I have been on this whale watch twice {once last year and once either 2 or 3 yrs back}. Although I have been on many many whale cruises (Boston, Plymouth, Gloucester), this i...

Whale Watching - user review
Whale watching is an incredible experience. Cruises leave from places along the Harbor like The Rose Wharf, or you can travel up to Glouscester, an original fishing village for a more authentic experience. That is only 30 to 45 minutes away and is where The Perfect Storm was filmed. Whales are almos...

Not bad, but expensive - user review
Since having kids I have been to the Aquarium twice. It is quite expensive ($17.95 per adult, $8.95 for kids over 3) so a family of four is in this for about $60.You MUST go either e...

Not on a Friday - user review
We visited on a Friday afternoon after a whale watch. I found the inside to be very dark and somewhat cold-not the temperature the atmosphere. There were quite a few school groups th...

Great way to kill a few hours - user review

Not worth the money - user review

This tour was completely amazing! We had never been whale watching before, and being from Missouri, had never been on a boat on the open ocean before either. The ride was wonderfu...

What a great time - user review
While I didn't visit the aquarium itself, my adult daughter did and said it was just terrific and from the looks of her pictures, I have to agree. One evening we walked from Quincy Marke...

Pleasantly Surprised - user review
We were not planning to go to the aquarium at first but cold and windy weather caused us to want to be indoors. So, we paid the hefty ticket price and hoped for the best. I have bee...

SMALL and LAME - user review
Save twenty bucks and look at the sea lions outside. The aquarium is very overpriced. While there is a beautiful tank in the middle, that's really about it. If you've ever been to an aquar...
