    this list is dull!!! who gives a crap about the best places to watch whales??!!!!

    • Don Newbury

      Go do it sometime and your attitude will change big time.

    • Feel free to start a site call “Top 10 Lists Sharnique Likes.” Which I’m sure won’t have whale watching mentioned, unless you have a list called, “Top 10 Things Which Sharnique Doesn’t Give a Crap About” with Whale Watching at #1.

      Thanks for sharing.

      • sharnique

        lol, thats actually a great idea…wanna team up and help me create that site???

    • Nick

      That is straight up rude, why even comment?

      Good work author.

  • Don Newbury

    What? No New England?! We have some of the best viewing areas in the world!

  • Jose Hernandez

    It seems like whale-watching will get more popularity and might even replace bird-watching.

  • sharnique

    like I said this and the past few lists for that matter have been really drab and uninteresting TO ME!! this is my opinion and the point of having an open forum is to state your opinion right!! ok than!
    thanks for listening

    • Trust me, you won’t be missed on Toptenz.net if you are only going to hurl insults and foul language, which I have deleted from your comments more than once. Opinions are fine and I have the right to reply to our YOUR opinions, even if your opinions are simplistic, without thought and insulting, which they usually are. I would ask that you either change your attitude or go visit less discerning sites that don’t care what nonsense the comments read and stay away from Toptenz.net. We are better than that here.

  • Equalizer

    You forgot Churchill, Manitoba, Canada popular for Beluga Whale watching during summer.

  • Peter Boucher

    Being a Born and Raised New Englander, I would figure New England or perhaps the Beginning of the upper Canadian Eastern Border, but, I guess not……..Oh Well

  • Chris

    @sharnique You sound like a spoiled little kid. Seriously? It’s the internet.

    Anyway, Isle of Skye in Scotland has some brilliant whale watching. Nice list.

  • Raven

    What, no Newfoundland? You can get whales, icebergs and some really beautiful scenery here.

  • Dennis

    Bigger boat…Right?

    CALL ME ISHMAEL

  • Lvothread

    Cabo san Lucas, Midriff Islands, Santa Rosalia all in or near Gulf of California

  • wan luna

    Why didnt you include the philippines?! In donsol sorsogon, you dont only get to watch the whales you can swim with them and even touch these animals. this list is lame!

  • Lyo

    Excellent list, but I would definetely include the philippines. The Azores are amazing.

  • Many years ago we took the whale watch tour speed-boat out of Cape Cod up into Boston Harbor. It was fantastic, one whale came very close to the boat. A memorable experience we will never forget.

  • Dennis

    I would say that topside,starboard on the Pequod would be the best-

  • John

    If the person writing this article had ANY knowledge at all, they would know that ORCAS (mistakenly called Killer Whales) are in fact the largest member of the DOLPHIN family.

  • mcdaniels0103

    What about Hawaii?
    We just turned 40 and whale watching is now on our radar. I think our kids will like it as well// thanks for the good info.

    Sri Lanka for BLUE WHALES !

    It’s is considered that off Mirissa harbor in Sri Lanka is where the world largest Blue whale colony is. More than 5 species also can be seen on the same area. Sri Lanka also needs to be in the list i suppose.
