  • What’s the best time of year to visit Big Sur for hiking?

    April through October is the busiest time of year to visit Big Sur and the surrounding area, but it’s advisable to check the forecast and to plan your visit whenever the weather looks promising. The scenery surrounding Big Sur is beautiful regardless of if it is overcast or cloudy. Typically, Tuesdays through Thursdays are less crowded than weekends and Mondays.
  • What whales can I expect to see off the coast of Monterey?

    Marine biologists lead whale watching expeditions frequently off the coast, and offer guided background on just what types of whales you can spot migrating and when. Some whales and marine life that can be spotted on a whale watching tour include the blue whale, the largest animal on Earth, grey whales, orcas, humpback whales, dolphins, and loveable sea lions.
