Believe me, it's a great thrill when you see one of the monster denizens break the surface, spout, sport, and play.

You can sight whales from the Coast Guard Station on Race Point Beach, and even with the naked eye you can see them spouting and rolling.

But to see them up close is something else, and for that you need to sign up for a whale-watch cruise.

The whales—which seem to perform expressly for the appreciative crowds on the boats—seem to enjoy the trip as much as you do.

Several boats leave on morning and afternoon runs, and give you several hours in which to find and watch the whales. Boats leave from MacMillan Wharf.
