This tour was worth every penny and then some. The staff was knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. I never felt like we were on a commercial whale watch - it felt more like a marine research vessel. The captain and his staff we as equally as interested in finding whales as the paying passengers. The captain diverted on our way back... More

The 7 Seas Whale Watch is the only whale watch tour we ever took, so I wouldn't be able to compare them to the other whale watch tours in Gloucester; however I feel we made an excellent selection as they came through on everything promised on their brochure. The boat left on time and the ride to our destination was... More

We we thoroughly enjoyed our day on the water with 7 Seas Whale Watch. We were about 2 hours cruising down to an area where we saw a sea lion, and 3 whales. The younger of the whales was playful & entertaining working very hard to get the older 2 to play. The service was great, the boat comfortable, snacks... More

My family and I had such a great time whale watching. The staff was great we saw them checking on people and walking around boat one gentleman even was talking to my husband about the whales and a shark sighting he saw a couple days prior to us going. We did have to go out further that day but we... More

I reviewed many different Tours and decided to select 7 Seas based on the level of success in finding whales. They did not disappoint and myself and my family were able to hang out with 4 Humpbacks! We had to run for quite a while to find the whales but were rewarded with some close up views. The crew was... More

We had a group of 9 who took an an afternoon toour with 7 Seas Whale Watching. The naturalist on board was wonderful and very knowledgeable. When we finally found a whale we followed the whale for an hour (probably longer). They did there best to stay with the whale and because of that we saw the whale breach. When... More

We went on the 1:30 departure. They did not disappoint. We found a humpback and followed her for about 45 minutes. She actually breached whole body. Amazing. The guide was awesome. Very knowledgeable.

The whale watch was incredible. We got to see three humpback whales including a mother and her calf and a breaching whale. Incredible.

I work with whales in my career but had never gone on a commercial whale watch. What a brilliant experience. Our naturalist Jay was extraordinarily knowledgeable about not just the Humpback whales but all other whales. I learnt a lot! Thanks very much for a brilliant trip.
