Not too many people get to captain their own ship in Boston’s animated inner harbor. For 90 minutes, take an F-13 mini speedboat for an at-times zippy water-view tour, passing by such sights as the USS Constitution, East Boston Shipyard, Fort Independence, and the John F. Kennedy Library at Columbia Point. Departs May 23-Sept. 7, daily at 10 am, noon, 2 pm, 4 pm and 6 pm. Tickets: $139.95 per boat; each boat seats two people.
