As the sun makes its retreat into the horizon, the whales of Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary come out to play. Their elephantine fins slap the waters with such zeal that the pod seems to be putting on a performance for the catamaran of whale watchers in their midst. This end-of-day nature show experienced by passengers aboard Boston's Best Cruises’ New England Aquarium Whale Watch is hardly a rarity, as the ship’s crews guarantee sightings of these gentle giants with each excursion.
Champions of the natural beauty of Boston Harbor and the area’s rich maritime history, Boston's Best Cruises’ expert crew sets sail on cruises to suit all manner of interest. Along with their whale watches, Boston’s Best Cruises whisks passengers away on Harbor Cruises that grant unimpeded views of the Boston skyline and the King Kongs pumping fists within its skyscrapers.

RelayRides is a new form of peer-to-peer car rental, one in which car owners around the country lend their rides to trustworthy drivers in need. The process is straightforward for both parties involved. Renters choose a ride from a list of available vehicles, be it a van for carrying the whole family or a sports car for cruising down the coastline. Owners then meet renters at an agreed-upon spot and hand over the keys. When the trip is finished, renters replace the gas and return cars to their owners' loving embrace. An online system encourages participants to rate and review their experiences, ensuring a reliable network of top-notch owners and renters.
You'll be hard pressed to find a better view of Boston Harbor than the one from the top deck of Waters Edge, a 45-foot-long luxury boat and one of several boats in Boston Green Cruises' fleet. During cruises, the vessels travel to Charlestown, the north and south edges of Boston, East Boston, and the Seaport District. Longer journeys span all the way to the Charles River's Longfellow Bridge, known to locals as the "salt-and-pepper bridge" due to the shape of its central towers and the well-seasoned waters that surround it.
