Cape Cod, off of mainland Massachusetts in the New England region of the USA, is one of the country's best whale watching spots. Cape Cod Rib operates a custom-built whale watching boat which will keep up with the fastest whale. The watercraft has a 1000 HP engine, enabling it to hit a top speed of over 60 km/hour (40 mph). Contributor PO3SMith used a drone to show the capabilities of this monster speedboat, which is also used for "joyride" tours. Definitely progress since the whaling days of 1800's New England!
