Dropping Off Passengers at the Boston Cruise Port (With Pictures)

We’d never make the claim that getting around Boston in a car is easy. With winding streets, heavy traffic, and aggressive drivers, navigating the city isn’t for the faint of heart. The good news is that with the directions below, we’ll show you exactly where to go to drop off passengers.

First things first, the cruise port is located near the South Boston neighborhood, across from Boston Logan International Airport. The address is:

Black Falcon Cruise Terminal
1 Black Falcon Avenue
Boston, MA 02210

Once you arrive at the terminal, you’ll want to follow Drydock Avenue around past the cruise ships, turning right onto Black Falcon Avenue. Here, you’ll follow the instructions for the passenger drop-off area.
