Only the weather. For that, we don't have a clue, though.

Alan is right. Don't book now. Wait until you can see what hte weather will be like. Rough seas can make the trip difficult.

Yes, if the weather is nice, and you see one of the giant finback whales, it is an amazing trip. Since you are not here on the weekend, you should be able to buy tickets the same day. The other nice thing is you get to see Boston from the water, which if you don't do at some point during your visit I think you'll be missing out.

Only 2 days in Boston before you're off to Gotham? How very disappointing!

So while I assume a nice sunny day with no wind would be the ideal whale watching weather, if there is a chance of rain, or it's cloudy, does that mean it's not a good day to go?
