Cape Cod Listed as a Top Whale Watch Spot

Shermans Travel, an online travel site, has listed Cape Cod as the Number 2 spot in the world to watch whales.

Here’s why:

There are such frequent whale sightings in the Atlantic waters surrounding Cape Cod, that the World Wildlife Fund named Massachusetts one of the top 10 whale-watching spots in the world.

The “wow factor” here is huge, as minke, finback, and humpback whales regularly glide through the waters, and glimpses of them spouting and breaching are practically guaranteed. Indeed, many local whale-watching companies declare a 99-percent whale-spotting success rate during the peak viewing months of April to October.

Some of the best whale-watching adventures leave from Provincetown on Cape Cod, like the Dolphin Fleet. You can also find whale-watching out of Plymouth, MA just off Cape Cod with Captain John Whale Watching Tours.
