It was the most enjoyable & exhilarating Whale watching experience on 25 Jul 2022. Kudos to the 7 Seas staff who were very courteous & carried out their functions with a smile. Lady giving minute by minute commentary was just outstanding. She was well informed and had answers to all the questions. We could encounters whales in large numbers from close quarters… once there were three whales side by side… awesome unforgettable experience. We have returned with utmost satisfaction & all praise for 7 Seas Whale Watching adventures. Keep it up !!!
Definitely a five star experience. This was our first time whale watching and it was terrific. We ended up with ideal weather for going out and saw fin whales and humpback whales. We went with three small children and had some concerns about how they would handle the trip, but the boat was safe, easy to move around for the little ones, and the whale sightings entertained children and adults a like. Parents who take children should consult some parent blogs though on how to prepare for a whale watching trip. The naturalist who acted as a guide on the boat appeared knowledgeable and was engaging throughout the trip. The rest of the crew was courteous as well. We went today and have already recommended the trip to friends.
The best whale watch company out of Gloucester! Clean boat, helpful and informative crew, very knowledgeable naturalists. Also to note! Very conscientious captain! Two jet skis got too close to the whales. Captain called them out and caused them to move away from the whales. Whale safety comes first! If you are going to give whale watching a try, start with the best! I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Excellent experience. When choosing a whale watch we wanted one out of Gloucester because they have the best access to the various different places you can see whales. They do not over fill the boat and are all about whale conservation! The woman leading the tour was extremely knowledgeable and clearly has a passion for whales and their well being! We learned so much and saw a few great whales!!! A wonderful family day!
Booked us for a last minute whale watch and saw a lot of humpbacks.
