Over this past holiday weekend, my boyfriend and I went on THIS awesome whale watching trip out of Moss Landing. I had done quite a bit of research before heading out and was so thankful for that because we definitely chose the right tour. We left from Moss Landing and within 10 mins of leaving the harbor, we were seeing whale spouts left and right. Most of the other tours that we saw on the water had to travel at least an hour to arrive where we were which was much appreciated because the swells were massive (aka do NOT go if you get even the slightest form of sea sickness). Our tour ended up seeing countless amounts of whales (literally couldn’t count how many we saw) and we really felt it was the most ideal day to see the beautiful humpback whales.
Gives great perspective to the size of these whales. Can you spot the sea lion to the right of the tail? This whale was extremely large. Also, that was another whale watching boat that must have been rocking with the massive swells.
We saw countless whales and enjoyed a lovely day on the ocean minus a few large swell dips. If you love nature and photography, this is the trip for you! Just make sure to research seasons to make sure it’s the right time of year for the types of whales you’d like to see 🙂
