When is the best time for a New England coastal cruise?

The best time of year to cruise to New England depends on whether you prefer warmer weather or more colorful landscapes. Perhaps one of the most popular times for cruising New England is in September and October, when the fiery hues of fall foliage are in full display.

Spring is a pleasant season for walking tours and visiting attractions without getting overheated. Nature lovers will love viewing the wildflowers that burst to life across the region, ideal for exploring the area’s many gardens and national parks.

Mid-June through August is warmer with sunny weather perfect for relaxing on the sun deck or partaking in a lobsterbake. Outdoor activities are in full swing with a variety of enjoyable excursions available, such as kayaking, chartering a fishing boat, or exploring the sand dunes of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
