Whale Watching on the Atlantic Coast of the United States: A Comprehensive Guide

There are an enormous number of whale watching cruises along the East Coast of the United States, but they aren't distributed evenly. Some places are basically meccas of whale watching, whereas others are surprisingly void of any whale watching opportunities. Over the course of a couple of months, we tried to dig up every whale watching cruise company on the Atlantic Coast. We wrote articles on a state-wide level, but as the whale watching opportunities increased as we headed north, we started writing about not only states, but individual cities and towns. It's impossible to say if we included every single company that offers whale watching cruises on the East Coast - almost certainly not, as it is likely that at least some outfits remained hidden from our searches - but what follows is pretty close to a comprehensive guide.

Whale Watching Cruises from Molokai, Hawaii: A Guide

Every Hawaiian Island is a great place to whale watch, and this includes Molokai. Perhaps because of its relatively small size and modest population, however, there aren't that many whale watching cruises, in extreme contrast to some of the other Hawaiian Islands. But of course it is the quality and not the quantity of whale watching cruises on Molokai that matters, and the quality is certainly high because Hawaii is one of the best places in the world to see whales. Below we list the companies that offer whale watching cruises from Molokai, as well as provide a basic overview of whale watching in Hawaii. Read more [...]
