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.

So the tour was informative but, due to bad weather and high tides we were unable to get up close. That said it was a nice way to pass the time. Wrap up warm in the Fall!!

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.

An hour and a half tour, lightly narrated with music in between. Well stocked bar with a friendly server. Waters were choppy, but overall a good trip.

Yes, I believe they do operate in mid October for foliage cruises. The peak foliage here is usually around that time.
