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 are a family business – Three generations of career captains have worked from this very dock for more than 7 decades. We have a love and respect for the marine environment and a passion for providing the best possible customer experience for you and your family.

Browse our website, reserve tickets on-line, call our sales office or use our contact form to ask a question or send a comment.

We look forward to seeing you on the water.

  • Really great time. Literally the only thing was that they made a point to say something to my boyfriend about how close he held our daughter to the railing meanwhile,a woman literally had her infant bent over the railing and there were atleast 4 to 6 kids running all over the deck.but we saw a ton of awesome things.seals,2 kinda of whales and dolphins. Regardless of how nice the weather,bring warm clothes! Really fun
  • 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
