Humpback Whales

Come and witness these majestic creatures along their journey in beautiful Half Moon Bay, California.  They migrate up to 15,000 miles every year, from the icy cold waters of Alaska to the warm blue waters of Baja California.  This is the longest migration of any mamal and there are many tour operators in Half Moon Bay that can arrange trips to watch the Humpback whales.  Humpback whale-watching season lasts from April to December, but (depending on the year) July tends to be a very good month to watch these 79,000 pound mammals migrate.

Humpback whales are known for being friendly giants and curious.  This allows watchers to get an up close and personal experience with whales that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.   They will often approach whale-watching boats closely and come to the surface to breathe through their blow holes.  Since humpback whales are curious, easily approachable and easily identifiable, whale-watching is a top tourism attraction in Half Moon Bay.  It’s not even necessary to go out on a boat to enjoy the excitement.   It is also possible to watch them from the shore with a pair of binoculars.

So put down that remote and quit watching Discovery Channel and arrange your humpback whale watching session in Half Moon Bay.  Experience this for yourself, not through your flat screen.
