Amazing whale watching. I think we were luck, about 20 whales in about 6 pods doing the bubbles, breaching etc. All you could ever want. Also knowledgeable staff, not whale chasing and an impeller so cannot hurt the whales

We did the 90 minutes tour and it was awesome. Try to find a day with good weather, and bring a jacket and sunglasses for standing on the front or top of the boat. The skyline of Boston for the harbor isn't something you want to miss.

Best cruises to take during summer and before fall. The whale watching was excellent.

I couldn't of asked for a more perfect day. The whale watch was wonderful as well as the weather. The entire voyage takes about 3 hours. There's a speaker on board who will talk about some Boston landmarks as you depart but once you're out in the middle of the ocean, it's great to have someone spot and talk about the whales and other sea life. Obviously, every voyage will be different based on what you see. Today, we saw two sets of whales. First, a mother and her calf. Second, two females. We also saw a shark and a fish called a mola. During the cruise, bathrooms are available and very clean. There's also a snack bar with sandwiches and drinks. This was my second whale watch and I wasn't bored at all. It's just fascinating. You'll be surprised how close the boat will get to the sea life.

We went on the Sunset Cruise (90 min) and the Whale watch (~ 3 hours)! Both were amazing (the weather was sunny)! The staff is very welcoming. The speech during the cruises was very interesting (particularly for the Whale watch). I recommend even if the prices can be considered as prohibitive at first sight.

Nice boat great views all around. Nice staff. Most fun was seeing planes lit up on their approach into Logan and flying overhead. Great value.

I can't even give this place a star. The whale watching ship that went out before us came back before they even got 30 min out and the one that was supposed to go out in the afternoon canceled due to weather. Our captain however was described as what a young crew member told me "a try hard". She was going way too fast for the waves that where four to five feet. It was to the point where part of the ceiling and ceiling lights where falling out of the ceiling. At this point my 11 year old sister is crying and I'm trying to hold on to the not so stable table as I'm falling out of the picnic table we are seated at. However, before we boarded the boat a crew member was telling us if you get motion sick easily this probably wasn't for you. However she also did say if someone got sea sick we would turn around. Now to carry on with my story, before we had even arrived to where the whales where some people started to feel sea sick. The crew did come around with ginger candy to help, but it would have been nice to have from the start because once you're already sea sick, you can't really go back. As we start to sea some whales I turn around to my father and tell him I couldn't do this, I headed to the concession stand. At the concession stand I tell one of the crew members the candy didn't help it made me want to vommit more, is there anything else that will help. Very nicely he offered me a complimentary ginger ale, some crackers, motion sickness wrist bands, and more ginger candy. I was very disappointed they haven't given or told us about the drink crackers and wrist bands in the beginning. He told me the back left and right of the boat where great points to stand outside and look at the horizon to try to shake my motion sickness feeling. I am going to tell you I love roller coasters, I love motion rides, I love car rides, I never have really gotten motion sick. By now everyone is feeling sick. After five minuets of looking at the horizon my mother joins me telling me she was feeling sick as well. Then give or take another 3 minuets a child had thrown up next to us. Quickly going up the stairs to the second floor my mother and I realized you could feel the waves even more.
