I was pretty stoked and don't want to take away from the memorial but it was interesting to see after having been introduced to it from an episode of 'Bewitched' many years ago. The boardwalk is very pleasant.

I had my picture taken in front of this monument because I am descended from a line of master mariners who fished the waters between Nova Scotia and Gloucester in the day of schooners. It is centrally located on a beautiful boulevard close to narrow, one-way Main Street where all the cute shops and restaurants are.

Easy walk along the cement path that runs along the coast, a fitting tribute to those who lost their lives while making their living at sea, lots of descriptive plaques. Nice place to relax and watch the ocean with boats coming and going. Love the monument, very beautiful piece of art. Hubby and I have been several times to walk... More

A wonderful memorial to all those who challenge the ocean every day, and especially to those souls who have lost their lives at sea. The names are listed back about 200 years or so. Very well maintained and moving.

Just a short walk from the main part of Gloucester. The memorial itself is an excellent piece of art. The list of all those lost brings home the dangers of this livelihood. Seeing three or more names from the same family lost together makes you wonder at the hardships endured by those left behind.

A moving Memorial to all the Gloucester Fisherman that have been lost at sea. A beautiful walk along the way to the memorial. Do not forget to have a look at the touching Wives & Children of Gloucester Fisherman's memorial on the other side of the bridge along the same walk. It has a flower garden around it and benches...

I had my sons watch The Perfect Storm before we visited Gloucester and the Fishermen's Memorial Monument is shown at the end of the movie. Seeing it in person really made me stop and reflect and really think about all of the men/women who have been claimed by the sea...so many dates and names.

This is a very fitting memorial to the fishermen of Gloucester. The names of those lost at sea are listed. It's a quick stop here and a must-see if you're in town.

Spending some time to read the names and see the recurrent family losses over generations gor there work at sea was very moving. This is not a long visit but certainly a iconic spot worth taking in.
