Came here with a group of 25 work colleagues and had a blast. Would definitely recommend. A fun time for all ages and the sites were beautiful.

Overall, we were disappointed with this experience. The trip cost was $42 per person. All that got you was on to the boat for 90 minutes. Not a single drink was included. It took quite a long time to get a drink from the bar....More

In Boston this is the best boat rides company, nice tours, good boats, good schedules, good staff. We took the whale watching tour, we could not see many whales but the boat ride was nice, good views of the Boston skyline.

Took this cruise 7/11. Our narrator was Devon. What a great experience. Knowledgable staff. The trip is 90 minutes but went too fast! Next time in Boston would repeat this great cruise.

This was an amazing experience. We saw lots of whales during our trip and the tour leaders were really knowledgeable and told us where to look and when to get our cameras ready!

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Nothing is included,, you can buy drinks at the bar. It can get quite cold so take something warm to wear, enjoy.
