Tis the season for Whale watching! If you’ve never been whale watching before, I absolutely recommend you take a trip to Newport Landing so you can sail the high seas and hopefully catch a glimpse of these magnificent creatures!
Just last week, I saw on the Newport Landing Facebook page that they saw 12 Gray Whales, 1,100 Common Dolphin, AND 25 Bottlenose Dolphin! That’s incredible!
I love taking the kids whale watching. We went last year and they had a blast! Just the learning experience alone with your kids is reason enough to make the trip to Newport in Orange County. One suggestion I have for all of you who are considering a whale watching trip, take blankets and bundle up! Last year, when I left my home, we were pretty comfortable in the mid to high 70s. When we got to the shore, it was high 50s, low 60s. The kids and I were freezing! Make sure you’re prepared to take pictures and keep warm at the same time. There’s a lot of running back and forth on the boat whenever there’s a whale sighting. But it’s a very fun!
