Highly recommend this tour of the harbor. They have a bar with snacks and you can enjoy some history and beautiful scenic views. Only $30 and worth every penny.

The T is an excellent alternative. There is also a trolley tour with a stop right there. A pass is good for unlimited on/off privileges for two days.
