The Privateer began her early years in Provincetown, MA as the first ever whale watching boat on the East Coast!! Though she was built as a whale watching boat, she was originally used as a sport fishing boat. However, the fisherman spent more time marveling over whales in the ocean that they changed the focus of the boat to solely whale watching. After 10 years in Provincetown, MA the Privateer moved to a new home in Gloucester, MA. And after 28 years of providing countless magnificent whale watching memories on the east coast, the Privateer decided to make a move to warmer weather. Just recently, in May 2011 to be exact, she made the 4 week voyage down the Atlantic and through the Panama Canal to be a part of our San Diego family. With a large platform she can hold 149 guests and provides the smoothest ride on the ocean. The Privateer has roomy outdoor decks which allow for tons of viewing space. She is equipped with the state of the art electronics and is Coast Guard certified for your safety. Be a part of the Privateer’s splendor and make your own magnificent memory.
