After there was only one fountain to be seen far away, the ship took us out for another half hour, and there we had about a dozen sightings of whales, sometimes as near as fifty metres away. Most were short sightings of whales coming up to breathe and then disappearing again, but it was nevertheless amazing seeing those animals in the wild. We had a full hour of watching before returning, so you have to plan four hours for an hour's watch. We were glad they took us farther out though we had already seen one whale we got the impression they really want you to share their enthusiasm.

My husband and I did the noon Boston Whale Watching Cruise while visiting Boston this week. We took our repurchased vouchers to the ticket window to exchange for boarding tickets. I recommend you do this at least 30 minutes before the sailing because this process was slow. I saw no advantage to pre-purchasing tickets since we had to wait in line anyhow. They need to have a separate window for Viator to exchange vouchers.

The boat itself held a lot of passengers, but didn't feel crowded. There is room to sit inside or on top. The trip to Stellwagen Bank took a little over an hour and the air and wind at cruising speed is cold. So, if you want to stay outside on the trip to and from the whale watching area, dress warmly. I mean jacket and pants. We sat inside on the way out and back and there was plenty of room to move around and they had a good snack bar too.

When we arrived at the whale watching area there was plenty of room to move outside for the viewing. We saw a sea turtle and there were three humpbacks that made multiple appearances for us. We even got to see one breach. It was a very successful whale watching cruise.

We returned to Boston Harbor around 4PM. This cruise lasted around an hour longer than posted, but they told passenger this in advance. The area the whales were being sited was further out. I felt like we had plenty of time for the whale watching and excellent guides and would recommend this company for your tour.

The tour was amazing! We had a take 2 experience. Our first trip out was unsuccessful due to rough seas we were almost there but we had to turn around due to the conditions. So they were very accommodating we rebooked for later that day with a successful 2nd trip. Amazing

The trip took about 2 1/2 - 3 hours but well worth it. To see the whales up close was just AWESOME!

An amazing experience. We got to see Salt, the first whale to be tracked since 1976 and mother of 14 calves perform for us. The naturalists gave us lots of interesting information on Humpback whales. We also saw the juvenile UFO.

Absolutely a once in a lifetime experience. The staff were incredible and knowledgeable. It was great to see how excited the staff got with the sightings. We saw 12 different whales and watched the different groups the entire viewing time. 100 recommended!

Such an AMAZING experience! We had about 10 humpback whale sightings! They came right up to the boat on a number of occasions! It was my favorite part of my Boston Trip!

One of the very best tours I've ever taken! I've been on tours in Europe, Italy, Germany, and other places. This ranks
At the very top! A nice ride out to the Ocean Preserve, then within minutes, Whales start breaking the surface. Seemed as though our
Watching, netted 12-20 Whale sightings! Don't worry, the crew keeps the ship right in the middle of the action! For over an hour, Whales came up, and went back down.. then a shorter trip back to the Wharf.

Oh yes, it's windy n cool, don't forget sunscreen! I hope your excursion is as awesome as ours was!

The whale watching cruise was amazing. Not only did we see a whale and watched him for about an hour, it was a great boat ride out to the sanctuary and back.

This was the highlight of our trip. The boat ride out to the whale feeding area was high speed and enjoyable. Almost as much fun as seeing all of the whales. I wished that I could go on it every day. This is a must do for everyone. If you do not see whales, they will let you go some other time at no additional cost. We saw LOTS of whale activity.

Truly a lucky experience with at least ten humpback whales having fun. Several breaches and fin flapping by the younger whales. Great experience for all. Note: Take Dramamine I did before boarding to prevent sea sickness. More then half the people on this tour were sick.

I absolutely loved whale watching. We were extremely lucky in that we saw about 9 whales and we even saw one jump out of the water. I would suggest taking Dramamine prior to the trip and sitting outside on the boat. It seemed that the people that got the most sick were sitting inside.

We had an amazing time on out whale watching. We spent about an hour and a half out there. We saw about 5 adults and 2 baby whales. It was a great experience. I would definitely go again!

Pricey, but this tour was on my bucket list. We did indeed see humpback wells and fin back whales and it was life altering to see those big tails come up and then dive. I would recommend The tour to anyone. The guides were good too. They were naturalists and had lots of information. it gets cold so dont forget a jacket or sweater

We were in the Boston area for several days while my daughter attended a conference. We decided to do this whale watching cruise kind of spur of the moment instead of something else we'd considered, and we are SO GLAD we did! This was incredible. We got to see four different whales surface over and over. Each whale has names, and the crew can identify them by their flukes, so we knew who we were seeing. We got to see one whale feeding on her side and another came up RIGHT UNDER the boat. We learned so much about this incredible animals! We took so many tours and saw so much in the area, but the whale watching cruise was by far our favorite! One tip-BRING A COAT. Even at the end of June it got extremely cold. I was wearing jeans and a sweater and was shivering-our family had to go inside the stuffy cabin on the way back to the harbor.

We were luck to see few whales. Nice cruise but not recommended for people with motion sickness.
