Finding the right hotel just got a whole lot easier -

Not everyone is lucky enough to live near an ocean where whale watching is possible!

The next best thing is to travel to a whale watching spot, and the Northern California coastline is an excellent option as we have over eight species of whale that live, sport, and travel nearby.

The great surprise when you go whale watching for the first time, is the variety of wildlife and sea creatures you can encounter other than whales - as if whales weren't enough!

From little sea otters floating on their backs as they crack open their supper, to playful sea lions cavorting through the waves, to harbor porpoise and white-sided dolphins looking almost like miniature whales, all just jam on the peanut butter when you go whale watching in Northern California!
