Whale Watching Info


The whale watching season off the coast of Maine and eastern Canada runs from mid-spring through October. Species to be found include the North Atlantic Right Whale (endangered and almost extinct, with a population of fewer than 500 whales), the Northern Humpback Whale, Minke Whales and Northern Fin (or Finback) whales. North towards Nova Scotia and The Gully (a vast undersea canyon) are found Northern Bottlenose Whales.
