Whale Watching Monterey
If whale watching is on your mind then you have yet another reason of making a trip to Monterey. As a state, California features as that rare locale where whales can be seen all the year round. But among all the other destinations, Monterey occupies a very special place in the heart of the whale watchers in its own right.
Whale Watching in Monterey, CA
This is because, while in many places eager whale watchers have to go far from the shore to catch a glimpse of this beautiful sea mammal, Monterey offers a refreshing exception. In this city haunted by history, the whales can sometimes be seen offshore with naked eyes. The Monterey Submarine Canyonacts as the perfect habitat for many species of whale thus attracting these animals closer to the shore in order to feed.
Although tourists enjoy whale watching in Monterey throughout the year, what kind of whales they would be able to see largely depends upon the season. Humpbacks, blue whales and gray whales are seasonal in character but there are many others that make an appearance religiously all through the year. The beaked whale and sperm whale which are rather rare can also be seen sometimes.
