Moving monument to fishermen lost at sea. Beautiful spot overlooking water. Prime photo spot. Plenty of free parking. Just down the boulevard from another must-see: the Fishermen's Wives Memorial.

Historic monument dedicated to those lost a sea is a prime photo spot. The setting is along Stacey Boulevard with a beautiful view of Gloucester Harbor; good place for a leisurely walk along the waterfront, benches to watch the view, access to small beach areas (one with tide pools to explore at low tide).

Great place for pics to recognize the fishermen who have been lost at sea. It's on the Gloucester "boardwalk" which is nice to walk down and enjoy the nice weather during the summer.

Amazing to see the plaques of names of all the Gloucester fishermen who have died at sea since the 1700's. Beautiful statue overlooking the harbor. Onstreet parking is free. You can stand and watch the boats wait for the bridge to raise so they can pass in and out of the harbor.

We happened upon the Memorial Service for those lost at sea. It was a beautiful, heartfelt experience.

The tribute was very touching. This was one of the reasons we wanted to visit Gloucester and was very happy we did. Very impressive.

Took a side trip to this spot. This tribute to fishermen lost at sea is located on the harbor. It was worth the side trip to see this site. While you are here check out the tribute to wives and mother's of fishermen.

Lovely setting along the water. Lots of space to walk and enjoy the view. A nice way to remember the men who have passed. Also check out the woman's memorial a short walk away.
