Just oﬀ the coast, spring in Maine marks the start of one of the greatest natural sights in the world. Whale watching oﬀ the coast of Maine begins in earnest in Mid-April, when whales return to the clean coastal Maine waters to feed on sand eels, copepods, plankton, and fish. Witness humpback whales, pilot
whales, minke whales, and the massive finback whale — which can grow up to 80 feet long. Sei whales, sperm whales, orcas, and right whales also appear. Hurry up, much of that wildlife will leave Maine’s coast by October.
