Short history of the Swan Boats: Started in 1877 by Robert Paget, these are the only boats of their kind in the world. Made famous in Make Way for Ducklings and The Trumpet of the Swan, it is currently the harbinger of the start of Spring for Boston natives. True to their roots, Paget's grandchildren continue to operate the six operating swan boats, which are available to ride from mid-April to mid-September, seven days a week, weather-permitting.
