Logo   Whale Watching Cruises, Gloucester
Gloucester MA has changed from catching fish to watching fish and marine mammals such as dolphins and whales. A whale watch cruise out of Gloucester is a most New Englandy thing.



Captain Fred Douglass and his sons pioneered whale-watch cruises out of Gloucester with their Daunty Fleet of boats, and now they operate Cape Ann Whale Watch (tel 978-283-5110), with daily departures from Rose's Wharf, at 415 Main Street, Gloucester, across from the Old Colony gas station.

A research naturalist accompanies every cruise. Whale sightings are guaranteed (Captain Douglass has had a 99% record since 1979). If you don't see a whale, you'll receive a free pass for a future cruise.

Reservations are requested, and tickets can be purchased from the ticket office on Rose's Wharf daily from 7 am to 6 pm.

Seven Seas Whale Watch, Seven Seas Wharf (tel 978-283-1776), operates daily cruises at similar prices. Continental breakfast is available on board ship.

In high summer, there are also sunset cruises with entertainment.
