You can see whales practically anywhere in Greenland. There are whale watching tours in many towns around Greenland.

Summer is the season for whale watching. They come migrating to waters around Greenland in May and June, and stay until September or October. 

There are three species that are around Greenland in the winter too, the narwhal, beluga and bowhead whales. However, it is not easy to see them in the winter, as they are up north where it is dark and the sea freezes over.
