Excellent close up sightings of humpback and minke whales July 4

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.

Ellie was wonderful. We learned, laughed and loved it all.

Ellie was attentive and aware of each one of us as individuals and the ‘group’. On a Rainy cool morning she observed I was getting cold. She pointed out a nice little gift shop near-by on our walk and I bought a sweatshirt. Whew. She spoke with enthusiasm and was professional and fun. The tour content was good. Combination of current interests and glorious History of the past. I am now inspired to dig a little deeper and read more about a few areas of interest in more detail. Food was fab. We went back for seconds the next day. Loved the time she took to send us the Recap of the day to tuck away in our memory stash.....and be inspired for ‘the next time’.

Great trip, would definitely recommend it!!

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.

A little mis-leading, thought it was a cruise ON the USS Constitution.

It was a cruise TO USS Constitution; not a cruise ON it. 45 minutes was time to and from USS Constitution; did not include time on it so the time factor was a little misleading and interfered with another outing we had scheduled. The USS Constitution was a cool ship - glad we got to see it and climb around on it and the other ship (I've forgotten the name of that one.)

Was very good, but what happened to my booklets. Did not get them

Was good because we did but have to wait in the super long line. But one thing to make clear for other people. You should direct them to go to the window to confirm in. I thought I could just go in but was directed to go to the call window. If I knew that at the beginning it would have saved even more of a little line I dealt with.
