Loblolly Seal Cruises provides intimate, customized cruises to visit the seals off the coast of Rockport, MA.  Every trip is a different experience, but Harbor Seals, Grey Seals, native birds and other wildlife all make their home around Sandy Bay.  On your cruise, we will be entering their natural habitat and we are always respectful of our ocean friends and allow them to set the tone for our trip.   


Sandy Bay is protected from the weather, for the most part, providing a comfortable cruising experience.  Guests will see two islands with light houses - Thacher Island has two light houses and still warns ships of danger by light and foghorn and Straitsmouth Island has a restored light house and also warns boaters by light and foghorn.

On your trip you will enjoy cruising the coast of Rockport and seeing our beaches and neighboring harbors.  Spending time on the water and enjoying the natural wonder of the ocean is an experience not to be missed!

We are now offering Lobstering Trips. Come experience how lobstering is done. We will haul some traps and see what we caught.

We hope that you can join us for a Cruise.  Welcome Aboard!
