For that you want a spotting scope - a small telescope designed to be used by day. Spotting scopes range in price between $100 and $3000, so you really need to be more specific about your price range.

For the basics on higher power observation instruments, both binoculars and spotting scopes, for horizon watching and whale watching, see our article at High Power Observation For Home Or Office,
This article also includes recommendations in various price ranges.

Can anyone please help me? My husband wants a telescope to view whales from our ocean front condo. We are on the 4th floor so I'm not sure how well he could see whales if they are a 1/2 mile to 1 mile out. Can anyone suggest a non-expensive telescope for this purpose?
