We spotted 3 different whales and the crew was great! Best Whale watching cruise I've ever been on.
Both the aquarium and the whale watching trip were fun. A little disappointed to see only one whale but the boat ride was comfortable and relaxing.
The boat ride was nice. It took us about 1:15 minutes to get to whales.It would be nice if they had a separate viewing area just for kids, because it is difficult for them to run from side to side.
.Even on a hot day take a jacket with you. Take snacks for kids.
The Aquarium was a nice experience too. After 4 p.m. it was pretty much empty
The only reason I am rating this tour a 3/5 is because Viator did not properly book my reservation. Viator did not seem to take my reservation the first time around when I had booked this tour three days ahead of time. I had received a confirmation email for my tour ticket; however, when I went to the booth an hour before boarding time on the ship, the ticket attendants could not find my reservation even though I had shown them my confirmation email. They said the tour time I had initial reserved was fully booked, so I had to wait another three hours until the next tour.
Luckily, since this was a whale-watching AND New England Aquarium package, I killed three hours of my time exploring the beautiful aquarium before boarding the whale-watching ship.
The whale-watching cruise was breathtaking! The guides are knowledgeable, and the captain was skilled in guiding and maneuvering the sea craft so that both sides of the ship could view the whales. Our tour was lucky enough to see three different species of whales!
This is highly recommended, but make sure to TRIPLE-CHECK to make sure your reservations are actually booked! Viator did a disappointing, horrible job of making a reservation for me, though they were kind enough to put me on the next tour.
