We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The staff were lovely and incredibly helpful and the guide was full of knowledge. We got to see different kinds of whale up close as well as other creatures. The onboard food 'shop' is also great. Would highly recommend!

This was our 5th year of going on 7 Seas Whale Watch. From first time out to this most recent trip, we can say they are consistenly the best group to make your whale watching experience the best. They do not overload the boat with people as quite a few of the other charters do, therefore it insures that you... More

Went on my first whale watch today out of Gloucester (embarrassed to say I live in MA and haven't been on one). The 7 Seas Whale Watch was a great boat ride lasting 4-5 hrs round trip, it departed on time, had great seating for all passengers (inside & out) and very informative narration about Stellwagen Bank where we were...

Awesome, it took a while to get to see whales, but the wait was worth it. Saw three whales (Mother, child and escort). Captain went the distance for us.

I saw 5 whales and 1 basking shark...holy moly! Completely unbelievable experience! It was worth the two hours to the sharks and the two hours back to at least say I got to see that. We say one of the whales and the shark breach entirely. Luckily I had read a review beforehand that mentioned how far the whales have... More

I've been on a few New England whale watches, and they've all been great! This time, I chose 7 Seas Whale Watch--predominantly for their schedule. (They offer the same Groupon deal as other whale watch operators in the area.) We went on the excursion that typically departs Gloucester at 1:30pm, which was ideal, given we traveled from New Jersey to... More

These guys aim to please! I have been on many whale watches and will use 7 Seas from now on. They have a great boat and excellent customer service. The Captain and crew will always do their best to maximize your adventure and viewing and share a love and excitement of the wildlife of the sea.

What an amazing afternoon! We saw lots of whales. Boat was very comfortable and clean. Very educational trip. Learned so much. Crew was very friendly and the naturalist on board knew it all. I have been going once a year. I think we need to start going twice a year.,

It was very pleasant from the minute we stepped on the boat. Staff were friendly and helpful. We saw beautiful whales, even a mom and calf that swam along with the boat for quite a while. Would definitely go again!
