Watching: a Must-Do in the Scenic City of San Diego by Jeff
- San Diego Featured Hotels / San
Diego Vacation Rentals
Every year, especially in
the months of December through March, thousands of people troop to San
Diego - California's second largest city. Among its most popular attractions
is the whale watching tours held at the La Jolla Shores.
Located twelve miles north
of the city's downtown district and 40 miles south of Orange County, La
Jolla is nothing but the perfect site for these tours. It sits along the
Pacific Ocean on the country's west coast and offers a breathtaking view
of the skyline. In addition, people in the region are known to enjoy pleasant
weather all year round, making the resort community a haven for tourists
and shoppers from colder climates.
Most importantly, La Jolla
has sites where grey whales passing through during their annual migration
can be seen, making the area ideal for whale watching. The whales travel
10,000 miles from the Arctic Ocean to the birthing grounds in Baja, Mexico.
Visitors go whale watching
to see the creatures in their natural environment as they come up over
the water for air. Some of the whales leap from the water and crash down,
creating a splash of seawater; slap their tails or flippers, or do something
called a spy-hop, which involves the whale rising and holding a position
slightly above the surface.
The amazing sight is a refreshing
break especially for families on holidays, and a treat for nature lovers.
Schools also sponsor whale watching tours, which can serve to stimulate
the children's imaginations and provide an excellent opportunity for them
to learn about marine life.
While tourists can watch
the creatures from the shore, most outdoor enthusiasts explain that there
is no better way to enjoy the experience than from a kayak. By paddling
a short distance from the shore, kayakers can interact with whales - and
on a lucky day, with dolphins, seals and sea lions as well.
Resource Box: Hike Bike Kayak
Sports arranges whale
watching tours in the lovely La Jolla shores in San Diego, California.

biking, surfing, snorkeling and hiking tours, or call 858-551-951 for inquiries.
