These days, it's not hard to capture whatever fascinating images crop up every day. With advances in technology, you can snap a shot with your cell phone, or you can produce high quality images with a sophisticated camera and lenses. No matter your high-tech tool of choice, you'll be glad you've brought along something that will allow you to take some visual souvenirs home with you after spending a day or two with us in Cape Ann. Tourism hot spots, from whale watching with Capt. Bill and Sons to our rich store of both culture and nature, will keep you snapping pictures.

Whether you're armed with a waterproof underwater device capable of photographing the hauntingly beautiful marine life found beneath the waters off the coast of Gloucester, or you have a great little digital deal that lets you snap a humpback's acrobatics on a whale watch trip with us, you'll be glad you came prepared.

Cape Ann tourism is robust for a reason. Year round, visitors come to this part of the New England coast to enjoy everything from deep sea diving to whale watching. Some stop by our Gift Shop and check out The Whale Center of New England Visitor Center before or after a whale watch trip with us. Guests often dine at some of the fine local restaurants, stroll along one of the dramatic local beaches, enjoying the unique play of light on the rocky shores, or settle in for a night's entertainment at an outdoor concert or a theater performance.

Whale Watch? Bring Sunscreen, Binoculars

Even if your scheduled adventure with Capt. Bill and Sons happens to fall on a cloudy day, you'll need to guard against too much sun exposure. We recommend sunglasses and your favorite sunscreen. You can also bring along a pair of binoculars to maximize your whale watching. You'll be able to get a closer view of the marine "entertainment" that takes place further from our vessel - Perhaps you'll also have the opportunity to be the first one to spot the next whale!
