Big Sur Visitor Bureau - Randy's Whale Watching Trips
Year-round whale watching!! But, first things first: Dress warmly and in layers just in case. It may seem warm on shore and wandering around Fisherman's Wharf, but at sea it's different and when the wind blows...
Whale watching on Monterey Bay is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. This writer has gone several times. The different whale watch boats communicate with each other so if one boat finds whales away you go.
The unique experience Randy's provides is an on-board guide. It's one thing to hear someone yell, "Whale!" and another to learn about migratory patterns, food sources, the depth of the Monterey Bay canyon and other tidbits.
You'll see wildlife anytime you go, if only sea lions, otters and seabirds. Trips routinely see dolphins, porpoises, and killer whales that visit Monterey Bay year-round. The giants: blue, gray and humpback whales visit in season. Fortunately, those seasons overlap so the odds of success are high.
