But it isn’t always easy to coordinate schedules and take days off of work. On top of that, planning a long trip can seem overwhelming and stressful.

Cape Cod is a world-class destination for whale watching.

The whale watching season on Cape Cod whale begins in mid-spring, as hundreds of these magnificent creatures migrate to their summer feeding grounds off the Massachusetts coast. The season comes to an end when the whales head back south for the winter. On the excursion, you’ll get the chance to observe a diverse assortment of whale species. Humpbacks, finbacks, orcas, right whales, and pilot whales are just a handful you may encounter!
