Whale  Watch/Rockport Shopping 


Located at Harbor Cove in the heart of historic downtown Gloucester, MA. As soon as you board the Privateer IV you will be surrounded by the sights and sounds of Gloucester’s working waterfront. You may see fishing boats that have just returned from sea taking out fish, lobstermen baiting and setting their traps, and perhaps even some of our indigenous wildlife such as Harbor Seals, Common Eiders (a beautiful black, white and green sea duck), Double Crested Cormorants, and of course you will hear the calls of the ubiquitous “seagulls” (Herring, Great Black-backed, and Ring-billed Gulls). Shortly before leaving the dock your naturalist will give a short presentation to familiarize you with the area that we will be traveling to and the whale species we are likely to encounter. The trip out to the whales usually takes between 45 minutes to a little over an hour depending on the location of the whales. Once we arrive on the feeding grounds we will spend approximately 1.5 hours with the whales. Your onboard naturalist will provide valuable insight into the lives of the whales you see as well as behaviors that you witness. We believe that our experienced team of naturalists and the information they impart during your time with the whales will greatly add to your experience and hopefully give you a deeper appreciation of the whales you see and the unique marine environment that we are ALL so privileged to be visiting.
