The weather was windy on the water. I wore a dress and denim jacket - the jacket was key because even though it was a warm day, the wind makes it a little cool and a thin jacket or shawl made it perfect! .

There’s plenty of places to eat before & after the cruise. We dined at Pasta Beach after the cruise which is located right near Boston Harbor Hotel. Great food!

We took commuter boat from Hingham to Long Wharf & walked over to Rowe’s Wharf. It’s only a 10-15 minute walk.

If possible uber in the parking is a $40 fee and no parking to be found on the street, the last cruise we parked at a meter and still got ticketed...uber is more reasonable!

You can pack a picnic. I walked to Legal Seafood for dinner after the cruise. There are several restaurant options close by. There was a menu available, but food options were limited.

Don't expect great -tasting food. And bring a very expensive zoom camera lens if you want to view the islands from your boat.

Parking was $40 for all day @ the aquarium, and $30 at a lot across from the tea party ship just a short walk from here. Stay on main road instead of taking harbor walk, it is shorter. (harbor walk is prettier)

I wore I wore a skirt and summer top; others had jeans. I would say dress in what you feel comfortable in. You're sure to have a great time!.

I recommend eating at any one of the North End restaurants (Italian), and then walking from there along Cross Street, which then becomes Atlantic (past the aquarium, and another 15 minutes).

On the Red Line, go to South Station, and walk 15 minutes north along Atlantic Avenue. Or, from the north, get on the Blue line and get off at Aquarium, and walk south about the same amount of time along Atlantic.
