i took my mother on one out of the n.e. aquarium and we had a great
time. rates are $29 for adults, trips leave weekdays @ 9:30 & 1:30
weekends at 10:00 & 2. check out www.neaq.org
for more info.
the dock they leave from is across the street from fanueil hall, right
down the street from the north end and near lots of hotels/restaurants
so you could very easily see a lot of the city.
if you need any info about the area let me know - i work across the street
from the aquarium!
