7 Seas Whale WatchOne of our goals in our new home of Gloucester, MA is to find the passions we share with other groups and organizations in town so that we can work together towards common goals. For us, this means celebrating a vibrant community with a history of survival, and working towards preserving our wild world. A great many of our neighbors share these goals including 7 Seas Whale Watch.


Ocean Alliance is pleased to announce that we have formed a partnership with 7 Seas to work together in educating the public about the whales who live off our coast here in Gloucester and about the pollution that affects all of us who depend on the sea.

7 Seas is a family-owned operation with over 31 years of experience with the whales of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. They know the humpback whales of this area as well as they know their friends and neighbors and will share this knowledge with you on their 108 ft. boat the Privateer IV.

Roger Payne and Ocean Alliance have been working for whales for over forty years, but in Gloucester we’re still the new kids on the block. We’re thankful to 7 Seas for making us feel welcome in our new home and for helping us to do what we do best – be a voice of reason for the wild world.
