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

    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

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

    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

    @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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
