5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

If you're in Boston don't miss this!! The whales were very active the day that we went out.... diving, a few breaches... just amazing. The New England Aquarium staff was very knowledgeable and interesting. I would go again. Thanks for a wonderful experience!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This was the highlight of our trip. Seeing the humpbacks up close was amazing and the Aquarium is a must see. Definitely a value for the price. However, I highly recommend if anyone has issues with sea sickness to take something before. Our youngest son didn't have as much fun as the rest of the family. Simply wonderful!

Whale watching cruise was awesome! Saw about 12 whales up close and several more in the distance. Our nauralist guide was very knowledgable about the whales that we saw - their names, markings, what calf belonged to what mother, etc. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone traveling to Boston!
