    Re: How far away can you see land

    On Cape Cod standing at the Race point visitors Center, El 30-40 ft, on a clear day I can see the tops of buildings in Boston 50 miles away. With my feet on the beach at the waterline, I can look across Cape Cod Bay and see the low hills of Plymouth 24 miles away.

    I routinely see Santa Cruz island from Moopark California, a distance of 47 nautical miles. I'm 500 feet above sea level and the top of Santa Cruz is 2300 feet but I can see more of the island than just the top of the mountains.
