Wicked Tuna

Meet the Captains. See the boats.  Gear up with merchandise.

Gloucester, Massachusetts is America’s oldest working harbor with a steep maritime, art, and fishing history. It’s home to the Man at the Wheel statue, St. Peter’s Fiesta, Virgilo’s famous St. Joseph sandwich, and the homeport for Wicked Tuna.

On February 21, 2021, Wicked Tuna premiered its 10th season on the National Geographic channel. This “monstah” of a TV series landed in the port of Gloucester, MA in 2012 which brought thousands of viewers around the world to America’s oldest seaport. Each episode catches the latest adventures of actual bluefin tuna fishing captains and their crews who share their lives and real-life tales and trials of the commercial fishing industry.

Discover Gloucester has created your go-to guide for Wicked Tuna fans to discover the who, what, where, and when to catch the captains when in port, to see their fishing boats, to buy their Wicked Tuna gear, as well as to discover all that this coastal and historic city has to offer.
