChicago Boston-area alumni on a narrated 3 hour river boat cruise along the Charles River highlighting the local sights in Cambridge and Boston along the way.

Ticket prices include a lunch buffet and non-alcoholic beverages. A cash-less bar will be available on board, all major credit and debit cards will be accepted.

Boarding begins at 10:45 AM at Lechemere Canal Park at The CambridgeSide Mall. The boat is located outside the doors by the food court and H&M store. The Cruise departs at 11 AM and will return to CambridgeSide Mall at 2 PM.

This event is discounted due to a generous alumni association grant. Ticket prices are only $30/adults and $10/children. The complete private charter is valued at over $70/person.

We hope that you will join us on this late summer Sunday to enjoy food, beverages, and the sights of Boston. Family and friends of alumni are always welcome.
