WICKED TUNA? FILMING IN GLOUCESTER HARBOR TODAY, VIA HELICOPTER!

A low flying helicopter overhead prompted Charlotte and I to head to the Harbor this morning. A fishing captain we met suggested it was a Wicked Tuna film crew, but I don’t recognize the boat Kraken from the show. By the time we got there, a dense fog bank was rolling in and filming quickly ended. If any of our readers know more, please write. Thank you 🙂

What is a Kraken I wondered? From wiki: The Kraken is a legendary cephalodpod-like sea monster of giant size in Scandinavian folklore. According to the Norse sagas, the Kraken dwells off the coast of Norway and Greenland and terrorizes nearby sailors. Authors over the years have postulated that the legend may have originated from sightings of giant squids that may grow 13-15 meters (40 to 50 feet) in length. Read more here.

  1. I think it was filming for Coda, a movie starring Marlee Marlin. The producer inquired about hiring my drone for filming in the harbor on the 21st, but it was a union production, and I’m not in the union.

    Helicopters charge about 5x.aa expensive as drones.

  2. I also wondered why the helicopter was flying around the area of the outer harbor Thurs morning . Usually when they film for Wicked Tuna they also film up the Anisquam river to the marina. Not yesterday. Would love to know what they were doing .
