The sightseeing cruise was nice but there was no 11 am cruise. The company gave us seats on the noon cruise without a problem but we wasted an hour by getting to the dock for a cruise that didn’t exist. Don’t use Get Your Guide for booking. Try to go directly to the provider.

I am a life long resident of Mass. So we decided to be 'tourists' in our city of Boston. Seeing the city from the water gave us all a new way of looking at Boston. The man who did the speaking was interesting and very informative of all the areas.

Great trip. Plenty of room on the ship. The ship was very clean and neat. The crew members were very nice and friendly. We saw whales and they did a great job of finding others and sharing information about whales in general. Defiantly recommend this crew and ship! Our guide , Cindy, was awesome. Very knowledgeable and informative.
