Throughout the year, different species of whales migrate. This is what you should expect:
- December – April: Grey Whale
- May – November: Finback Whales
- Year round: Dolphins, Seals, Killer Whales and Sharks
My kids love everything that has to do with the water. We have a pool, and over the summer I can never get them out. One thing they love – a huge inflatable whale we received as a gift. So it was an amazing experience to be able to take them out on the whale watching trip. No, my princess – excuse me, “mermaid” enjoys her imaginative trips swimming with the dolphins – her favorite mammal.
This time of year, I’d be sure to bundle up – as you probably already know. It can be quite cold out there on the water. You can pack a few snacks, but Newport Landing Whale Watching has an indoor snack bar with drinks and munchies available for purchase. Not sure if you or your children are susceptible to seasickness? I purchased these Motion Sickness Bands for my kids and they worked great!
