From Logan Airport:

Taxi – The quickest way to get to us. Simply ask the taxi driver who picks you up at your terminal to take you to World Trade Center, lower level, on Seaport Blvd. You will be taken on a quick five to ten-minute ride through Boston’s new Ted Williams tunnel directly to our pier at World Trade Center. Our ships depart from the west side (the city side) of the pier. The cab fare is approximately $25 without gratuity.

Silver Line – An MBTA articulated bus makes the rounds of all airport terminals every 15 minutes for an eight-minute trip through a dedicated tunnel to the World Trade Center stop, one block inland from our dock. Fares are approximately $2.00 per passenger. Total time from your airport terminal curb to our dock, once aboard the bus, is approximately 14 minutes.

Water Taxi – An airport water transportation bus, clearly marked “Water Transportation”, circles all of the airport’s terminals. The bus will order a Water Taxi for you and deliver you to the water taxi. From the time you get on the bus to the time you arrive at our pier may take between 20 to 30 minutes. Please note that because there’s more than one ferry company in Boston, it will be important for you to tell the Water Taxi operator that you’ve purchased tickets from us, at THE WORLD TRADE CENTER. That will ensure that you end up at the right place. The water taxi fare is approximately $10 per person.


From South Station (Arriving Via Bus, Amtrak or Commuter Train):

Subway’s Silver Line – The World Trade Center stop of the Silver Line is a four-minute subway ride from Boston’s travel hub, South Station. Departures are less than every five minutes. Hours of operation are from 5:30 AM to midnight daily.

Walking – The World Trade Center is a 12 to 15-minute walk from South Station (please see map).

Taxi – Cabs can be taken for approximately $5 for a convenient drop-off at the foot of the pier at the World Trade Center.


Via the Subway:

Silver Line – Take the subway to South Station and transfer to the Silver Line (the Silver Line also travels through the Back Bay). The Silver Line departures are less than every five minutes to the World Trade Center stop, the location of our dock. The trip from South Station to World Trade Center takes only four minutes. Our ships depart from the West side of the World Trade Center (the side that faces the city skyline).

The Silver Line stop is less than 100 yards from our pier. To get to us from the station, please take the New Congress Street street-level exit. Proceed to the crosswalk to the left of the station’s exit doors. Take a right across the crosswalk, one short block to our pier at the World Trade Center (the Seaport Hotel blocks one’s view of our vessels, just across the street from the Silver Line Station).


By Car:

Our pier is conveniently located at the World Trade Center on Seaport Blvd. OUR VESSELS TIE UP TO THE EAST SIDE OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER; that’s the side opposite the City Skyline.

Driving from the North – Take I-93 (central artery) South to exit 16B, the Purchase Street and South Station exit. At the top of the ramp, just outside of the tunnel exit, take a left onto Seaport Blvd. Our dock, World Trade Center, is .6 miles down the road on the left. We are on the side of the World Trade Center Pier that faces the city, the west side.

Driving from the West – Take the Mass Pike, I-90, East. Follow signs for “Logan Airport and South Boston”. This will take you through a new tunnel to the South Boston waterfront, where we are located. Take exit 25, marked “South Boston”. Bear left at exit onto East Service Road. This will take you one block to Seaport Boulevard. Once you are at the corner of Seaport Blvd, our ships are visible to the right, docked at the World Trade Center Pier.

Driving from the South – Take I 93 North to exit 16. Follow the signs to Logan Airport and South Boston. This will take you through a new tunnel to the South Boston waterfront, where we are located. Once in the tunnel, follow the signs to the South Boston exit. At the end of the South Boston exit ramp, head straight one block to Seaport Boulevard. Once you are at the corner of Seaport Blvd, our ships are visible to the right, docked at the World Trade Center Pier.

Parking – Seaport Open-Air Parking Lots $27 – $36 per car per day with overnight rates costing more (sometimes double, sometimes a little less). Underground parking is available at the Seaport Hotel, directly across the street from our docks and ticket office with rates of $38 for any car parking there between 12 and 24 hours.
