Albany is a well known retirement destination and beachside resort town that is in the perfect location for viewing humpback and southern right whales during the migration season (May to October).

Many of the top things to do in Albany revolve around the whales, from the Whaling Museum to Whale Watching Cruises, but there are so many other things you can do here besides this.
