Spring is the perfect time to stay at Footbridge Beach Motel, the snow melted away, and the temperatures are rising. However, the best part is the crowds haven’t invaded Ogunquit ME, allowing you and your family time to enjoy seaside activities, like kayaking and whale watching in Maine, without worrying about long lines and crowded shorelines.
Whale Watching in Maine
Whale watching season runs from mid-April to October, June, July, or August are the best months to whale watch Ogunquit Maine. Some of the world’s largest living creatures, whales, can be found feeding and playing within a few miles off the coast of Maine. You can spot hungry whales in April, as they come and feast on sand eels, copepods, plankton, and fish in local waters. They’ll linger throughout the warmer month before heading south towards warmer seas. Thousands of visitors come and try to spot whales throughout Maine’s ocean waters, as they breach the surface, spout water, and nurse their young you’ll get a chance to see these sea giants in their natural habitat. Humpback whales, pilot whales, minke whales, and the massive finback whale, are commonly seen in Ogunquit ME. However, Sei whales, orcas, sperm whales, and right whales are more occasional visitors. While you can spot whales from the shore with binoculars, we recommend taking a whale watching cruise for a chance to see them up close. If you’re worried about not seeing a whale, some companies offer a money back guarantee. Plus, you’ll also get a chance to see dolphins, seals, and other marine life along the way. These family-friendly cruises are available up and down the Maine Coast.
