Stellwagen Bank is one of the best spots for whale watching in the world. Each summer, around 50 individual humpback whales return to this hotbed of biological activity. Take a whale-watching cruise and you'll see not only these majestic beauties but also other species of whales as well dolphins, seabirds and otters. Learn all about the marine life you encounter from a knowledgeable on-board naturalist.
Perched on a bay, fed by multiple rivers and right near the ocean, Boston and its surrounds are often best seen from the water. And because everything is better on a boat, we found all the fun and relaxing ways to take in the Hub (and a few short trips out of the city) in all its glory. Relax at a sunset dinner, cruise out to a clambake, enjoy an informative tour with the best cruises in and around Boston. Don’t forget to bring a jacket!
