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.

Ever wonder what it would be like to kayak in Antarctica? We can't stop thinking about it! This was one of our absolute favorite experiences of our entire Antarctica cruise.

Check out this amazing morning kayaking amongst icebergs in Antarctica. Watch the bubble feeding humpback whales and penguins around us.
