Ever been up close and personal with a 50-foot, 40-ton whale? Once you have, it's an experience you won't soon forget.


That experience can be yours to behold in Massachusetts, one of the top-ten whale-watching spots in the world, according to the World Wildlife Fund. On a real New England whale-watching expedition, you'll head out roughly 25 miles off the coasts of the Boston, Cape Cod and Islands or North Shore areas and be treated to awe-inspiring sights of humpback, pilot and blue whales breaching and spouting through the deep blue Atlantic Ocean.


But seeing is believing when it comes to whale watching. And since whale watch charters typically run from April to October, you'll want to make your reservations soon.
