Have you ever been up close to a 50-foot, 40-ton whale? Once you have, it’s an experience you won’t soon forget. According to the World Wildlife Fund, Massachusetts is one of the top-ten whale-watching spots in the world!
Whale-watching is a fun day-trip from the Hawthorne Inn.
You can be dock-side in less than an hour from the Inn. Onboard with a naturalists you’ll head out 25 miles to Stellwagen Bank and be treated to awe-inspiring sights of humpback, pilot, minke and blue whales breaching and spouting through the deep Atlantic Ocean. The season runs April-October.
We have gone out several times with Seven Seas and have always seen many beautiful animal. Once, while drifting among a pod, we were looking over the boat-rail directly onto the back of a lounging humpback, he opened his blow-hole and spouted all over us. Now that is a close look at whales.
