WHALES MIGRATE PAST SCARBOROUGH BEACH
With so many whales migrating past Scarborough Beach, whale watchers at Scarborough Beach usually only get to see a distant view of whales and their calfs. A distant view of a whale tail or blowing spout of water is thrilling enough but getting in a big safe whale watching cruise boat, equiped with hydrophones so you can hear whale songs as the whales swim up and under the boat is a great experience for tourists staying at Scarborough.
