What people are saying about Boston
This was an amazing whale watching cruise. We saw over 10 whales up close and personal. Several in the distance. I would highly recommend this tour. They guarantee whale sightings and will give you a free cruise ticket that never expires if you don’t see a whale. They drive you out to a protected area 1 1/2 hours out. You watch for whales in this protected area for an hour. Then another hour and a half back. It could last 3-4 hours depending on how long it takes to find them. You could see the sprays in the distance of the humpbacks. Three huge humpbacks surfaced within a few feet from us and lazily took in air and you could see their blow holes so well. Then they dove down. What an incredible experience! There is a great guide from the New England Aquarium on board keeping you posted on where to look.
The trip was great and we did see some whales and dolphins!! Unfortunately as we were outside we could not hear any of the commentary at all. When we mentioned this to one of the crew they said if we wanted to listen we had to sit inside, no-one had mentioned this and a lot if us were very disappointed. Also we were not given the guide book/leaflet which again was disappointing. Having said that it was an amazing 4 hour trip which we would thoroughly recommend.
The guides were genuine, historically knowledgeable, included participants in discussions and allowed questions. Exceptional guides who are ruining their voices trying to speak over city noises. Most tour guides around the world have amplified microphones. The Freedom Trail tour guides deserve the same. Diane Russell, Speech-Language-Voice Pathologist
The history was great to learn and the guide was excellent but we would have liked a bit more sightseeing. We covered a small portion of the Freedom Trail in 90 minutes.
The tour was very detailed and our guid has a good knowledge of the tops she spoke about. The only negative was the tour was too large with over 50 people
