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.

On a foggy morning when other companies were canceling tours, we saw 5 humpbacks (including a calf), a baleen, and a minke whale. Great staff and an excellent captain!

Never thought we would watch soMany whales, so close and for longer period of times. It was certainly the best way to celebrate my daughter’s 7th birthday. She wa so happy and we kept saying the whales were wishing her happy birthday!! Thank you!

Crew were informative and nice. Saw 8 humpbacks-including Mom and calf. Was incredible experience. Would have been moved just seeing 1. Like that the boats work together to try and give you the best.
