Gray whales, humpbacks, sea otters and dolphins can all be seen along Moonstone Beach.
The California Gray Whale migration south occurs in late December through February and migration north starts in early spring through March and April. The whales are closer to shore and easier to see on their northbound migration.
Humpback whales are most visible in the summer. They are increasingly seen close to shore, in search of prey like anchovies and other baitfish.
Dolphins and sea otters are year-round residents. Watch for them any time!
