WHALE WATCH -Sailing from Gloucester, MA
Saturday, July 21
Arrive on historic Seven Seas Wharf in Gloucester, MA, for a fabulous lunch at the famous Gloucester House Restaurant. Here you'll see fishermen unloading their catch of the day, much as they have for the last 350 years, making this America's oldest seaport. Then it's just a matter of steps to board our boat which takes us on a true nature trip- whale watching. The vessel is a comfortable and modern 108' boat, with multiple level decks, so everyone has plenty of space along the rails. There's a large interior cabin with seating and tables, complete with a galley and restrooms. It's a quick jaunt out to Stellwagen Bank and Jeffrey's Ledge, two the North Atlantic's most important feeding areas for whales. Chances are great that we'll spot various species of whales along with Dolphins, seals, and sharks. Onboard is a marine biologist who will explain what we are seeing.
