We spotted groupons for whale watching & decided to try it out.
We had a contest to keep track of all the wildlife we spotted but I can't remember our scores anymore.
Needless to say, the sea lions & dolphins were easier to spot than the whales.
But, we had so much fun watching the dolphins play!
Each of these photos has a visible whale part!
According to our guide, we were following lazy teenage whales.
But we saw a whale tail!
I think the winter might be the prime viewing season as that is when the mama whales migrate to warmer waters to give birth. We all had fun on the trip. It was a little slow at times for the kids, but I would definitely go on a trip again. And, I think we all added a new adventure to our bucket list - swimming alongside a gray whale.
