Comments about Smart Destinations :

I love to Boston Harbor Cruise whale watch, so when it came to choosing a company for a Sunset Cruise this was a no brainer. Not only is this a relaxing ride with great views of the harbor, it also serves the double function of being a historical tour. The staff, as always, was top-notch and the guides happily answered questions from guests on-board. We got some beautiful photos to remember this year's staycation. I highly recommend that you bring a sweater no matter how hot the day is though. The sea breeze can be brisk, but thankfully I was able to sit inside much of the time and still enjoy the view due to the ample windows all around the boat!
