Ocean Alliance was founded in 1971 by biologist Dr. Roger Payne. His discovery in the 1970s that humpback whales sing songs was a landmark moment for the birth of modern whale biology.

In 2008, Ocean Alliance purchased the historic Tarr and Wonson Paint Factory in Gloucester and occupied the space in 2013.
