Whale cruise

Good tour with a crew that works to get you what you came for and knows their business, I'd go again if I'm out there.

I can't tell you how thrilling this was for a bunch of Midwesterners. Sailing out of Gloucester and heading out to sea to see whales right next to the boat? Awesome. I've told more people about this than any other part of the trip. The naturalist was very informative and friendly as were the crew. I love boats so the... More

Amazing experience! We saw 6 humpbacks and countless Dolphins. The naturalist on board was awesome and really informative and the captain did a great job of getting us closer without disturbing the whales.

Did not disappoint! We saw many humpbacks, a minke, and other assorted marine life close up while out with 7 Seas. We arrived with a party of 9 on a Sunday afternoon and found the dock area easily in downtown Gloucester. Ample parking right next to the boat and on Sundays the parking is free in metered lots. We had... More

Four hour whale watch trip. Wonderful naturalist onboard gives great information about the whales, then the boat goes about 12 miles out. Off in the distance you start to see the spouts from whales, then suddenly there right there next to the boat. Naturalist giving commentary about their habits as you watch them surface, dive, and slap their flippers. Also... More

I have always wanted to go whale watching and have missed the opportunity several times. This was a definite Bucket List item. The crew was very nice and knowledgeable. It was great to hear the feeding, mating, etc habits of the whales and dolphins we saw on the vessel. It was a beautiful day at sea and a Dream Come... More

Short of a having private charter with a marine biologist, i do not think you'll find better whale watching experience. the boat is large clean and well appointed. as their website states they only half fill it so you can walk around with ease and are always able to see the whales. the staff is super friendly and very knowledgable....
