Overview

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.

The most amazing experience in my life. It was very nice boat trip. Staff are very friendly. We saw 2 humpback whales so close to the boat. It was unbelievable. Make sure to take warm clothes, mittens, hat and scarf.

Despite the warning that we may not get lucky we saw amazing Whales and got very close to it. Great explanation from Krill. Booze for sale on board made it even better... Photo taken from a smartphone...
