Here we go again with those stunning athletic acrobatics off of a platform on the Institute of Contemporary Art Museum, and into Boston Harbor. Seriously, get ready for the most incredible cliff divers as they kick off their Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series Tour in Boston on Saturday, June 3. It's the second year they're coming to Massachusetts, and it will be their only stop in America for this 2023 competition.
Since 2009, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series says this is the ultimate test of aerobatic artistry. Divers launch from a platform positioned on iconic buildings, gorges, cliff faces, and even historic bridges, sometimes up to 90 feet in the air. For Boston, it's the ICA Museum, just like last year, where thousands gather for free to watch in amazement. Red Bull says the athletes perform intricate dives, falling and flipping into the water in about three seconds. These 24 elite divers dive in seven high-stakes events around the world.
As I mentioned, it's totally free, so are you ready to feel the adrenaline while watching divers leap, twist, and somersault from breathtaking heights, according to Boston.com? The Seaport District in downtown Boston will start to fill up early, so you'll need to get those free tickets right here or go for the VIP experience if you want.
And if you if you fall in love with these divers and want to follow their aerial acrobatic trek online (or you become an instant groupie and decide to follow them around the world, literally), they head to Paris, France, after Boston. Then it's on to Polignano a Mare, Italy, Takachiho, Japan, Stockholm, Sweden, Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Auckland, New Zealand.
