  • What season would be the best time to whale watch?

    If you’re interested in seeing gray whales as they make their way from the north down to Mexico, the best time to take a tour would be between December and April. During the rest of the year, you’ll get to witness other types of whales that are equally amazing. These include killer whales, humpback whales, and blue whales, which just happen to be the largest creatures on the planet.
  • What Kind of clothes should i wear?

    The weather on Monterey Bay is unpredictable, even in the summertime. To ensure you’re comfortable during your whale watching adventure, it’s recommended that you dress in layers. Wear long pants, a windbreaker, closed-toed shoes, and something on your head, either a woolen cap or wide-brimmed hat. You’ll also need to bring sunscreen, lip balm, and sunglasses.
