No other city in the United States can compare with Boston. The ‘Athens of America’ is home to Harvard University, the oldest university in the US; site of the Boston Tea Party, Boston can rightly claim to be the birthplace of American Independence, as well as leading the way in anti-slavery during the Civil War. 

With its distinctly European feel, progressive outlook, spectacular cityscape of old and new braving the Atlantic Ocean, the rich sporting heritage, delicious seafood, cobbled streets and iconic Quincy Market, you will see why Bostonians are rightfully proud of this thrilling, compact city. Nearby Cape Cod peninsula is no less enchanting: mapped out like a flexed bicep extending 60 miles into the Atlantic, it encompasses a rich mosaic of marine, estuarine, fresh water, and terrestrial ecosystems including fine, sandy beaches, sand spits, tidal flats, salt marshes, sand dunes and – swamps.  It is home to over 450 species of amphibians, reptiles, fish, birds and mammals – but no ogres!

Arriving in Boston, get ready to explore Faneuil Hall and Quincy Marketplace located in Boston’s iconic downtown and just off the waterfront. Tour this beautiful, historic city and let your mind fill with wonder at Boston’s Museum of Science, engage in a behind-the-scenes tour of The New England Aquarium, then head straight out to sea for the real deal, a Whale Watch Cruise at Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary, a rich feeding ground for many marine species. Then we’re off to Cape Cod and through exploration, learn about the unique habitats the peninsula offers, visit the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, engage in data collection and ocean research on a discovery cruise and learn how marine scientists carry out research at the world renown Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.  Finally, back in Boston, have a last, yet unusual, look around the city aboard a Duck. Yes, a Duck.  An incredible WWII amphibious vehicle, touring the city proudly.
