Catch of the Day

See the harbor like a lobsterman.

here are lots of ways to sightsee, but few like Boston Lobster Tours. On his boat, Fourcast, Everett firefighter Tony Carli shows you everything from the harbor islands to the apartment used by Jack Nicholson’s character in the movie The Departed. Carli not only shows you the sights, but teaches about fishing sustainability and catch limits. Once the traps are pulled at the end of each tour, guests can take home anything from spider crabs to lobster. Germain



The sewage treatment plant that keeps Boston Harbor clean is open for free tours, with some of the best views of the city skyline from the top of the giant egg-shaped “digesters” on Deer Island.
