We took a whale watching tour and the boat was a Cat with properless drive. This was very cool as the whales could contect the boat hull without injury. Our boat became a big back scratcher, so funny will do this again.

A lovely area with lots of different cruises available to different islands or whale watching. The latter cruise was excellent with some fantastic close views of whales. Although make sure you bring an extra cost as it gets cold on the fast boat. Brilliant trip.

The waterfront was absolutely beautiful. The weather was perfect and there were many people out enjoying it. Families playing in the splash fountains and just walking around.

This provides some time away from the busy city and the crowds. It is great for people watching and recharging the batteries.

The Waterfront is central to the Children's Museum and Boston Tea Party Museum. There s garage parking nearby. And it's walking distance to coffee shops, like Dunkin Donuts and mid range restaurants.
