Whales are some of the largest creatures on our planet (the blue whale beingthe largest), yet they move with majesty, and not an ounce of awkwardness. Though massive, these creatures can seem illusive to us land-dwellers as they maintain a good distance from the shoreline. Seeing such a giant and gentle creature in person is truly a special occasion and could never compare to watching these massive beings on a screen.
Whale watches are a great way to get a little closer to these gentle giants. When you visit the LA shoreline, you must take advantage of whale watching season and head out on one of these 2-3 hour cruises. Spend the misty morning perusing the ocean waves for majestic life, or take a shorter boat trip out to visit the dolphins and other oceanic life.
The main season for viewing gray whales off the LA shoreline is actually early spring, from December through April. During this time, the mother whales are taking the trip back up north with their young. Whales can be seen all year round, but it's not guaranteed that you will see a whale even on a whale watching trip. If you'd like to become savvy on whale watching off the coast of LA, check out this blog for some tips and a deeper understanding of who inhabits the ocean's depths.
