USA:California:Huge Pod of Dolphins and some Gray Whales!

January 15, 2017

sunny 53 °F

Wow! What an incredible day on the water! Sunny gorgeous weather and HUNDREDS of dolphins and sea lions along with humpback and grey whales! Moss Landing is one of our favorite local places to visit and is just outside of Monterey California, about 2 hours south of San Francisco.

The back of a Gray Whale- it looks completely different from a Humpback's back! Notice they white markings.

Alex!! You need to come visit us and we can almost guarantee that you'll see whales when we go out to Moss Landing :)

Hopefully you'll get a chance to see some in Belize the next time you're there!!
