Last year we did a blog on an excursion to Alaska to whale watch, but what you may not know is that whale watching is possible from the coast of California all the way up to Canada, and it makes a great spring RV trip! According to RV Daily Report, “Beginning in mid-February, grey whales leave breeding and calving sites off the coast of Baja, California and travel north to summer feeding grounds in the Chukchi and Bering Seas. Traveling close to shore, grey whales can be spotted along the West Coast of the United States and Canada.” There are several RV campgrounds along the west coast, and you can even find other ways to watch these magnificent creatures. Such as from the air by helicopter, or by sea in a chartered boat.
The whales can be social, and have been known to come up to the surface and take a peek around to see what's going on. Whale watching can be a relaxing and moving experience for anyone and it can also be an exciting and educational experience for children. That’s why it's such a great fit for RVers. It's a great trip to plan for spring break when the kids are out of school. You can surprise them with a natural event that they would never expect to witness. The majestic whales are amazing to watch and for as large as they are, they are truly quite graceful. Whale watching also makes a great spring time trip for retirees who are looking for a special experience that they can recount and share when they get home.
