Boston Whale Watching Cruise

4.5 stars 156 reviews

5.0 stars A great trip although the sea was very rough we managed to see 4 humpback whales which was fantastic and very exciting. About a 4 hour trip so a long time if you suffer frm sea sickness, although the staff were very helpful. Reviewed by:Alison B.,
