WINTHROP — There’s a new way to commute to Boston by sea.

Ferry service from Winthrop to Rowe’s Wharf is set to debut on Tuesday. The 149-passenger ferry operated by Boston Harbor Cruises will make the 25-minute trip three times each weekday morning with three return trips in the afternoon.

Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo, who is from Winthrop, and U.S. Rep. Edward Markey, will be among those boarding the ferry for its inaugural run. Markey helped secure $2.35 million in federal funding for the service.

A one-way ticket is $6 for adults and $3 for seniors and children under 12.

Boston Harbor Cruises already operates commuter boats for the MBTA from Hingham and the Charlestown Navy Yard.
