Always a good trip. Never did not see whales in twenty three years. The other whale watches seem more packed. Food on board too.

We had a great whale watching trip. We saw 5 humpback whales and the ship captain moved so close to two of them, that we could hear and see them spouting water and actually SMELL them!! The biologist on the boat obviously loves his job because he was as excited as we were seeing the fish and he even recognized... More

The starting point is located close to the centre of Gloucester. The boat was comfortable and not too crowded (they say that they keep the numbers less than the maximum permitted in order to make it more pleasant). The guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. And best of all, we had many sightings of humpback whales - a group of... More

If anyone asks us who to go to for a great trip we will suggest 7Seas. We saw 11-13 whales and each time the captain made sure that everyone on the ship got to see them. This trip was worth it's weight in gold and the captain went out of his way to please. The narrator was excellent and her... More

From beginning to end it was an amazing experience. The boat ride out was peaceful and the crew informed us of landmarks. The crew was smart and informative. When we got out to the sanctuary, which is brilliant that they protect these beautiful animals, we saw well over 12 whale's. The narrator actually recognized a few and informed us of... More

We were able to have quite a few whale sightings and the biologist on board explained their behaviours etc. The whales are all named based on unique identifying features, so it was neat to hear stories about each one (eg. when they first seen them, which ones are spotted more often)We were on the last cruise before a tropical storm...

Most impressive is that the whales are known by name. Their behavior and unique features make them recognizable to the marine biologist who guides the tour.
