Cape Cod officials announced a new tour boat proposal, saying the controversial offshore wind farm can be a boon to local business.

Advocates for the proposal noted that in Palm Springs, Calif., the 30-year-old wind farm has been the area's second-most-popular attraction for decades and Eco Tours will soon vie with whale watches as the Cape's most popular according to tourism officials questioned for this story.

Jim Gordon of Cape Wind announced that his company has named Hy-Line Cruises as the official Cape Wind Eco Tour and Visitor Center operator.
