Harbor Tour with Mayor Romeo Theken -8 copyright Kim SmithHarbor Tour with Mayor Romeo Theke -5n copyright Kim SmithThank you to Mayor Romeo Theken, Pauline Bresnahan, and Captain Steve Douglass for a super fun tour of Gloucester Harbor this morning. A tour of Gloucester’s harbor aboard the M/V Lady Gillian is a fantastic way to experience the waterfront. It’s actually a shuttle and costs only ten dollars for an adult ticket, children are five dollars, and kids under six ride for free. You can take the round trip, which takes about an hour, or you can ride between destinations, all day long. The Water Shuttle connects Gloucester’s two cultural districts, Harbortown and Rocky Neck, with points of arrival and departure at Maritime Gloucester, The Gloucester House Restaurant, Saint Peter’s Town Landing, and more. Visit the Harbor Tours website here for a map, hours of operation, and tour schedule.

NUBAR ALEXANIAN DOCUMENTS THE DYING ART OF EAST COAST FISHING

June 7, 2016

By Rachel Cobb

Rachel Cobb: How did you fall into documenting these fishermen?

Nubar Alexanian: I moved to Gloucester from Boston in 1971. I was teaching photography and having shows, and that was getting a little boring. I wanted to start doing magazine work and learn how to do photo essays, so I decided to find the most successful fishing family, at least in Gloucester, if not on the East coast, and follow them. That turned out to be the Brancaleone family. They had two boats. They were the boats that everyone else wanted to know where they were fishing. I followed them for about a year and a half and went on four ten-day trips to Georgia’s Bank.

I have a middle ear balance problem and get seasick very easily. After the first trip, when my wife came to pick me up, I had lost 20 pounds. She just drove right by me. Every time I would tell the Brancaleone family I needed to go again, they were just incredulous. It was painful for them to see me so seasick. So they were like… No! But they always agreed. When I sold the story to Geo, the magazine asked me to go on one more trip—a winter trip (which are really bad). But when you’re working on something and it has you, you just have to keep up with it.

Busy day at Gloucester Maritime

Fish Out of Water

Not only could Codzilla be called a fish out of water, but it looks like a fish out of water sitting in our very own Gloucester Marine Railways.

I took the boys for a ride in Boston Harbor on Codzilla last summer.  They enjoyed it, but it wasn’t as crazy fast and fun as they expected.
