Trip Advisor's #1 of 26 Tours in Gloucester, 7 Seas Whale Watch has had the privilege of introducing thousands of passengers to the many species of whales and marine wildlife that inhabit the waters from Cape Ann and out to the Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary. Our trips run from mid-April to mid-October and are designed to educate, inspire and provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of our fragile marine environment. We are a family business – Three generations of career captains have worked from this very dock for more than 7 decades. We have a love and respect for the marine environment and a passion for providing the best possible customer experience for you and your family. We look forward to seeing you on the water.

It was a pleasant trip a little cool in the morning but worth it once we saw the amazing animals. The crew was very knowledgeable it was very informative. Would encourage anyone thinking of doing it to do it with 7 Seas :)

We took our visiting grandsons and their parents on this very well narrated and educational whale watch. The captain went out of his way to assure great viewing opportunities. The boat was clean and not crowded.
