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.

It's amazing. It is my first time to have such a close distance with live whale! Although it's a little pity that I only see two kinds of whales and it's so cold on the sea, but anyway, I like it.

Very friendly ambiance and the boat not too crowded. Lots of explanations And on this 10/28 we have been lucky to spot whales and they were active. I was impressed. Full bar draft beer on board was great.
