There are a multitude of areas in the United States that offer great boat tours. This is great for the more than 87 million adults in the United States who participate in recreational boating. If you are looking for an exciting offshore adventure, you should try going on a boat tour.

This is also a great adventure if you like to travel. These numerous options showcase historic facts and more than a few amazing views. Here are some of the best boat tours in the United States.

Niagara Falls

Serving as an international border between the United States and Canada, the Niagara River is one of the most iconic locations for a boat tour in the world. It is the oldest state park in America and sees more than eight million visitors every year. The Horseshoe Falls (also known as the Canadian Falls), American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls dump an estimated 600,000 gallons of water at all times. The only problem? It can get really cold. You also won't be able to see a lot of wildlife amidst the pounding of the water. If you are looking to see, feel, and hear the power of tons of water, Niagara Falls is a great option.

Cruises in the Boston Harbor

Every year, Massachusetts Bay has a pod of whales that return every year, each one with their own name. Even if you cannot make a trip to Boston, the New England Aquarium Naturalists that show up on the tours give daily updates about the wildlife in the area.

An Offshore Adventure in Kona, HI

Oahu, Hawaii is a very popular tourist location and makes up for more than 75% of the state's population. In Hawaii, one of the best things to do is go on snorkeling tours. Kona is only a short distance from the marine ecosystem of Hanauma Bay, an area formed within a volcanic crater. You can even visit Turtle Town, an area where algae-eating reef fish clean the local turtles’ shells.

There are also dolphin snorkeling experience events available if you want to dive in and swim with the lovable creatures. There are officially certified companies that will allow you to observe the dolphins safely and responsibly. Most companies should supply you with the proper snorkeling equipment and the experience will be a great one for the whole family. Dolphins are in abundance in this area, so you are likely to get your chance to interact with them in some way or another. Kona boat rentals are also available for both half and full day rentals. Each boat should comfortably seat six adults. While in Hawaii, you will definitely have tons of choices for how to spend your sea adventures.
