Whale Watching (and Sightseeing)

Whales can sometimes be seen off-shore at West Quoddy Head Light in Quoddy Head State Park and again from East Quoddy Light, on Campobello Island. Whales are in these waters from late June to October occupying their summer feeding grounds.

Want to take a closer look at the largest of all mammals?

There are experienced fishermen who run whale-watching boats from Lubec, Campobello Island, as well as out of Eastport. They also pass lighthouses on their quest and Bay Cruises at the Wharf has U.S. Lighthouse Society Passport Stamps for the four Lubec/ Campobello lighthouses.
