Whale watching begins on the east coast in April and ends late October or
early November. I suggest going out when the weather is warmer for your own
comfort but if you can bear the elements, the boats are less full earlier or
later in the season. As for the whales, they are unpredictable. We saw a
lot of fin whales last year and humpback whales frequent Stellwagon Bank
each year. You can check the website of our partnering whale watch, Cape
Ann Whale Watch, when the season starts to see daily updates. Also go to
WhaleNet¹s whale watching site at
http://whale.wheelock.edu/whalenet-stuff/whalewatch.html to see a list of
companies in this area.
