Boston Waterfront Photo Tour

Boston Harbor had the busiest port in America for hundreds of years. Rebellious colonists celebrated a famous tea party on the waterfront and thousands of immigrants crossed its shore. Now the revitalized waterfront is definitely worth a visit.

Capture pictures of the most scenic views along the harbor using PhotoWalks' artistic photography tips. Many photo opportunities await along Boston’s waterfront!

Each PhotoWalks tour is designed to show locals and visitors alike the city's photo opportunities with instruction on creative composition skills. 

Most tours are conducted in a small group setting for a more personalized experience. All ages and skill levels are welcome. 

Adults: $40 | Youth: (10-17): $20 with paying adult.
