whale & dolphin watching

last year over 2000 whales travelled through our region

The Great Lakes is a fantastic place to observe the annual whale migration. The humpback whales migrate north past the Great Lakes from mid May to the end of July and then return home again past us from mid September to late November, many with calves in tow.

The Great Lakes offers some amazing viewing opportunities. Simply grab a pair of binoculars & look for the 'blow' at one of the many easily accessible viewing points. Or give yourself a real treat and get an even closer look by hopping on board one of our special Whale/Dolphin Watching Cruise Boats.

The Great Lakes is also home to more dolphins than anywhere else on the East Coast.
