Any favourite whale watching boating company?

Checked out whale watching companies online for trips leaving out of Gloucester. All websites are pretty slick and I imagine all are fairly competitive.

Does one stand out more than the others or are they pretty much the same? 7 Seas Watch claims they have the newest boat while others claim to have the best of everything.

Hoping for your feedback.

I would go with 7 Seas but there's also been plugs for Yankee as well. What may be of more importance is if they're finding good concentrations of whales to see. Look at the latest reviews, because the Boston reviews have been terrible.

We have been going out with Yankee Fleet for decades and have always been very happy with their trips, for whales and for fishing as well.

However, most of the boats use the same spotters and routinely talk to each other, all have naturalists, and all boats are safe, have inside cabins with snacks, etc, all much the same.

We live local and 7 Seas is our favorite. Great narration and on-going helpful dialogues. Plus big screen GPS that aids in understanding navigation.

Have had some wonderful - and close-up - whale viewings.


Have Fun!
