Seven Seas Whale Watching
7 Seas Whale Watch has been leading whale watching tours from Gloucester, MA for over 30 years. Located in the heart of historic downtown Gloucester, just a forty-five minute drive north of Boston, MA.
Whale-watching season season runs from mid-April through late October. One or two trips are offered daily depending on weather conditions and demand. Reservations are strongly recommended.
Shortly before leaving the dock your naturalist will give a short presentation to familiarize you with the area that we will be visiting (Stellwagen bank National Marine Sanctuary) and the whale and other wildlife species we are likely to encounter while on the ocean.
After the naturalist’s “dock talk” it’s time to cast off the mooring lines and get underway. As the boat makes it's way through the harbor your naturalist will point out the historic buildings and landmarks of Gloucester and tell some of the maritime lore surrounding this world famous seaport. The trip out takes about 45 minutes.
Upon arrival to the whale feeding grounds, the boat will spend approximately 1.5 hours with the whales. Your onboard naturalist will provide valuable insight into the lives of the whales you see and explain the behaviors you observe the whales engaged in.
Our experienced team of naturalists and the information they impart during your time with the whales will greatly add to your whale watching experience and hopefully give you a deeper appreciation of the whales you see and the unique marine environment that we are ALL so privileged to be visiting.
The Privateer IV is the cleanest, most comfortable and elegant vessel north of Boston. The vessel was built for 300 people, however, they only carry 150 passengers per trip to assure your comfort and pleasure on your whale watching tour. Key features include:

Gloucester/Cape Ann happens to be situated directly between two major whale feeding grounds: Stellwagen Bank and Jeffrey's Ledge. Both areas are home to numerous whales, dolphins and a wide variety of seabirds

Best Whale Watching In YearsLast week we had one of our best whale watching trips ... EVER! We saw between 25 and 30 Humpback Whales (including 4 mother and calf pairs!), at least 5 Fin Whales, and 5 Minke Whales. This is not to be missed! A great local day trip for our family.
