Have you ever?

Have you ever been whale watching? If so, tell me about your experience. If you have not had the chance to, where would you go?

  • Several times, in Monterey, California. I've been on watching tours when we didn't see anything at all, which is always a possibility. I've been on watching tours where we saw several pods. I've been in kayaks when pods went swimming by, breaching less than 20 feet away and looking us right in the eye. It's an absolutely incredible experience.

  • At least once when I was a young kid I don't remember much It was kinda boring. I might take a different view now that I am sooooo old (according to my kids LOL)

  • We went this past summer out of Long Beach, CA. DS1 was seasick. DS2 got a little afraid. I was not feeling great and DD was doing the "I'm the king of the world" thing and had a blast. We some some really cool pods of dolphins but no whales. Despite the sea sickness I think we had a good time, well, DD had an awesome time.
