Fall is one of the best seasons for viewing the Giant Blue Whales while enjoying some of the mildest weather of the year.
Fall whale watching is one of the best seasons for viewing the Giant Blue Whales, as well as the second largest of all whales, the Finback Whale, off the southern California coast. Summer west winds subside in the Fall making for perfect ocean conditions to go along with large numbers of whales present, making for outstanding whale watching conditions. 2017 whale watching season set records for whale sightings and fall is a peak season for viewing these true giants.
Just outside of Newport Bay is the beginning of one of the largest marine protected areas in southern California, created to protect this rich ecosystem for future generations. The marine sanctuary covers over 15 miles, stretching from Newport to Laguna Beach, and provides a haven for all marine creatures, including whales and dolphin. The marine reserve stretches along much of the Newport & Laguna Beach coastline, and along with being a mecca for whale watching, also offers some of the most beautiful coastline in Southern California.
