The best time to see the fall foliage in New England is during the fall months of September and October when the leaves dramatically change color.
The fall foliage cruise season is relatively short due to the frigid winters. Most trips are between five and 14 nights in length.
Even in the fall, you may want a jacket or sweater for chilly evenings at sea. If you opt to whale watch off the coast, you’ll encounter much cooler temperatures than on land, so warm clothing is a must to keep you comfortable.
