It’s a switch-up from ancient Athens to the ultra-modern Seaport district in Boston as the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series launches its second stop on the 2024 calendar from the USA’s East Coast. This year’s check-in at Boston sees the world series returned to the sports-crazed city and the iconic Contemporary Institute of Art on June 8, 2023, which will host the men for the sixth time in 2024, with the women returning for the third time to the famous steel and glass waterfront venue.
The divers will climb to the museum’s cantilever rooftop, where the men will dive from a nearly 89 ft platform, and the women launch from a nearly 69 ft platform. From here, and set against the Boston cityscape, the divers will launch stunningly complex dives into the seawater of the Boston Harbor below.

Water temperatures typically reach around in 63˚F mark in Boston Harbor in June, and diving conditions are generally good, but with one caveat. The waterfront location can be affected by onshore winds and the Venturi effect, where the surrounding buildings buffet and channel any wind coming off the Atlantic Ocean. This means that the divers will need to up the ante and prepare for some potentially tricky conditions on the day. Watch this space!
