Our whale watching excursion was life changing. We encountered gray whale mothers with their new babies that were so friendly and playful. Afterwards, we were treated to a lovely lunch at the lagoon. Highly recommend.

Prices are high and you do not need them for most of the things especially if you have your own car. Their prices are high. Take their map and get all the info you need
