We went on the Winter Wildlife Cruise, 1/20/18. The staff were friendly and volunteers informative. Plenty of room on the boat to move around or sit comfortably. Food, snacks and drinks were great. This was a great value for the price. I would highly recommend.

The cruise was nice. Learned quite a bit about the history of the harbor and buildings. The ride was very pleasant.

Went here with kids and it was a good experience and quite exciting for kids especially ... the catamaran type boat or ferry was a good ride. It also gave nice views of Boston city and the airport runway. Was quite informative by the team...More

I don't believe it's open in the Winter to be honest. We went out mid November and I think that might have been the last weekend of the season. Probably doesn't reopen until the Spring. Worth it though it was great :-)

I went on a very sunny day so I can't really answer that. If they do go out they have an inside area you can stay in. Keep in mind they really pack in the people so I don't know if there would be enough room for all to be... More

Yes. We are permitted to take suitcase in the ferry. In fact ferry transportation is there to Logan Airport and people are carrying suitcases.
