Nature has enough to satisfy man’s need, but not enough to satisfy man’s greed. Despite a worldwide ban on whaling since the late 1980s, a few countries in the world, till date, hunt whales, either for sport or for ‘scientific research’ purposes. To curb this atrocity and to create awareness about the gentle giants of the oceans, the Pacific Whale Foundation started celebrating the 3rd Saturday of February every year, as World Whale Day. As a part of their initiative, the Pacific Whale Foundation hosts the annual Maui Whale Festival in Hawaii, USA. This festival takes place during Maui's peak humpback whale season. And if you cannot make it in time for this festival, worry not. Holidayme has got you covered! Here’s a list of the best places in the world to go whale watching.
