It was foggy the day we went and the views were limited. However, what we saw and the narrative was excellent. It would be a great sunny day activity.

An enjoyable way to see fall leaves and the enjoyable New England scenery from a boat. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. The narration could not always be heard on the PA system, but overall, the trip was very nice.
