Blue and Humpback Whales
Monterey Bay is our backyard. We’re lucky to be able to see the biggest whales –
blues and humpbacks –gorging on krill and anchovies on a regular basis. It never gets ‘old’ to us.
We like to take a boat out of Moss Landing because it gets you quickly to where whales are feeding over the deep Monterey Canyon. During the upwelling season – April, May and June – cold water from the depths brings nutrients to the surface, which stimulates phytoplankton growth.
