Seven seas whale watch is amazing the staff is so attentive and they lead educational talks and speak over the speaker to describe the surroundings and talk about the whales and their markings of their tails we have been on seven seas several times and everything is a delight
We had a FANTASTIC time on this excursion! The crew was terrific, and included a marine biologist as well as a grad student who talked about whales and answered questions. The whales were not afraid to come right up beside the boat. Worth every penny!
So much fun!!! All of the crew were so polite, friendly and more than happy to share what they knew about marine life as well as a lot of really interesting history about the area. We were able to spend almost an hour with 2 whales (mom and calf) as they were feeding. Many times these big beautiful whales seemed so close I felt like I could’ve touched them! I can’t wait to go back next season. We even got a bonus visit from a few harbor seals as we were ending our time on the boat. I would highly recommend 7 Seas to anyone looking for an amazing experience!

About 7 Seas Whale Watch
As many as 15 species of whales populate the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. The mission of 7 Seas Whale Watch is to bring passengers within eyeshot of these enormous sea creatures as they thrash about, breaking the water's surface with their enormous heft and diving gracefully back below.
Seven of the species that populate the area are defined as great whales, which means they reach 30-feet at full growth. So while the tours spend 90 minutes in the whales' feeding area, customers might spot humpback whales, finback whales, minke whales, and even Atlantic white-sided dolphins. As the whales appear, grandiose and graceful, an on-staff naturalist describes the different species and their behaviors. Though whale sightings are never guaranteed—the whales are wild and act entirely on their own whims, much like tenured philosophy professors—7 Seas boasts a 99% success rate for spotting whales, and they offer free rain checks if whales don't appear.
Customers scan the seas from the sun decks or heated cabins of The Privateer IV. The boat was built to accommodate 300 passengers, though 7 Seas' trips top out at 149 passengers to ensure space, comfort, and a good view.
