Some of the most popular places to watch
whales are the
towns around Boston
Cod, Massachusetts. This is where the large
baleen whales such as Humpback, Fin, Minke and the rare Right Whales
migrate during the summer months
to feed on krill and plankton, particularly at
Jeffrey's Ledge and Stellwagen Bank. Between
April and October, whale watching tours will take you out to the
ocean to see these amazing creatures up close. Other,
toothed whales such as Orcas, Sperm Whales and Pilot Whales can be
around all year, but are more rare.
