Whale Watching - East Coast

Jump to last reply

Hi, my husband and I are going away for a few days. Neither of us has ever gone whale watching so we're thinking of doing that. All of the boat tour websites say they run until mid-late Oct - but I'm wondering if it really is a good time to go? We would be going in the middle of September. We only have 4 days and 3 nights so I'd like to keep the driving time to no more than 6 hours (we'd be driving from the NYC area). Can anyone recommend some good towns? We'd like a nice area but nothing too stuffy - we're not looking to hang with the Kennedy's lol. Ideally we want to spend time hiking or biking as well. It might seem like a long drive but we don't mind spending time in the car and seeing even one whale cresting would be a huge deal for me. We were planning to go back to Middlebury, VT but now we're thinking whales. Thanks in advance for your tips!
