• Captain Bill and Sons Whale Watch - Gloucester, Massachusetts

      Photo by Kimberly Goza
      While many whale watch tours take you many miles offshore, using valuable whale watching time just getting out there and back, Captain Bill and Sons can take you to spot these magnificent marine creatures just a short distance from Gloucester's scenic harbor. Captain Bill and Sons is a family owned venture that has operated its tours for 60 years, with friendly, topnotch service. Its 100 foot boat feels less crowded than most, offering you good opportunities to photograph whales, dolphins, seals and other marine life up close. It's approximately three and a half hours of nature viewing excellence.

      If you go:
      Whale watching excursions May through October. Two trips daily during summer; other times, there are two trips on weekends and one trip on weekdays. You will probably have to pay for metered parking except on Sunday. Reservations strongly encouraged.
