We had an exciting cruise! We watched 2 humpback whales, Nile and Pitcher, for 30 minutes or so as they surfaced to take in air and then descended to feed. It was fascinating to be so close to these huge and impressive animals. Our tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and provided excellent insight into this fascinating species!

Got to the harbour early and they allowed us to go on the earlier trip. Out on the water for over three hours and saw six whales. Lovely views of Boston on our return into the harbour.

We saw about 20 whales on this trip. It was an amazing experience. The tour guides on board were very knowledgeable and made sure everyone on the boat could see the whales by slowly turning the boat side to side. Would definitely recommend this tour.

We had a fabulous time. The weather was great and the seas calm. My English cousins had never seen a whale. We were all thrilled to see about 5 humpbacks and two seals. Three of the whales were hanging together showing lots of flippers and tails. We stayed out about 4 and half hours. Very well worth it.

We arrived on October 6, 2014 for the 12PM Whale Watching Cruise. Our lead traveler signed in, we took our motion sickness medicine one hour before boarding and waited to go aboard. We were on the third deck at the 9 o'clock position and stayed on deck for the entire trip to be in the open air. Annie, the naturalist, was informative and gave us interesting information about the whales. We arrived at the area where the whales had been spotted the previous day and there they were. Beautiful humpback whales with two calves. The captain turned the boat so that all passengers could see them and take pictures. Too soon we had to return to Boston Harbor.
It was chilly out on the open sea and we dressed for that. It was a beautiful, sunny October day and the successful whale watching trip, with the help of Annie and the captain, made it perfect. I would recommend it. Take the meds and dress appropriately. Betty Roy - Indiana

Two Humpback whales went uner the ship and came up about fifty yards from the ship where I was standing the they dove and we saw their tails much closer and two of them together, which was better than the picture that you show for this tour .

My son and I had a wonderful experience, we were very lucky we witnessed one of the whale breech out of the water. There also was a mother and juvenile, the juvenile whale was very playful and we enjoyed watching him jump and roll. Very beautiful to observe, great cruise for the family.

The sun was shining and the sea was calm which was a good start. We had been advised that the trip may be longer than the 3 hours advised as they would do their utmost to find whales for us to see. It was over 4 hours in total but we did find whales and the Captain made sure that everyone on the boat got a good view and photo opportunity. Highly recommended and a magical experience.

This tour was amazing. Got to see 6 whales including a calf. Just forgot to get sea sick tablets beforehand. They don't provide them on the boat!
