So close that I felt I could pet them

This was a long tour but it's probably a one time experience so it was worth it. We got to see a group of 5 whales up close, one breaching in the distance, and a seal. The whales... read more

Great location. There is a parking lot (fee) right next to the ticket location. $5 covered 6 1/2 hours. Leaving from the Gloucester area really made the viewing much better than other spots I've tried (Kennebunk, Provincetown) because it lies so near the Stellwagen Bank. At many points throughout the day we were completely surrounded by whales. The naturalist on... More

Had a wonderful afternoon of whale watching with this company. Very clean boat with plenty of space for everyone. Saw another boat at sea and that looked jam packed . Saw a few whales feeding and the commentary from staff provided all the information required to understand the whales behaviour. Would recommend.

Following a conference jammed packed with information I could not pass up the opportunity to wind down by checking this off my list. It was a very relaxing from departing from the beautiful dock to the trip out to where the whales were feeding. The boat was very clean and the staff pleasant. This was such an experience to see...

So I believe whale watching could be sort of chance. You can have the best captain and the safest boat - but if the whales are not out they are not out. We happen to have had a spectacular day and saw so many amazing beautiful whales. They came up close to the boat - almost a little too close!... More

Safe boat. Wonderful education and a thrill to see 10 whales. Try to find a Groupon for Adult tix. Plenty of room for little ones to see.

We had a great day on our morning trip. It was a perfect day and only 15 miles out we saw three humpback whales feeding. Jody was still knowledgeable about the whales and captain Jay steered right up to the whales. On one occasion the whales came right next to the boat! It was an amazing trip and done exceptionally...

We've been on a number of whale watches in New England, Alaska, Hawaii, and Costa Rica but this trip with 7 Seas was one of the best. We saw so many whales up close. The trip out and back was quick so we spent most of the trip watching whales. We saw our first grouping within 5 minutes of getting... More

I do a whale watch at least once a year. Always around my birthday. My mothers ashes are spread in the ocean and I love being in the water but I also have a passion for whales. They are so majestic.

Have done 3 trips two on east coast and one in Hawaii. This was the best so far. Easy to fine in Gloucester MA. Good price for a four hour trip where we got fairly close to three adult humpback whales. Good and knowledgeable narrator. Would definitely recommend.
