    Get in on fun events in Boston this weekend and beyond — cruise out to the waterfront! Virgin Experience Gifts's collection of water activities in Beantown are bound to leave a lasting mark on your memory-bank.


    If adventure is the name of your game, play on with Boston experience gifts that really make a splash! Take to the Harbor and the Charles River by canoe or kayak for unrivaled views, featured along both urban and out-of-the-way routes. Or keep your eyes peeled for the world's most magnificent beasts on a whale watching cruise.


    For Boston tours on the water that really make a splash, add some adrenaline to the mix with outings like America's Cup Sailing or a high-speed Codzilla boat ride! Zip across the Boston Harbor with wind whipping, hearts pounding, and energy buzzing for the action-packed H2O outing of a lifetime.


    If rest and relaxation is more your speed, unwind aboard a graceful sailboat or cruise experience. Soak up the city's picturesque skyline surrounded by the peaceful, romantic ambiance of a sunset cruise along the Boston Harbor. Rent a private charter for a day of fun in the sun — swimming and sipping cocktails along the Nantucket Sound. Or squeeze in a bit more Boston sightseeing as you float past renowned landmarks like the Boston Seaport District, Inner Harbor Islands, Charleston Navy Yard, Castle Island, and Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park, among others.


    For a truly unique Boston experience gift, take wining and dining to water for an elegant date, to celebrate a special occasion, or "just because." Embark on an unforgettable lunch or dinner, featuring the likes of plated or buffet-style gourmet dishes, accompanied by stunning city views, lighthouse and shoreline scenery, live or DJ music entertainment, cash bars, and upgrade options.
