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.

They did everything right. Service was great and they easily found whales and kept a very informative running commentary. The boat was comfortable.

Captain Sebastian and crew were friendly, highly competent and knowledgeable. Our guide Matt was supremely informative and provided timely information that greatly enhanced the experience. It didn't hurt that we saw more than a dozen humpback whales.

We saw several whales up close! Very cool experience! We all enjoyed it. Even those in our group that got a little seasick. If you are prone to motion sickness, don't forget to take your dramamine!!
