Arriving by Boat
Several boat companies make runs between the airport and Downtown destinations. Take the free Shuttle Bus 66 from any terminal to the airport's ferry dock to catch Boston's water taxis.
Rowes Wharf Water Taxi goes from Logan Airport to Rowes Wharf, Downtown, for $10 per person ($17 round-trip). It operates daily from April through October.
Harbor Express water taxis (part of the MBTA system) take passengers from Logan Airport to Long Wharf, Downtown ($10), and to Quincy and Hull on the South Shore ($12). Boats leave approximately every 40–45 minutes from 6:20 am–10:30 pm on weekdays, and from 8:20 am–10:30 pm on weekends.
City Water Taxi has an on-call boat service between the airport and several Downtown locations that operates year-round from 7 am to 10 pm Monday through Saturday and 7 am to 8 pm on Sunday. One-way fares to or from the airport are $10, and round-trip tickets are $17. Service to Charlestown, North Station, and the Black Falcon Cruise Ship Terminal is also available for $20 (one way); if two or more people are traveling together the price drops to $15 per passenger (one way).
