Whales Say Goodbye to the West Coast and Hello to the East

Whale watchers, grab your binoculars. As whale watching winds down on the West Coast, whales are being spotted on the East Coast.

On the west coast: San Diego's whale-watching season usually ends in the first week of April, but this year it's been briefly extended. For one last chance at whale spotting, San Diego Harbor Excursion will offer tours through April 11 and Hornblower will hit the water with its own cruises through April 18.

But the best spotting is on the east coast, after the jump

On the east coast: The marine mammals are coming in for the summer! A good place to check them out is in Gloucester, Massachusetts. If you want to get an early jump on your whale watching, 7 Seas Whale Watch opens its season on April 24 while Yankee Fleet and Capt. Bill and Sons Whale Watch start up their cruises in May.

Maine's season doesn't officially begin until June, but some companies offer preseason whale cruises. Cap'n Fish's in Boothbay Harbor and First Chance Whale Watch in Kennebunkport make their first trips of the season on May 29.
