The crew was very attentive when the seas got rough. We stayed a little longer so we could continue to watch the whales. Very fun!

What a great trip. We left the dock on time and had about an hour fast boat ride out to the Stellwagen Bank which is an area where the ocean floor is a ridge and many fish feed there. Wow, we saw 15 - 20 Humpback whales, doing everything from bubble net feeding, breaching, spy hopping, tail slapping etc. We saw two sets of mother and calf, and we were in the middle of them. There was a naturalist on board who was telling us where to look and what was happening. Totally enjoyable excursion. Would recommend this trip any day.

Great cruise, we were so lucky we met several minke whales and seals but most of all 7 humpback whales in total, alone or in small groups, mostly mother and calf with another female. The staff was quite experienced in spotting the whales and pointing them to us and also recognizing them by the tail, so calling them by name and explaining a little af what is know of each individual.
We could see them swimming close to the surface for breathing and then diving looking for food showing their tails, unforgettable experience.
What I also liked is that all this was done paying attention at minimizing the impact on the animals, keeping distance and using a waterjet propelled boat.

An amazing experience, even though it was quite cold. Several whales spotted and they were magnificent... A couple were quite close to the boat and thus able to appreciate how big they are. Would definitely do it again and recommend to anyone visiting Boston.

Did not see any whales but the experience was great and we received a rain check which we used a few days later, where we did see humpbacks. Great staff. Great experience.

Cruise was enjoyed by all the family, well organised and boat had very good facilities and lots of good viewing points for spotting the whales. Were advised that there was a high probability of seeing whales and we were not disappointed, great sightings of three humpback whales.
