whale watching

Please tell me the best weeks to visit Gloucester to help ensure the most whale sightings. Also, are there any full service hotels in Gloucester? What hotels offer the most luxury, room service etc? Thank you for your help. Vickie Riebe

Although mid-July onwards is usually best, from what I've been reading, this is already proving to be an exciting summer for whale watching -- e.g., more than a few sightings of North Atlantic right whales, the rarest in the world! Take a look at these reports from the nonprofit Whale Center of New England:


There are no luxury resort hotels in Gloucester (or nearby that I can think of), but perhaps you'll think the Best Western Bass Rocks Ocean Inn is adequate?

Hello Vickie!

Right now is the best time to see whales. For the past 3 weeks there are been between 10-40 humpback whales sighted on each trip. Go to http://www.SeeTheWhales.com to see live videos of Cape Ann Whale Watch trips. Good Luck
