For more than 30 years, 7 Seas Whale Watch has had the privilege of introducing thousands of passengers to the many species of whales and marine wildlife that inhabit the waters off our coast in and around the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.

Named Best Boston Area Whale Watch, we are a 45-minute drive north from downtown Boston in the historic New England seaport of Gloucester, MA

Our whale watch trips run from mid-April to mid-October and are designed to educate, inspire and provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of our fragile marine environment.

We look forward to seeing you on the water.

  • I'm a regular at this whale watch. For good reason! Amazing, knowledgable, friendly, helpful, worldly are just a few words about the staff. They always guarentee a whale view or they will give you a ticket to another trip for free. They allow tabs to be open if you want easy quick purchasing of food or drinks. Always plenty of room. Inside cabin is kept perfectly temperature
