Why Go Whale Watching in Maine?

If you’ve never embarked on a whale watching tour before, you’re in for a treat! No Boothbay Harbor vacation is complete without taking a few hours to admire some of the largest mammals on the planet. Mid-April through the end of October is the best time to book a whale watching tour near Newagen Seaside Inn. Keeping a keen eye out for our flippered friends is more than a spectator sport; it’s a surreal, nature experience you’ll never forget. While there’s a possibility you might squint a breaching whale somewhere in the distance from shore, it’s arguably much better to have a front-row seat to all the action. Plus, you’re bound to see a whole array of marine life, including seals, puffins, and dolphins. A few of the whales you might see include pilot whales, minke whales, finback whales (which grow up to 80 feet in length), sei whales, sperm whales, humpback whales, and orcas.
