The Fisherman's Memorial, with its many bronze plaques giving acknowledgement to each seaman lost since the first decade of the 1700's, certainly underscores the cost of going to sea to provide us with food. Beautiful overlook, but in the summer season please realize that your peaceful moment may be interrupted by crowds of tourists piling out of tour buses.

This is a wonderful memorial to all those who lost their lives at sea. There are plaques with manes of those lost.

This is a great Memorial of the Fishermen, that have died at sea, out of Gloucester, MA. I personally have relatives listed on the Wall that just out into the harbor, facing the the statue. God bless them and their families.

This monument is located directly in front of the B&B we stayed at, so we stopped by every day! It's an amazing and moving tribute to all the fishermen who have lost their lives over the years. Every single person is listed on plaques along with the years they were lost. This is a must do when visiting Gloucester!!

The Fisherman's Memorial Monument is located on the waterfront in Gloucseter. It is a truly moving and iconic memorial to the over 5000 Gloucestermen lost at sea. Standing next to the monument, looking out beyond the harbor to the vast Atlantic Ocean, it's impossible to not think of the families of those fishermen and how their loss affected their lives....

What a tribute to all the Fisherman Lost and those who Risk it all....For the Love of Family! The Movie the "PERFECT STORM" was filmed in Gloucester. When you watch the ship's come in from being out to Sea for weeks or monthes, the dedication to the job and loyalty to the crew's. I'm writhing this but to see it... More

This was a great site to see from a historical standpoint. So much to see here. Wish we had more time. We were disappointed that the fishermans wives memorial was inaccessible due to construction. Apparently will be for awhile.
